So you are 20’ down and 1 minute into your safety stop when a 16’ Great White shark swims by you slowly and disappears into the murky waters surrounding you. Will it return? What do you do next?

[Choose #3] It would probably be a progression of all these starting at 5 most likely. Either way I would be get a new wetsuit out of it.

[Choose #3] I was getting ready for a dive on a retired Australian Navy ship- I noticed all the other divers were wearing shark shields. I was then told two White Pointers were seen the day before. I was brave and dived between two of the women.

[Choose #1] 3 is what I think I’d do, but this one is most likely the option I would end up doing, although option 4 sounds interesting as well.

[Choose #3] I use a dropped point not a blunt tip and a GWS is most dangerous at the surface.
