Not surprised that you have shark troubles diving in the Jupiter area. The shark feeding dives many charters out there run are bad news. Illegal in FL waters, should also be illegal in federal waters.

Cook up those lionfish. They are really tasty.

Glad the sharks were not more interested in you than the were. Appeared you had you hands full with gear and solo to boot. Obviously not your first rodeo though. Would like to think I could be a as calm should I get in that situation.
What were you, about 90 feet? Saw 60 as you surfaced.

Thanks, I think we were around 80 or 90 that day. We generally dive for lobsters between about 80 and 105 feet and I don't pay that much attention to the depth, I watch the computer for time remaining pretty carefully, but not so much about depth. I don't normally screw up that frequently with the scooter, but it makes for "interesting" video.
