Highlight Dive - Thresher Shark

One of the most memorable dives of my life. Monad Shoal is a cleaning station and is a popular place to see large Manta Rays and Thresher Sharks. You drop down to the bottom just over 20M and look over the dropoff and wait.

I'm not sure if it is the building anticipation or the thrill of finally seeing something but when the Thresher came in it seemed like something out of a cartoon. Their bodies and faces are like nothing I've ever seen underwater. What a beautiful animal.
