Waiting for the Manta that Never Comes

I saw a shark! Swimming past in deeper water. Possibly a white tip reef shark or gulper shark, or small nurse shark. Lionfish, lots of the usual fish. Titan triggerfish tried to eat the red bob attached to dive master! Waited at a usual "cleaning area" hoping for manta rays, but saw none, because it was just the start of Manta season. Right before that saw ~4ft shark swimming along. More spread out and comfortable dive.
