There were rumors that there was a Tiger shark at Rocky. Just rumors, but enough to keep Sharif exited.

On the first dive at Rocky we saw him, deep down and then turning away and disappearing. On the second dive alll divers went together as one big group. Then we saw it again, and it was disappearing again. Like one second after it was there again. From a different direction. realized that it must be two tigers! I guess I was the only one realizing this and a few guy s believed me this after we analyzed the photos we took. The shark appeared later again and swam right at us. This is the moment on this video.

Tiger shark!
Amazing what a powerful creature this is!

We saw that it is a female tiger shark and we later named her Sally...

Zarbagad island was the later divesites of the day. An afternoon dive, a visit on the island beach where turtles nest and a night dive. On the afternoon dive we saw a torpedo ray. Here is the video.
