The Last Cen­tu­rion

Scuba Diver Australasia - - Gear -

My dive part­ner, Jim Beck­ett, and I are fin­ish­ing our last deep dive of the day, hop­ing to spot a Scal­loped ham­mer­head. At a depth of one hun­dred feet, and sil­hou­et­ted by the sun, we look up to sight this dark shape silently mak­ing its way to­ward us. Be­cause of re­lent­less gill and ghost net­ting, to­day, ham­mer­head sharks are well pro­tected around Co­cos Is­land.
