No one, dive masters included, should touch the sharks. Hands (and fins!) need to be kept away from wildlife and corals.

Noone will argue that its OK to touch the marine life or corals while diving or snorkeling the reef. Any trained guide knows not to do this for a number of really good reasons.
When asked why they do it, San Pedro Tour Guides will answer its to entertain the tourist and entertaining the tourist gets more tips.
That tells me the most powerful influence can be an educated public that shames the Tour Guide and doesn't reinforce the negative behavior with tips.

Not reinforcing negative behavior includes not posting videos of said behavior or, at the very least, providing a disclaimer that the practice is wrong and not condoned.
Obviously, Island Divers endorses the practice and concerned divers should go to other providers for their tours.

You and I have just done that, however Island Divers is no different in this respect than any other dive operation on the island, including mine and a more effective approach IMHO is to educate the tourist (we're doing that right here)and discourage tipping the Guides.
As for posting the video, well it just afforded us the opportunity to speak out, didn't it.
