Wow, it sounds like you had a wonderful experience. We also just loved snorkeling with the bautiful Rays and Sharks. And also I got to pet a Shark. I think this kind of encounter raises awarness and makes people love these animals. I think this could save Sharks because they are not looked at just like killers but creatures you don't alwyas have to fear and maybe even love. I sure will never eat Shark again and appreciate the beauty of all sharks even so I am scared of certain types. And I "Love" the Rays!!!
