A few years ago I was in Honduras with our company looking for whale sharks. While the island of Utila turned out to be hit and miss for commercial shark diving I did get a chance to befriend Karl Stanley and his unique shark diving operation on Roatan.
Actually, to be fair, when I first met Karl he had no idea the sharks he was encountering at 2000′ were to become one of the top shark destinations on the planet.
Karl and his submarine “Idabel” had stumbled upon a veritable treasure trove of simply titanic Six Gill sharks off the coast of Roatan. Soon divers, filmmakers, and television productions were seeking Karl out – for good reason.
