In the Florida Keys I had our family out in a 16 foot jet boat when my daughter spots a couple fins breaking the waters surface. We went to see the dolphins and it was a 12 foot hammerhead shark! The thing was as long as the jet boat, that will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

We went fishing on a 56' boat for cobia, and what we saw as we went from Destin to Panama city was plenty of sharks swimming close to shores, you could see them crystal clear as everyone was swimming close to the beaches. I will never , never go out to deep, it makes me somewhat nervous even when at crab island after the poker run. Jeff

Beautiful beach. Hard to relax and go out and enjoy it if you think you might get munched on!

Cool! Interesting text. Can't imagine getting attacked in the water. Helpless. No way to fight back.
