Curious if this was a SCUBA Diver or a free diver. Definitely not a snorkeler because she has a weight belt on.

Supposedly the bubbles cause sharks to freak out and flee, so you'll only ever really see them as you go in. People who dive hard core for sharks supposedly like rebreathers for that reason which are a different animal than a conventional SCUBA setup.

I'll pretty much only go in open water only if I can see the bottom. Whether that's 15' or 50'. Don't know why, but even when SCUBA diving I like to know where the bottom is, even if I am not going to descend that far.

Best move when scuba or snorkeling with others is to feed the fish, feed the fish when the others are not looking and the look and panic when a group of fish come out of nowhere and surrounding the people in the water it hilarious.
We used to do this with tortillas. Put them in a ziplock bag and go down to 30' or so, then start breaking off pieces. At 25 - 30' with a light current your air will last a good 30-60 minutes.

A friend of mine used to use the can of squeeze cheese to feed the fish and lost the tip of his left index finger when he didn’t move his hand away fast enough and a moray eel got him. There was video of it at one time and he had a picture of the incident on the wall in his office.
