Coast diver to contend with sharks in South African waters

SUNSHINE Coast teacher of marine sciences, PADI Scuba Diving Instructor and AWARE shark specialist, Tony Isaacson has dived in some of the most amazing diving locations on the planet.   

He has logged over 3000 dives in more than 20 countries around the world and has explored the depths of the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans.   

Isaacson has documented the marine diversity in exotic locations like Komodo, Fiji, Tahiti, Easter Island and the Galapagos Islands.  

He was a diver on the 60 Minutes team that filmed a documentary to re-introduce navy clearance diver Paul de Gelder, who lost his arm and leg in a bull shark attack in Sydney Harbour, to bull sharks in Fiji.   

His next adventure is a diving trip to South Africa's Wild Coast, which is known as one of the most sensational natural predatory shows on earth.   

The Sunshine Coast's Point Cartwright starred as South Africa's Wild Coast in this video. Read about swimming with sardines in South Africa
