A couple of pictures from the last few dives of Kit’s Advanced Open Water class in Turks and Caicos.
This picture is of the other group that was on the boat. The leader of that group was spearing Lionfish since they are an invasive species in the Caribbean. Once they were speared he would live feed them to the reef sharks which where abundant on our dives. This picture was taken right before the lionfish on the spear wiggled his way up the rod and stuck the guide with one of its spines.
The guide was ok, although in tremendous amount of pain from the lionfish venom. Moral of the story… Just cause you got the fish on the line doesn’t mean the fish still can’t get you.
