While we were in the sub, we saw many small and medium sized fish, one huge shark, lots of coral and about 4 scuba divers who all waved.  We went to a depth of 104 feet, and went by the edge of a huge drop off that went straight down.  My favorite part was the shark, and going through a school of silver fish.  They were everywhere!
