Big Reef, Big Teeth
The skindiving overlord with our name has quite a Net presence. I'll pick a few citations for posts.
You can get a sense from his great-white-shark dives (in combo with Rodney Fox). Pix and descriptions here.
Not surprisingly, you get free wine, beer, or sodas when you decide to swim amongst the vicious fishes. However, they could use more comforting details; they claim a 100% last-season success rate photographing sharks between 10 and 17 feet. They also state "Expeditions led by Rodney Fox have had a 94% success rate over 30 years." I choose to assume that means that six of 100 folk do not see sharks and not something more nefarious.
Mike himself looks like a jolly enough guy (and is likely to have all his limbs). You can see him and click through to various dive summaries here.
