We had passengers from Perth, Melbourne and Sydney – they said it was the most amazing thing they’d ever seen in their life.

We went round for two hours right up close and personal you could reach over and touch them (the sharks). They were very docile and very well fed, we counted around 70 tiger sharks of all shapes and sizes. Some of them were up to six metres long.

The sharks -which can grow up to six-and-a-half metres long and weigh 520 kg- are known to prey on young humpbacks or adults in distress, but it isn’t clear what led to the featured whale’s demise.

Cox added it was his belief the whale drowned after entering shallow waters before it became the shark’s supper.

The circle of life…
