    I am a big fan of sharks and couldn’t wait to see the show shark attack experiment live.
    It was a big disappointment. The host was terrible and the show was a wast of my time.

    • Hi R Tony,

      I’m sorry you didn’t like the show. We were certainly dissapointed we couldn’t bring as much of it to you live as we had planned. During the show opening and later in the show we explained that the unusually strong ocean currents made it too dangerous to put divers in the water in the dark. We had faced bad weather all week durring rehearsals, and while it cleared up a bit right before the show, the currents were still just too hazardous.

      Good or bad, we appreciate all posts about the show. Thanks for sharing your feelings.
