Mano-a-mano With A Shark

Mano a mano LRHeading to Punta Sur, at the southernmost tip of Isla Mujeres, we stopped off to see a young man go mano-a-mano (hand-to-hand) with a couple of sharks (Nurse Sharks to be precise).  He dragged the first shark out, and I would estimate his length at about 5-feet. Then he grabbed Jaws and brought him to the surface; Jaws was probably closer to 9 to 10-feet (maybe a wee bit larger).  Both were bigger than I wanted to tangle with (which I could have done for about $200 MXN).  I decided to take a pass on that challenge.
