I took this video a couple of years back, at a site not well known and they don’t know there are heaps of grey nurse there near all year round and it will stay that way or it will become another green zone! Any way, in it are a couple of chunky male grey nurse that were scouts for the other ten there that day. There are usually 10 to 20 greys here and normally here they don’t mind a bit of company, especially if a skip breath a lot to appear quiet and don’t try to take a close up of the largest females skin texture,lol.
The group are in my stills but I wasn’t videoing when the rest turned up, but when I tried to get a close up of the very large 13 to 14 ish foot females skin that was one of the first of the rest to turn up, the male on my right came back and tail slapped me, jealous I suppose,lol.No harm done, no bruise or broken skin, it hurt though.

So grey nurse are that common there, over here they are on the endangered list.

we see much more of the browns verses the greys. i do see the greys on open coral heads in the lagoon, but the browns hang around much closer to the shorelines.

At what depths do you see the grey nurse?

not terribly deep, around 60'-70'

had a whole mess of them on a dive a few weeks ago, mixed in with black and white tips. we did the crinkle the empty plastic water bottle trick......minutes later 30-40 sharks in the area. i was getting a bit nervous as some of them went feeding mode, going nose first into the crevices like a pack of dogs. i just dumped all the air in my BC and took a seat :)
