Diving in Sharm El Sheikh with Hammerheads

Many divers won't belive there is a very good chance of a shark encounter in Sharm El Sheikh.
You need the right conditions and an experienced baot skipper and dive guide who knows what their doing.
We've had two encounters with these majestic sharks in the space of five days. Or should I say they found us. We have a little trick that we learnt from our South African colleagues while on our Big shark tour there (no chum involved). When watching our South African guide perform this action I thought to my self "what a load of cobblers" but along came a black fin shark to investigate the action.
It also works here in Sharm with the Hammers, and it brings them in much closer than they normally come. We can't guarantee it will work every time but our sightings are around 90% strike rate.
We actually pulled in two groups of five on our last attempt. We knew they were a different group as the second group had two very small hammers with it. Awesome sight.
Five days ago we had in excess of twenty. As they were all around us it was dificult to count how many exactly.
