The day I pooed my pants!

This video needs very little introduction. Join us on the second day of diving with tiger sharks. Safe to say things got a little hairy on this one. It was an incredible experience and something we’ll remember for a very long time.

Thanks for watching!! Sending good vibes from La Vagabonde

  1. Wow! I hope you have your life insurance paid up. Little Lennie could had lost a father with encounters like what I just saw! Don’t forget you have a family to take care of Mr. Riley.

  2. There was a guy who used to play this same game… only he did it with grizzly bears.

    Needless to say, he is no longer with us.

    Risk versus reward…

    1. American bear enthusiast, environmentalist, and documentary filmmaker and founder of the bear-protection organization Grizzly People. He lived among grizzly bears of Katmai National Park in Alaska for 13 summers. At the end of his 13th summer in the park, in 2003, he and his girlfriend Amie Huguenard were killed and almost fully eaten by a 28-year-old brown bear, whose stomach was later found to contain human remains and clothing.

  3. Hello Riley and Elayna,
    I just returned from a 2 weeks trip to Polynesia. Did some snorkeling with sharks all around. Never been so scared in my life.
    I enjoyed more having a glass of Rosé wine ?in the boat. Much safer.

  4. Wow!! You guys are either the craziest or bravest people, I’ve ever seen. Loved it, thanks for sharing. Lenny is beautiful. Take care. Enjoy

  5. I figured out why there is never a like button, if I use the link emailed to me (thank you) I can watch the video but no like button is offered. Only when I go to the youtube site directly then there I can use the like button. capish?

  6. Oh yeah, buttface only opened it’s mouth, but did not bite…still… scarry and just a brush by with his teeth is danger enough.

  7. The Sharks could have break the porthole window while feeding from it!.
    You were lucky with the tiger one Riley!
    Lennie’s smile at the end is soooo adorable.
    Regards from Mauritius Island, Olivier.

  8. Think about it. Thanks for the last few years but after these stunts I now unsubscribe. As I said think about it

  9. Phew! Am sooo glad the freaking shark episode is over and done – – – is it?
    What on earth ( I should say “sea”) possessed you to swim with these 400 kg monsters?
    What is next, petting pit bulls?
    Don’t you have enough thrills sailing the 7 seas?
    Am I mad? You bet!

  10. Hi guys,
    Always a pleasure to see your videos.
    I hope you guys are not taking any risks to try make your vids more exciting.
    You know people will watch your videos even if you are not up close to sharks or taking risks.
    I guess you would have thought already of what you would do if an accident happened as in life changes.
    And accidents do happen, usually when you least expect, but then again life is for living right.
    So enjoy yourselves and stay safe.
    Little Lenny is a real treasure!
    All the best.

  11. Hi Guys,

    Nice video, as always. You really seem happy and it’s great to watch!

    About the sharks: As an ex-dive instructor who’s been diving in Australia (yes :-)), the Maldives, the Caribbean, and French Polynesia, I’ve done many encounters with sharks, including hammerhead sharks, Silvertips sharks (aka albimarginatus), lemon sharks…. but,……. never with tiger sharks, and for a good reason! It is not safe….

    I remember when in Rangiroa (in the Tuamutus), a tiger shark was spotted in the area. The alert was launched and for several days, all diving clubs and local fishermen (spearfishing) did not go into the water.

    Don’t get me wrong, Rangiroa (and French Polynesia in general) is well known for sharks, and it is one of the good spots to watch them in their natural habitat. Divers are guaranteed to see sharks on every single dive. There is no need to feed them to attract them, and that’s what’s so great about this. Tiputa pass is actually known for its wall of sharks (famous worldwide), where you can dive and watch hundreds of sharks in one single dive. Still, a tiger shark is a no-no, even in Rangiroa.

    A tiger shark is dangerous and unpredictable, much like a great white or a bull shark (just Google “bull shark reunion island” to read about the last accidents).

    You’ve taken an enormous risk there, and I can’t support what Daniel is doing in the Bahamas. Do it with different kinds: black tips, white tips, grey reef sharks, but not tiger sharks. And never ever any feeding.

    Did you notice (as seen on the video) when the tiger shark was closing its eyes when getting close to you? Do you know what it means? It’s a protection feature meant to protect their eyes when they attack their prey. When they do that or start to bend their body, it means that they’re getting ready to attack. Time to get out of the water.

    Just my 2 cents.

    All the best.

    Erik from La Grande Motte (I just spent the day next to Outremer facilities).

  12. Further to my previous post, here is what the Florida Museum has to say about the tiger shark:

    Danger to Humans
    The tiger shark is a formidable predator and second only to the white shark (Carcharodon carcharias) in terms of the number of reported attacks on humans. Tiger sharks are often curious and unaggressive when encountered (Compagno et al. 2005) yet are one of the three species most commonly implicated in shark attacks and fatalities and show should be treated with extreme caution and a great deal of respect (ISAF 2018).

  13. Been a big fan for a long time. But, this video strikes me as irresponsible. Act smarter and think Lenny. Sincerely.

  14. Nice images but I canot suscribe to the equation risk or accident for seconds of sensation. Your baby SMILE is not suffisant? And frankly feeding shark is NOT respecting wild life balance. Enjoy your life on board with more respect for your love and our world! Thank’s for all your other very joyfull images , day and day little gift of our life on board with your enlarged family! ,
