200 yards away and they were lost? Something doesn't sound right.

Safety Marker and a whistle would have prevented a very long night.

I read an updated article this morning that said he had, and used, both. Very strange that they weren't spotted.

They got some pretty big sharks there too. I think I would have been a bit nervous floating around there!

A 'certified dive master' and a diving instructor incapable of swimming 200 yards, yeah right, I believe that about as far as I can pick up and throw the boat they 'missed'.....err...'hid from'. I'm not even buying that they spent the night in shark infested water.

I don't know how the laws are in Australia, but if they received a penny and I owned the boat, I would sue them for defamation of character and see to it the rescue crew were compensated for their efforts.
