I got really lucky. He jumped by me and scared me then I just started snapping in his general direction, never expected to get a shot. I definitely recommend a waterproof camera. If you have a chance to get something that can do video and capture images from it that's even better. We had a huge school of jacks swim under us that could have been an awesome shot too. Just too scared too hold my iPhone under water without a float on it. You never know what's gonna happen out there.
