My name is Elyse Frankcom and I work as a professional snorkelling guide on an Eco-tour for swimming with wild dolphins.
Safety is a big issue of course as we take many passengers into the ocean! We use your Shark Shields in regard to deter sharks while working!
I did not have my unit turned on while free diving with dolphins and was recently attacked by a 3 metre Great White Shark! My first reaction was to punch and then try pushing the shark away while a very brave passenger pulled the tail! I remembered my Shark Shield wasn't on so I immediately turned it on and the shark dropped me and swam away as quick as it came!
I believe that if I didn't turn the Shark Shield on, I would not be alive today! The Shark Shield saved my life as well as everyone around me in the water. Never again will I enter the water without my unit turned on!
