As I was swimming with the sailfish in the shallow bay of Marsa Abu Dabbab, I managed to get really close to it. I had the fish coming straight at me, then turn about 1 metre from me and swim alongside me. As it did, I took this picture of its eye as it did so. A truly once in a lifetime experience!
