Well I’ve been saying I wanted to do it for a while now so I bit the bullet and went for it. Can't believe a year ago you wouldn't have got me to swim in the sea in England, never mind jump in the water with a Great White.
It was a fantastic experience and I definitely want to do it again. Was even talking to the guy about working with the sharks as a volunteer.
Be serious bragging rights in the pub,
"So what do you do for a living?"
"Oh I work with great white sharks".
Wasn't really that nervous until the guy told us to get the wet suits on and I took a look at the flimsy cage that we had to get in. I wouldn't have thought it would be safe enough to keep a budgie in but maybe that’s part of the experience. The sharks we got weren’t all that big according to the guy but they seemed big enough to me. Especially when a 3 meter male, bumped the cage less than a foot in front of me.
I took some pictures but I’ll put some more on later when they send me the
DVD they did of the trip.
Still you’ll get the idea.
