    Great White Shark Cage Diving

    ... a very good sense of smell.

    People who wanted to experience seeing the sharks up close were suited up with wetsuits, shoes, goggles and 20 kg weights around their waist.

    A special steel cage floats on the surface of the water beside the boat. Eight divers, like us, can enter the water in the cage from the top and stand on a bar with heads above the water. At a given signal, we took a big breathe and sunk to the bottom of the 2 m cage and tucked our ...

    ... part, by far! We sat on the lower deck by the back, BAD idea! We got soaked! My hands were sore by the time the anchor dropped from holding on so tight to the boat and Jax. We didn't realize that they started chumming even before they dropped anchor (best sound I had heard all day). Everybody got suited up and it wasn't long until a shark arrived! Time to jump in the cage, well not me! I had no intentions of getting in the water. I have no regrets. I ...

    ... strapped lead-like weights to our waists, goggles on, and we were ready to climb in. The cage was made up of a long frame which could fit 8 in a row and we'd been instructed to hold on to the top, and keep our hands and feet inside. The top part for our heads while the sharks weren't close to the cage was kept afloat with a row of buoys. It was a little cold getting in but I was surprised how well the wet suits worked. It was only your hands that got ...

    6am. Cold. Windy. I feel sick. I'm scared. I'm excited. Today is shark diving, clearly. Yep, at 6:15 I was picked up to start the 3 hour journey to Gaansbaai, shark hotspot back down the coast. The journey was ok. I took my anti sickness tablets in preparation for the boat but these seemed to make me feel nauseous. It mentioned it may have this affect on an empty stomach and so when we stopped to stretch our legs I grabbed a pack of hot cross buns. These did the trick and I ...

    ... a shark body was pressed up against the bars and his lashing tail was shaking the cage, though, panic set in. I worried (completely unnecessarily) about having some rogue body part sticking outside of the cage. It was a total thrill, though, and utterly awesome to get so close to the great white shark.

    As we dried off and started to warm up in the sun (fortunately, it was a warm, sunny day), the boat headed back to Gansbaai, where hot drinks and lasagna awaited us. ...
