... the cage. Not in the cage though OH WAIT OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT THERE IS A SHARK WEDGED BETWEEN MY END OF THE CAGE AND THE BOAT. luckily it was only there for 4 seconds or so but it was very splashy and scary and they have a rule about not peeing in the wetsuit and and and and :|. We were in the cage for about 15 minutes but couldn't stay any longer because we needed to share the time with the others and also it was BLOOMING FREEZING. The wetsuits were a godsend but couldn't ...

Great White Shark Cage Diving- Ganbaai, Cape Town

The company we used was Marine Dynamics- they do ...

We anchored down, and the crew started throwing chum in the water. They also had tuna heads on bobbers that they threw out. Once sharks started coming we took turns getting into the cage. A crew member would lure them close with the tuna heads. At one point the shark jumped out of ...

... arriving the first shark arrives and the boys race downstairs to get ready. (I have never seen wet-suits go on that fast). I was determined to get in fast but In a classic case of ''You muppett Becca" I put the wet-suit on back to front and missed the first tank. I was so worried that that one shark was all we'd see but they just kept arriving. Being in the cage was surreal, it was actually much more flimsy that I'd imagined but as the expert said - the sharks ...
