My morning started very early with a 530 am pick up from my hotel to start my shark dive adventures we ventured out 2 hours from Cape Town up the coast.

We took a boat ride for about 15 minutes until we got to the spot for the diving. We were lucky and there was a shark already in the area when we got there, so we put on the wet suits quickly then I jumped into the cage.

... underwater seeking them out – and she was the one that wasn’t sure if she wanted to even do it to begin with! But after being out on the water next to Seal Island where 50,000 seals live – and smell and speak like sheep – for 3 hours we ended up seeing 7 different great white sharks, multiple times, a hammer head shark, a sun fish (which looked like a shark because if its fin), some dolphins, a lot of jelly fish, and many other fish/water creatures. It was ...
