      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 ...

      ... They continued to throw the bate (the biggest Tuna head I've ever seen!) and pulled it towards the cage until they shouted "Down down down!" which was our cue to take a breath, grab the rail, pull ourselves down, lock our feet under the lower bar and just look at what you simply cannot miss - the Great White Shark coming right towards us!
      The first time I saw one it was just complete shock and the thing that stood out for me most was it's big ...

      ... horizon to focus on. Instead we went about 15 minutes out to another spot. Here they started the chum line...watery fish guts, loaded the cage into the water. And waited. Waited for about 30 minutes. I was felling very sea sick but managing to cope. We saw one small 1.5m shark in that time but it paid no interest to us. Then, suddenly, a big 3.5m bugger comes along. The first 8 jumped in the cage. I ducked out of the first load. I wanted to see the drill first. I won't go ...

      ... so I pretty much say that I got to High-Five a great white. I took a picture of this shark as well with the bait in hand and then as it was swimming away. After this event everyone was pumped and cheering because it was so awesome. About 5 minutes later another shark jumps a few feet out of the water and bites onto the bait line swimming at the cage again. This time the mouth was right in the view port where my hand was. This was the only time during the ...
