    ... 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 ...

    ... 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 ...
