    ... toll. Therese is hanging over the side of the boat feeling ill and as a good friend, I try to go over to support her. However, as usual, plans rarely go as planned. Instead of comforting her, I begin to violently throw up over the side of the boat, which triggers Therese to do the same. She will never have orange juice again. By the end of the trip 17 out of 18 of us were sick. It was an awesome sight. At least we weren't as bad as our new friend George, pretty sure he ...

    ... briefing during which I clocked a poster with a list of the cage diving rules including "No hands outside the cage or touching of the sharks". No kidding! And no thanks...!!!

    The team introduced themselves, including the very important Dirum the chum master, and Gladys the foam Sea Lion decoy, and we watched a video of where we were going and what will happen and they had to keep reiterating that there is always the possibility of a non sighting ...

It was awesome to see both underwater and above water. Great whites are really big and powerful (or, if you prefer, UNCHALLENGED MASTERS OF ALL THEY SURVEY). I didn't think I would be that scared, and I wasn't when they swam by the ...

    ... we boarded the boat whereupon Ken advised everyone to stay inside. He made 4 announcements warning people not to go out on the front deck because they would get seriously wet. Despite this, a whole group of in appropriately dressed clowns insisted they would be alright. We set sail and as we turned out of the harbour, we hit our 1st wave with a thud and sea water covered the whole boat causing the drenched clowns to run for cover. The boat ...

    ... that I wasn’t going to go back in. And blimming hell am I glad I did. There were 2 sharks swimming around at this point, the 4m and a maybe 2.5m one, both of which kept breaching the water a lot and also coming close to the cage.

    The last tuna head was out and everyone was on the boat, and the 4m one went for it, breaching about 2 thirds of its body and holding onto the bait whilst the skipper pulled it towards the boat, whilst it thrashed ...
