    Great White Shark Cage Diving

    ... a bar to help hold us down while we observed sharks that were enticed by dead fish on a rope to come close to the cage.

    The sharks can't enter the cage but we had to be careful that we didn't point by putting our arms outside of the cage! The sharks' tails and fins come within inches of the bars.

    They swim by pretty quickly and we would come up for air after they went by. The dive masters would call out, Left, Middle or Right and Down, down, ...

    ... just getting on the boat.
    Faith & Chad get in with no hesitation. I honestly had very little fear for their safety. They were excited as much as scared. Again it wasn't long until a shark came back. RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM! Faith pops out of the water with a "wholly ****". From there it was more sharks and seagulls. Then there were some whales off in the distance, you could see their "footprints" in the water. Then Hunter turns to me and says "I want to ...

    ... that looked hollow. The visibility may have been poor but there was definitely no need for it to be any better. You were looking through the cage which had a long open viewing panel and all of a sudden this huge beast was right in front of you showing it's giant teeth as it goes for the bait.

    This was one hell of an experience and I loved every second. I could never quite believe I was right next to these sharks that we are all so afraid of ...

    ... chronologically but the interest really started to grow then. I joined the 2nd group and got loaded into a 7mm wetsuit. Those who knew fat me will know I'm not the biggest fan of wetsuits... I decided to man up and go into the cage first meaning I was on the end, so had two angles of looking at the sharks. Terrifying. We had about 4/5 different sharks coming along and getting right up to the cage. Some reaching 4m long. Phwoar. They were leaping out of the water and ...

    ... I yanked my hand away from the front of the cage, but it was awesome to be that close to the great whites mouth. After that, the diving was over and we headed back into port where we had lunch and watched the video from the day. After lunch I went to head back to the Bed and Breakfast but my car wouldn't start. SHOOT, I forgot to turn off the headlights on this little tiny hyundai and the battery was dead. I got a jump from the dive master and then was off ...
