I was determined to get in fast but In a classic case of ''You muppett Becca" I put the wet-suit on back to front and missed the first tank. I was so worried that that one shark was all we'd see but they just kept arriving. Being in the cage was surreal, it was actually much more flimsy that I'd imagined but as the expert said - the sharks ...
