... on to a bar inside the cage. The guys on the boat shout 'down!' as a shark approaches, and you hold your breath and duck under water to see it.
It was one of the most exciting, awe inspiring things either of us has ever done! Miles better than we had expected. After the first couple of 'dives' we both got the hang of it. The shark is attracted by 'chum' and a large tuna head on a rope as bait. They come right up to the cage, ...
