Dive was completed at Oceanworld Manly in Sydney. It was a 30 minute dive with sharks, giant stingrays and huge Sea turtles. Brilliant, although next time will have to have a real shark dive in a cage – I’m thinking south Africa! 4 years ago
Need to retake my scuba course and get certified. I guess I just have a thing for confronting fears. I don`t like deep water or the scary creatures that can reside in it. I guess the theory is that if I can make it through a dive with something that could rip me to pieces, I should be okay the next time my foot touches a weed at the lake. 4 years ago
There’s an area in east Africa where they have lots of Great whites and hey let you get in a cage. that would be great! 5 years ago

Aug 2008 Did first taster diving session and enjoyed it 5 years ago
I was suppose to snorkel with them but it was a red tide and to hard to see when snorkeling so we just got in the water and swam with them. These were leopard sharks off the coast of San Diego at La Jolla beach. These things were amazing. Very shy never got closer than a foot away so I never got to touch one, but incredible just the same. I have to say standing in the ocean breathing the fresh crisp air, enjoying the warmth of the sun hugging my shoulders as the sea lions on the rocks 100 yards away are barking and they sea gulls are crying and looking around at 35 to 40 of these gentle creatures swimming in the water around you has got to be one of the most spiritual moments I have ever had. Next on the list…the most misunderstood the Great White. 5 years ago
I love sharks and have always wanted to dive with them. I am certified to dive…just need to go where I can accomplish this. 6 years ago
Dived with reef sharks in Fiji. It was awesome to see them swimming around in the distance. 6 years ago
Some dives just 2 or 3 present. Other times there were 50-70 hammerheads hovering overhead.
It’s pretty exciting. And it helps you break thru some of the myths of what’s dangerous and what’s not.
Of course, you always have to treat the sea and it’s creatures with mortal respect. There are tiny creatures like coneshells and sea snakes that can kill you faster than a great white shark. 6 years ago
