    Wow, I've always wanted to do that, but as I get older my mind is changing. I think I'll just leave it to you and I'll sit here nice and cosy and look at your great shots!

    Now THAT looks like fun!

    Shame they didn't allow you to use a regulator so you could breath underwater ;)

    Although I have never swam with a great white, I have swam with other sharks.

    They are very, very cool creatures...

    Underwater, everything looks 25 percent closer than it really is (and therefore bigger), and let me tell you a little 5 foot reef shark looks about 25 feet long for a minute or two if you turn around and it is right behind you!

    we could have but there was no real reason for it. You are at the top of the water in the cage, when the shark comes by they tell you to go down. The water is pretty cloudy so you cant see that far away so i was easily able to see the sharks the whole time they were visable just by holding my breath. I took these with a nikon point and shoot that ended up leaking. the next time I will have a proper housing for my D90:thumbup:
