In two weeks I am going cage diving off the Farallons in San Francisco where all of the Great Whites go to eat the seals.


Hope I return!

What will you be wearing? A neapolitan wetsuit?

Cool! Something I've always thought of doing. I'm not sure I'd have the nerve, though. Good luck and be safe. Remember, the 15 foot Great White is more afraid of you than you are of it.

Some things are just a bad idea. Btw, are you anywhere near a 38 or a size 9?


In all seriousness, get some good pictures.

Sounds awesome. I would love to do something like this although I'd probably be scared shitless. Seeing the "flying" great whites at Seal Island in South Africa would be amazing too.

Well as long as you were wearing a wetsuit, your being scared shitless probably wouldn't bother anybody
I have a friend who was dumb enough to go kayaking out off the coast of South Africa and was almost upended by a whale jumping out of the water. I am excited, I will be very freightened, but it sounds like an amazing experience.

A filmmaker friend of mine - who happens to live in SF - won a film festival award last year for a short film he made about a guy who is the last free-diving (no cage) abalone collector there off the Farallons, and his "relationship" with the Great Whites. Some scary footage. Have fun.

F'n sweet. I wish I could afford to do that. Instead I am going to be visiting the great white at the Monterey Aquarium over my Christmas trip to Cali.

ugh, the Triangle of Death heh? In addition to man-eating sharks, lest we forget the freezing water as well! Sounds like an awesome experience! Have fun!

While I do think you may want to make a will leaving any size 38R suits and 10.5 shoes to myself (
) I think that would be a bloody great thing to do. I'd do that I think if I had the chance. I'd be scared out of my wits but I would like to do it anyway. P.s. we want photos! Extra points if you manage to grab a pic of one of the real life Bruce's back of the throat!

This post prompted me to go on the Aquarium's website and read the updates about the shark. Sounds like a great exhibit.
