edited November 2007 in All Encompassing Trip
next year either october or november iam looking to book the whole boat with just friends
it leaves from san diego and 22 hours later u wind up off guadalupe island,,home to the largest concentration of great whites in the world
crystal clear water beautiful weather and great whites for 7 days (2 days travel)
cost is approx $1500-$2000

plenty of time to think about it ,,i assure u it will be one of the best experiences in ur life (p.s. beers and booze after diving each day,,not during the day) also 3 meals a day (prepared by a chef on board) included in the price as well as all the beer u want ,,booze must be brought aboard
also great tuna fishing off the boat

thanx to even flow for reminding me of this earlier this morning

    I would be interested if I was from the USA dude. Who knows, maybe if the sharks aren't there that day it'll be because they've swum up to Cornwall or some such British coast, and I can say Thank Fuck for global warming. :D

    airfare not included but everything else is
    if i was able to secure the whole boat i would hope to get alittle play from the company on the price,but i wouldnt count on that

    p.s. wetsuits must also be owned or rented
    most people who dive own wetsuits ,so thats not really brought up

    but those can be rented

    not a chance my friend,,they are interested in the tuna ,not the pit members
    the biggest element of danger is when u enter and exit the cage
    not from the sharks but from the 50-100lbs of weights attached to ur body to keep u on the bottom of the cage
    u have a few steps to take where their is only a ladder no cage or boat ,so if u were to slip in that area u could fall in and begin to sink

    they will teach u how to remove the weight belt asap in case it happened ,,nothing to worry about

    oh scary... 40000 morbidly obese christians wearing fanny packs invading europe is probably the least scariest thing since I watched an edited version of The Care Bears movie in an extremely brightly lit cinema.

    Sharks are neat and all, and shark week on the discovery channel is fun, but you wouldn't catch me going in the water with them!

    Even in a cage? I think it would be neat to be in the ocean and having one ram the cage ala Jaws. :)

    I would get in the cage if I was there and everyone put me on the spot, but I wouldn't go looking for it.
    Despite the fact that sharks generally mistake people for seals or investigate by biting, or whatever, they're still wild animals.
    And if shark week has taught me anything, it's that great white sharks are strong enough to bend cage bars ;)
    Jaws I through IV certainly didn't help matters.

    If the Habs keep playing the way they're playing, I won't even be watching hockey come the end of the season let alone forever.

    they aint ramming the cage,, the last thing they want is to injure themselves

    although on one of my dives one did get stuck underneath inbetween the 2 cages and we had to use our feet to to free him :) such fun

    You have to admit it would be cool to see a big shark coming full steam and giving the cage a headbutt. :)

    Are the sharks just there or do they chum them to the area? I am going to keep this thread in the back of my mind for future reference.

    :eek: it would be cheaper to go to South Africa :eek: Flights from 300euro, hotels maybe 40euro a night, the dive was only 150euro.

    They never told me about the dangers of jumping in with the weights on :D but I was shitting it as it was.

    To anybody who has not done this and is in two minds, just fucking do it... seriously, for me it's right up there in my top 3 also. It's a once in a lifetime thing (unless you're really rich) and I cannot cannot CANNOT recommend it enough... there aren't enough superlatives in the world to describe the feeling when a 5.5m great white just cruises past ya close enough to touch.

    they do chum ,, but the sharks are never too far away

    within 5 minutes of chumming they arrive

    the best is when 2 or 3 come at once and everywhere u turn u see 1 !!!

    the rush is amazing

    they would swim directly at the cage but turn away a few feet from it
    once they realized it wasnt anything exciting lol

    Yep it really is amazing... there are trips you can do, if you pay enough, where you can work with them in catching and tagging the great whites and if they think you're competent enough, you can swim with them :eek: . Can you imagine how intense that would be? :eek:

    Visibility was only a couple of yards when I was there but that's cos it may have been the wrong time of the year... it was autumn and raining and windy, but apparently visibility is much better at other times of the year.

    that tagging and free swimming with them is awesome
    i would love that :)

    now imaging being in the cage and and having visibility as far as the eye can see !!! pretty cool

    Of course it would be pretty cool :) but the lack of visibility didn't take anything away from the experience at ALL. If you're gonna see great whites for the first time, I don't think location and surroundings or anything else combine to make it even better or worse for that matter... it's still gonna be one of the best things you ever do :)
