    I was just seeing what kind of reaction that would get. Honestly, as fascinated as I am with those creatures, I'm just gonna respect their place and mine. I think of it like this. If I get home, and there's a Great White sitting on my couch, reading my mail, I'm gonna be upset. I just stay off the Great White's couch.

    I love this sort of stuff, but it has been years since I have been diving. I have all of the equipment, but it is going on 20 years old now. I haven't had my regulator services, but I think I have kept my tank certification (or whatever it is) up to date.

    HOWEVER, I could never do a long boat trip. I would be throwing up the entire time, or so drugged to keep from throwing up that it wouldn't be fun. I was on a dive trip off of the coast of Cozumel many years ago and got sick on the short boat trip there. I went down and got sicker and got even sicker as I was coming up. Then I threw up as I reached the surface. I threw up in the Caribbean - lucky there wasn't any sharks around. They probably would have liked it as well as chum!

    I can see me barfing in the shark cage (and in my regulator since I would be under water). I guess the puke would be coming out the regulator and the sharks would be waiting patiently for their little snackie???

    Hah - this really gross - sorry.

    wooo lol that could be a problem lol

    another good thing with this trip is that u dont have to be certified because the air is left on board,,u do use a regulator but the air is on board
    plus ur only 10 ft down

    that cozumel is a great place to dive,,sorry u threw up the whole time

    I wondered about the certification. They get a lot more business if no certification required. I wonder how many people panic once they get in the cage and underwater. I'm sure some people are nervous about being underwater and using the regulator for the first time, plus a little claustrophobia being in the cage, and then with great whites swimming all around...... ha...... I wonder what happens if people panic. Is there a panic button?

    :o yep, well my first (and only) dive was terrifying. Well I don't have a PADI cert so it was goggles only :D and they tell ya when the shark's coming and ya take a deep breath and go under. But it was GETTING into the cage (having to jump from the boat into the cage that's not much wider than the average person having seen all the sharks swimming around beforehand :eek: ) that scared the shit out of me... by the time I got out I was like complete jelly, cos every time the cage banged against the boat I'd think it was a shark coming :D

    well we were there 4 days

    so we made 5-6 dives per day = 20-24 dives
    \
    anyway the first 2 days everybody was ready for every dive

    as the trip went on people started skipping a dive here and there

    wheter they were fishing or sunning

    point being the last 2 days me and my bro made quite a few dives by ourselves

    but if people wanted to go then they maxed out at 4 per cage

    i did make an early dive on my 2nd day b4 anybody else was up

    i was up early fishing and i caught a big tuna and the mate was like
    u wanna eat it or use it ? im like huh ?
    so he was like get ur suit on and we'll tie this bad boy up and throw him overboard for breakfast lol that was awesome alone watching a big tuna get torn up

    obviously ur staying on a boat , because only the mexican navy
    and a few fisherman are allowed on the island

    well this is peak season so expect quite a few shark boats

    and p.s. dont go jumping in the water :) enjoy

    I'd like to dive with sharks at some point in my life, but it's not tops on my to do list. I'd rather skydive and try some other adventurous things first.

    Anyhoo, saw this on live science and wanted to share.

    #4 - Great White Shark
    Blood in the water can excite these sharks into a feeding frenzy, where they'll use all 3,000 of their teeth to bite anything that moves.

    22 hours there and 22 back :)

    if u dont love these creatures this isnt for you

    yes its a big boat i dont know exact size but big enough to hold 25 people or so plus all the equipments

    2 showers 4 bathrooms 6 or 7 rooms to sleep in
    (which by the way is very small )


    normally i dont get seasick but we do have to cross the pacific ocean so i suggest taking meds just in case
    also if ur prone to seasickness this trip isnt for you lol
