I've always wanted to swim with sharks. fark dolphins. I just want to get some kind of high tech chain mail wet suit, a good support team to pull me out if things get nippy, and go cruising with some black tips.

So, in other words, what you're after is the feel of doing something extremely dangerous, but of course without the part where there's actually any danger.

I swam with sharks in Hawa'ii last March. It was really a great experience. They are such graceful and surprisingly friendly animals.

I've found them to be very similar to dogs. Friendly and inquisitive. Granted, while a dog might sniff your crotch, a shark will bite it clean off.

I have no interest in being cooped up inside a cage like most people who "swim" with sharks. I want to actually be alongside them.

Yes, subby, but when do sharks open their male ?

You know, blacktip reef sharks are not that dangerous, and whitetips are positively near-harmless. Can you scuba? Get a license and go to one of the places where sharks hang out. Like off south Florida, or the Bahamas, or if you have more money places like Palau and Fiji. All no cage. Divers love sharks, people go all over to dive with them. I myself have seen two snorkeling. I expect to see more once I figure out where they're living. I went to go see some at one place where a few are supposed to live here but the water was too murky that day to see much of anything (did see a turtle, though).

Really, it's not impossible. You don't need a cage or chainmail for reef sharks.

Sharks are the giant pandas of ocean conservation - "charismatic megafauna" as they say.

Too bad you didn't learn how to spell the name of the state while you were there.

They stay on their side of the beach, we stay on ours... just like the fence around the Bull...

What insurance company do sharks have?

Mutual of Omaha?


CSB:  years ago, driving home from work, and I hit a deer.  Called the insurance company.  Woman says, "did you call the police?"
Me: "for what?"
Woman on phone: "To have them file a police report."
Me: "I didn't realize that deer had Mutual of Omaha insurance."
Woman on phone:  "That's not funny sir."

You have a couple of choices. Stewarts Cove in Nassau. Armor, sharks, handlers. Or if you are an experienced diver i.e. mixed gas, deco dives, I got a guy in Florida that I go out with some times. He goes out to international waters because it is illegal to feed sharks in Florida State Waters while scuba diving. Some fish will be shot with spear guns to get the sharks wired up. You stay in a group close together to appear like a massive something or other to the sharks. You'll see Hammerheads, Tigers, Lemons, Reefies, Bulls.......all depending on time of year etc. No cages, no armor though.

As my buddy has said for a decade: "Someday before I die, I'd like to fight a shark unarmed. But only on my home turf.  I'm sure he says the same thing about me.  Pussy."
