Shark Week in South Africa

I finally have the pictures!

So, we were in Shark Alley where they film Shark Week on the Discovery Channel…which means it was awesome.  We had really close encounters with Great Whites that took my breath away.  The water was freezing but it was absolutely worth it.

The cage is attached to the boat and fits 8 people at a time.  The boat is very rocky since the waves are huge here, so a lot of people got sea sick while waiting to dive.  These pictures are from my underwater disposable camera so not the best quality. This excursion was amazing, definitely worth every penny.
