Coming face-to-face with a great white shark (from the safety of a shark cage, of course) is something that’s been on my to-do list for some time. Now I’m having second thoughts.
Why, you ask? Well, when I mentioned the idea to my friend Jim McDonough (an avid northern California surfer who regularly braves shark-infested waters when he’s not doing his web development/marketing thing) he turned me onto this video. Seems these two guys got a little more out of their shark-diving trip off the coast of Mexico’s Baja peninsula than they bargained for. Talk about close encounters!
Does this mean I’m crossing this off my list of future extraordinary experiences? Nah. But I do believe I’ll make sure my life and disability insurance premiums (“whatdaya mean being bitten in half isn’t covered?”) are paid up beforehand!
