World’s best shark dive spots

Tiger Shark and diver, Northern BahamasShark diving is not just about watching sharks silently swimming around your cage. It is acutally about the adrenaline pumping in your veins and the fear eating your thoughts.

Shark diving is something so unique that should be done at least once in a lifetime. I am being slightly hypocritical right now, as I don’t think I would ever have the courage to dive in waters infested with sharks!

Anyway, I did hear that the moment you jump in the cage and you go underwater the only thing you are focused on is the shark(s), so you don’t really have time to think and/or overthink about your fears. It’s just you and the huge carnivore going in circles around you.

Shark diving could be done in different ways. Of course it all depends on the kind of shark you are swimming with. If you are surrounded by great whites, most of the time (99.9% of the time) you are in a cage. If you want to see whale sharks, then you don’t need to be locked up in a cage, but you can swim with them and touch them.

Either way, diving with sharks is something incredibly unique!
