Scratching it off the bucket list…
The countdown has begun. On September 28th I set sail from San Diego to Isla Guadalupe, a remote island off of Mexico with one of the highest seasonal concentrations of GREAT WHITE SHARKS on the planet. Yes, I will be in the water with them. And yes, the water may become slightly warmer when I lay eyes on my first shark.
It will be a five day trip, with three days worth of cage diving time. We’re using what looks like a great group called Islander-Charters . Check out the trailer for a documentrary called Island of the Great White Shark featuring our future home away from home, the Islander.
For the next three months I will be going shark crazy. I’m reading a great book called The Devils Teeth about the White Sharks off of the Farallon Islands near San Francisco just to get an idea of what to expect.
One of the great things about the trip is that we’ll have virtually unlimmited time in the cage during the three days at the island. I figured by the end of the first day I’ll have enough pictures, so I might take on a little photography project. Send me a message you want written on a board and I’ll hold it up while inside the cage and surrounded by sharks. I’ll send you the pictures when I get back. It could be a “hi mom!” or “jim’s a douchebag!” Anything you want.
