I’ve wanted to scuba dive with sharks ever since I qualified as a PADI diver, back in 1994. I find them fascinating rather than scary. (I leave you to decide what that says about me.)

Standing underwater in a cage beside a boat, wearing a head-to-toe wetsuit and breathing from a regulator, was the realization of a dream. Big sharks, close up, and no real danger? It was ace, even though the South Atlantic is really really cold in April.

Most of the video I shot was pretty bad, though. I need to go back and do this again.
