Swim with the Sharks!

Recommended Posts

My mother in law said she read an article in the Greensboro NC newspaper about the Ga aquarium and a program where you get to dive the big tank. I could not find the article on line or I would have posted it but I did find a page dedicated to it at the Ga Aquariums web site. It's a little pricey but they have a separate price chart for scuba or just a swim. How many chances do you get to swim with a whale shark guaranteed. Check it out http://www.georgiaaquarium.org/swimOrDive/index.aspx

I hear that there look at the sharks is even cheaper and dryer.

Funny Doc, I did the tour already and have seen them, have also seen them in the wild but never got close enough to get in the water with them. There is just something about seeing something like that from under the water. I don't know what it is but it increases the experience ten fold.

When I used to live down in central Florida, you could dive the big tank @ Disney (Epcot). I forget the name of that attraction, but it's a great experience and very expensive. Not surprising....after all, it's Disney.

I think it would be awesome to swim with the whale sharks. That's probably the only critter Disney doesn't have.

I always wanted to dive the schools of hammer heads down south.

Heather, I always wanted to do that dive as well. I think that would be the peak of my diving career. Can't remember where that was though but I can never see too much video of it.

Personally, I prefer diving into a nice Porterhouse Steak, medium rare with,asparagus, baked potatoe, sour cream and chives! :lol:

You will never know what you have missed all these years till you take the plunge. There is no way for a diver to explain it to a non-diver. You can talk about it till you are blue in the face and they just won't understand. As soon as they come up from that first dive with that smile on their face they say "I get it".

Living Seas. And last time I checked, you can still do this. Its on my to-do list next time we take a vacation down there. Especially now that I've gotten my son scuba qual'd.
