WETSUIT: O’Neill (wouldn’t recommend it since after one wear its already peeling in some spots! Linked to some cute wetsuits above) / STRIPED SWEATER: Free People (available in 4 colors – they are all so cute!)

Holy cow I swam with sharks! Everyone kept saying once you got in the water it is so relaxing and calming and I was like uh… not for me haha I was shaking the whole time. But it was so beautiful I definitely didn’t realize that you could swim so freely with sharks like that outside of a cage. Once our boat was getting close you could see the sharks in the water coming to the boat. That was so freaky because I hadn’t ever seen a shark in the wild like that before! I was really glad that Amber, Andrea, and Paige were there because I probably wouldn’t have gotten in if they weren’t holding my hands in there ha! I learned so much from our guide, Juan with One Ocean Diving. Not just about sharks but also about their relationship with humans and how important research and conservation is. It was definitely eye opening and I really want to go again.

Oh and we also saw huge whales jumping out of the water on our way over!! It is now whale watching season and I am so excited to see more of that. So amazing to watch!

Hope you all have a great week!

  13. I just love your blog! I live vicariously through you haha. All of your photos are so beautiful, I hate to ask this because i’m sure you get it all the time but what camera/Lens do you use? I just had a baby and have been looking for a really nice camera, since they are so expensive it would be nice knowing I’m making a good choice:)

  14. I’ve been looking forward to seeing this post. I assumed you were in a cage. This is one of those things I like to think I would be sooooo down for, but I’m sure right before I would be terrified!!! It must have been so scary. You go girl for getting in there!! xo

  18. Not sure if I could’ve done it! Even though I grew up by an ocean, it still freaks me out from time to time. But seeing the whales are awesome! You know they’re big from pictures, but you don’t really understand how huge and magnificent they are until you see one in person!

  19. This looks amazing!! I’ve always wanted to swim with sharks! Great whites are my favorite animal! That’s so cool that you and David did this… ?

  20. Wow! What a cool experience, I would love to do this one day! I like the fact that the sharks are free in the ocean and not caged in like the dolphins that you can swim with at some resorts. I heard they do terrible things to them 🙁 And I totally love all the underwater pics! What kind of camera equipment do you use for those??

  23. So incredible! I’m dying to swim with dolphins, but sharks intimidate me a little bit! I would definitely need a hand to hold to jump in for the first time. What a once-in-a-lifetime experience, though!

    Love seeing all your Hawaiian adventures!
