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!
