Thread: Without SCI Would you ever dive with Sharks, cage or otherwise??

  1. #1

    Without SCI Would you ever dive with Sharks, cage or otherwise??

    Forgetting your SCI for a minute, would you ever dive with sharks, in a cage or otherwise?
    Its one of the first things, I'll do post-cure of course

    Random Q I know!

    Yeah, I'd consider it if the situation were pretty safe.

    I think the whole point is the danger.

    You can dive with sharks even with a SCI...

    Nobody said you couldn't

    Being a pretty unlikely thing to do anyway I would think it even more unlikely with an SCI hence the title. I also know for a fact that many 'companies' who offer this activity wouldn't even entertain it, especially higher levels.

    Rollin lol they just fascinate me too but I think it'd be such an experience!

    Keps - i'll persuade you one day chick

    Haha Leif lmao, I'd charm the male ones with that rose you see, as for the females ........ yikes

    most definately YES!!! i've held a certification since '92 and never went on a shark dive... hmmm.

    cage or no cage, the dives are safe and look very exciting..

    here in the states, as long as a disabled person completes the course with 2 dive buddies instead of 1, i wouldn't think that they would have a problem.. of course they can still say no. i would think that the line would be drawn at C5.. the occassional C4 with decent arm movement may squeak by..

    Cool

    While I would consider it (and would do it in a heartbeat on a good enough bet), there are many other marine/aquatic animals I find more compelling and would spend time with before sharks. Whales and orca, for instance. I'd rather spend an afternoon studying venomous creatures up close than share space with such basically dull (sorry, Cherry) creatures as sharks.

    Cherrylips, while it's cute to imagine you "charming" sharks with your rose, the reality is that they see most everything as food/not-food and a red dot would certainly not remove you from their menu.
