2010 Shark Diving Report - Cage Diving at Guadalupe

For our divers 2010 has been the Trip of a Lifetime so far. Celebrated with email blasts to friends and Facebook posts to the world.

These lucky divers have met the most charismatic, studied, and filmed white sharks on the planet.

For newly minted Shark Diver Craig Reynolds, nothing but his own Great White Blog to recount his adventures this year would do:

Day 1 – CRAZY PEOPLE – When you tell people you’re going on a shark dive, you can almost guarantee that you’ll get a fairly similar reaction from most people.

“You’re crazy,” they’ll say. Well, yeah. I work in advertising, don’t I? Why do you think they have a show called Mad Men??

I mean, when you tell people you’re willing to parachute out of a perfectly good plane, they still look at you somewhat admirably, cushioning their judgment by saying something like, “oh, I could never do that.” But cage diving falls into a different category. When it comes to sharks, people have been conditioned to fear them for a long time.

I think we can all thank Stephen Spielberg for that.
