Shark Alley, Cape Town, South Africa

So what do you do when you are at the southern-most point on the African Continent and you’ve seen everything else there is to see there?  You get on a boat, go 25 miles out to sea and jump in the ocean with Great White Sharks.  That’s what you do!

Me and the rest of the Northrise Media Collection swallowed a sea-sickness tablet (well…some of us did), jumped on a boat out to Shark Alley, donned wetsuits and goggles, and jumped into the 48-degree ocean to see Great White Sharks.   What an exhilarating experience!

The people at Marine Dynamics do a fantastic job getting you prepared and out to Shark Alley.  Allison Towner the resident Marine Biologist, and her crew gave us a short safety briefing and a quick lesson on Great White Sharks.  Basically, they are big, with big teeth and like to bite… so don’t touch them.

Luckily no one in our crew chummed the fish from the side of the boat and we all created an amazing memory together that will undoubtedly last a lifetime.
