I've done a cage dive with crocodiles before in Darwin, and I got past my fears and did an introductory course to scuba diving in Fiji. But I honestly don't think I could ever do this. I get freaked out if I see a shark on TV or a dark shape in a swimming pool. I don't know if this would help me face my fears, or just make it worse.
Have you actually been on one of the shark dives? My parents have been shark diving without a cage in Fiji, but not with Great Whites. They're such magnificent and terrifying creatures. I would love to one day get the courage to do something like this.
Would love to hear from anyone who has done one of these dives before, or who is considering one.
Oh wow! I've never heard of crocodile cage diving before, that'd be amazing.
No unfortunately I haven't done this myself but I think I would be okay with it, I find myself way more scared of sting rays.
I did go on a shark snorkel in Phuket but I didn't actually see any... Does that count? Haha.
If you work up the courage to do it yourself let me know how it is, I'll have to save up some cash and hopefully get to go myself.

Id love to swim with sharks. They do it at Coffs Harbour. I think the cage is a great way to do it though. It provides you with safety as well as closeness.
I did a little reading recently and humans arent really shark food. Sharks would rather eat something else.
