Bimini Shark Cage Diving
Jumping in a cage surrounded by sharks for the first time is very nerve wracking even for the most adventurous person I have to admit. Bimini Shark Cage Diving is where it’s at. My first experience Shark Cage Diving was in Big Game Club Bimini with bull sharks. I was not certified to dive at the time which was ok since you can breathe into a third lung. If you are unaware, bull sharks are considered by some to be the most dangerous sharks in the world because of their aggressiveness. I highly recommend Bimini Shark Cage diving if you have the opportunity.The bull sharks at Big Game Club are considered to be the resort’s “pets”. They are often seen swimming around waiting for food to be given to them. This is me below getting ready to jump in the cage.
Since it was February the water was a little colder, but once I got in the fear and excitement started to warm me up. I had my GoPro with me attached to my favorite underwater stick, the GoPole. Then, the chum starting dropping in the water surrounding me at once. I thought to myself, “this is crazy!”. The bull sharks starting swimming up and eating the chum which then brought it many other smaller fish as well. Obviously the sharks got to the food right away. I had my GoPole sticking out of the cage, therefore I got some great shots!
The Bimini shark cage diving excursion lasted about 30 minutes. I really got into it and the time flew by so quickly. One of the sharks was pregnant as well and was very aggressive! The whole experience was truly amazing. By the end of it, I looked like I had gone through battle.
