We’re given a full briefing about the incredible conservation work that the organization is doing, about the Great White shark, and what we’re to expect in the waters.
Once we get the go-ahead from the captain and everyone is ready with their swim suits, we make our way out of the Great White House.
The boat ride out to towards Dyer Island and the dive spot is a quick 20 minutes but a thrill of a lifetime from where we were sitting. They give us waterproof jackets for a reason.
As part of the first group to go in, we suit up with the help of the crew. We very much appreciated the dry and not-so-smelly wetsuits. This is a full wetsuit including hood and mask.
We take a deep breath of air and drop into the water to see if we can catch a glimpse. It’s a Copper shark! I completely lose track of time at this point.
