Have your say

Back in the UK I swore I would never go on a shark cage diving tour.

But it’s been a dream of my partner Matt’s for such a long time that I agreed to go on the boat with him – despite being ill on the same boat the day before. Now that’s love!

The area we were in has the largest population of great white sharks in the world, so I decided to be a team player and go with him.

My one and only fear (other than belly buttons – really) is great white sharks. So I hope you’ll be very proud of me when I tell you that I actually did the cage dive too! Not once, but twice.

It was amazing and not at all scary. We saw around 15 sharks that day and some even rose above the surface so we got a good look at their jaws.

Amazing.
