Back on Labor Day, I went Great White Cage diving in Guadalupe Island, Mexico with Shark Divers. Here are a couple of pics from the trip:

Nice crisp shots in the album. Not so sure I'd be into that though. Maybe when I was younger but now I'm learning to just enjoy the fact I still feel fit enough to dive.

But you still need to pay for the trip & diving. I'd much rather just do some exploring to see the sights. I know there's a great big world out there waiting for me to do that but my budget keeps taking me back to Cozumel where my wife (non swimmer) & I have lots of friends.

were the sharks aggressive at all? i'm guessing the boat drew them closer with chum, but past that, i didn't know if it was as simple as hopping into the water in a cage (although i'm sure that is still a bit of an adrenaline rush)

I don't find them aggressive..yes they are going for the bait. Last year, when I was in a cage there was a sea lion swimming around and two sharks just swimming around and they did not attack it. Animals eat only when they are hungry. Not for pleasure like us humans lol.

I think I'd be too scared to do that! Is it expensive to do?
