we recently went on 2 morning shark expeditions with your team out of Simon's Town and i just had to write this note to let you know how much we enjoyed those experiences.
cage diving with great white sharks has been on my sister Sumi's bucket list for years. i cannot tell you how many times she has worked in Chris Fallows' name into a conversation...it's been a dream of hers to be able to take one of your tours. we've waited a while to be able to do this, but it was well worth the wait.
we planned our entire trip to South Africa based on the dates we could reserve for your shark expeditions...and those dates were reserved a year ago. my sister has even learned how to swim in order to prepare herself for this adventure! sometimes reality does not match your expectations, in this case our experiences surpassed anything we might have expected! i was not a "cage diver", i just wanted a chance to see these animals in the wild. i now understand why they are called Apex predators...great white sharks are truly magnificent animals, and i have come away with a greater appreciation for who they are and the role they play in the ocean's ecosystem.
your entire team is wonderful, patient, and made us feel confident that we were in good hands. we were even lucky enough to have Chris Fallows on the boat for our second day. he was incredibly kind and patient in answering all of our amateur questions, his respect for the sharks is inspiring. i thought he was awesome on TV, he is even more awesome in person :))
i wanted to share 2 photos with you...one is of your crew member Dominick (?sp) his expression is priceless! the other is a group shot of us with Chris [i'm on the far left, my sister Sumi is next to me and our friend Lorie is next to Chris]
thanks so much!
