Having lived all my life inland, I remember all too vividly my reaction to a huge billboard on the side of the main road advertising shark cage diving, shortly after relocating to the South Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. It was simply this – “Whatever idiot is stupid enough to get into the deep blue sea with sharks in it, cage or not, deserves to be eaten!” – and that remained my firm sentiment for the next year and a half. To cut a long story short, I gradually got exposed to the world of diving through a friend, and finally was offered the opportunity to redesign Aqua Planet’s website, and the payment would be… a dive course or two! Now the only thing that made me actually take this offer seriously was that I knew that my wife had always wanted to dive. I on the other hand was still nothing short of petrified! Happy wife, happy life as they say, so I decided to take the plunge and well, the rest is history!
