Shark Week was on last week so what better time to go travel the world and swim with sharks? It is the best way to see sharks up-close and personal in their own habitat. You see people doing it on Shark Week, but experienced divers can also have the chance to swim with sharks. Here are some of the best spots to go shark cage diving!
Guadalupe Island, Mexico
Guadalupe Island in Mexico is one of the top viewing spots for great white sharks. In the past 12 years or so, it has become a really popular spot for shark divers. The warm and crystal-clear water gives divers an enjoyable experience. The water is so clear that the visibility is incredible. It is a beautiful and pleasant spot to go diving with great white sharks. Guadalupe Island is also a prime spot for big-game fishing.
Neptune Islands, South Australia
Neptune Islands in South Australia is another prime spot to see great white sharks. The area has a large population of sea lions so great whites are hunting the waters year round. The water is very clean and clear, so the visibility is great just like at Guadalupe Island. It is a very beautiful area and it is home to an ideal backdrop for photos and along with viewing great whites.
Shark Reef Aquarium at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas
Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada is home to a 1.3 million gallon shark aquarium. Visitors can get an up-close view of several types of shark species like the sandtiger shark, the sandbar shark, the white tip reef shark and a lot more underwater wildlife.
