YOU'VE HEARD ABOUT IT, you've seen the pictures, and you've reveled at the stories. Here's your chance to OWN it in 2019!

WHEN: Oct 21 (Mon) @ 7 pm - Oct 26 (Sat) @ 3-7 pm 2019 (Times may be slightly amended as we get closer.)

RESERVATIONS: Simply RSVP here (first) then pay the $400 deposit via the Paypal interface that pops up. (Safe and secure. I've used it for years)

DIVING DAYS ON-SITE: 2 and 3/4 days

I (Bill) have done this three times before and believe me, it has to be experienced to fully understand the awe, respect, and thrills you will feel when these large beauties cruise right up to, and by, your cage.

BERTHING: Berthing allocations will be parsed based on order of signup. The price is SO FAR below regular (or even discounted) price, that I'm simply going to reward people in the order of their signup. Limited load, so there'll be plenty of room!

FOOD: All meals included. The Horizon has great fare. If you have special food requests (vegan, etc) please let them know well ahead of time and they'll be happy to accommodate you.

HOWZIT WORK?

• We go into the two cages (housing 8 divers at a time) in shifts lasting (usually) 45 min each. As long as the sharks are running by, we'll have y'all in the water. When you're not in the water you're either lounging around the boat or capturing amazing topside footage of the GWSs as they cruise by. (Go Pros on a stick tend to work well for uw shots while up on the boat.)

• No scuba gear needed. We'll be breathing off hookah hoses. Boat crew will rig you with weight harnesses to keep you down within the cages.

• You need to bring: 1)Wetsuit/drysuit 2)Mask 3)Your thirst for adventure!
