As I step into the Indian Ocean, the cold water saturates my wetsuit and sends a chill rushing over my body. I climb down the boat’s ladder, entering the cage and take my place next to the four other people who are anxiously waiting for the experiences to begin. Excitement begins to take over. I have been wanting to cage dive with Great White Sharks since I was ten years old, and now I was moments away. The instructor yells for us to drop down into the water. No sooner do I grab the metal bar, we down and see the beautiful, four meters (approx 13 ft long) beast swimming towards me. With nothing but three feet between us, the shark opens his huge jaws and chomps down on the fake seal the instructor used to lure it in. I watch the animal disappear into the dark, endless sea and pull myself out of the water. As oxygen fills my lungs, I excitedly yell out in excitement, “That was awesome!” As we’re driving back to shore, I realize that cage diving with Great Whites was the last thing I had left to check off my bucket list. At twenty years old, I had just successfully completed all of my dreams. I smile to myself, pleasantly pleased with my accomplishment.
