Cage Diving


Off the coast of South Africa is one of the best places to see the magnificent Great White Shark in its natural habitat. South Australia is another great place to see the Great White as there is the highest concentration of these animals in the world here. However probably the best place to cage dive with Great Whites is Guadalupe, off the west coast of Mexico. The waters are clear and warm, although you will have to spend a few days aboard a boat as the location is quite remote.

Ride a jetski

Riding a jetski is much easier than it looks. Many many seaside destinations offer the opportunity to try it out. Try and do it on a calm day however, as it's a lt less fun when the seas are choppy.
