Anyone on ETAK Scuba dives? Im planning on getting my certification soon.

Where should I take the course?

Good places to dive in East Texas?

I don't know but I'm interested in the same thing. Let me know what you come up with. I've been snorkeling but that just didn't cut it for me. My goal is to one day sit in the metal cage watching Great White Sharks. I would also like to hand feed sharks on a reef.

Good news is if you ever get convicted of some kind of crime we have evidence to get you an insanity plea deal...

I really can't imagine any better experience. I've always had a fascination with sharks, especially Great Whites.



Looks like great fun to me!

Looks like I'm on my own. Smile My wife won't do it either. My daughter inherited my love for sharks so maybe she'll go with me one day.

Wow! That dude is brave. I don't think I could do that. Cage or boat I'd be ok with. That shark probably thinks he's a big remora.
