For some time I have had an ambition to dive with sharks. Can you help me to achieve this ambition in 2009??

I am PADI open water certified with 12 dives in a variety of locations. I hope to dive with sharks in February/March 2009 perhaps even as a 30th birthday treat! Im not thinking of petting great whites here, and hate the idea of cage diving. Ideally Id like to see some smaller sharks in their natural habitat in fairly easy diving conditions. I am sure it would be an amazing experience.

I understand that the water temp (and time of year) can have a big impact on the likelihood of seeing any sharks. It would be great to go somewhere where there are guaranteed shark sightings at that time of year and I woiuld be very grateful for any suggestions of locations and local operators that you can offer.

Ideally I'd like to travel to somewhere in the carribean without breaking the bank :-)

Rob and the guys at Blue Planet Aquarium are very knowledgeable on sharks. So you will not only have a change to get within a couple of feet of a shark, but you can learn about them too.
I have done this twice now, once as the evening "dive only" session and once as the "All Day" session when you learn about sharks and can qualify for a PADI specialty. Both were great experiences.
If you want to dive with sharks in open water, the venues open to you are only limited by the amount of money you want to spend.
I still fancy a trip to Stuart Cove's in the Bahamas but that will have to wait a while.
