    I have a 34g that should be more than the minimum tank size right?

    Seriously though, is that not the biggest tagged great white, or am I thinking of a different one? That one probably eats small boats.

    She is estimated to be 50 years old, 20 feet long and as wide as an elephant. She is also expecting. To stand on that cage or in that cage while she swam by would be a chance of life time. I would much rather be in the cage or on the cage then in a boat when she happened by.

    Too think they all have the potential to reach that size, but so many are cut short by finning.

    The diver on the top of the cage reaches out and touches Deep Blue, what a rush. You can see that diver has a drop hole so that if Deep Blue gets too animated he can just drop down into the cage.

    I did a cage dive off Channel Islands. Those sharks wanted nothing to do with me, biggest shark was only 9 ft. Every shark I have seen diving saw me and took off. I did see a big Tiger once and got out of the water. In the Blue Hole off Belize the Bull sharks just circle you but it's like they are asleep.

    There are a couple Great While cage dive I would love to mark off the bucket list.
