My daughter wanted to swim with sharks, and my wife heard about Sea Base from someone in passing. We looked in to it, and decided this would be a great Christmas experience. My daughter and I went out the day after Christmas, hoping to snorkel with the sharks. It was so cold that the sharks stayed on the bottom, and there was no way we could free dive deep enough to see them, so we waited for the scuba experience. I asked her if she was more excited about scuba diving or being with the sharks, and it was about equal. Same for me. It was worth the wait.
The nurse sharks tend to stay in the same place, which is usually by a warm water outlet. This is a video of a nurse shark swimming passed us. That was unexpected and very cool.
It was a great experience, and it was nice to spend the day with my daughter. Experiences are so much better than things.
