1/25/2003: I went on a boat trip to see great white sharks. There was a bit of chumming of the water, and a soup shark's head was dragged around in the water. When the great white shark turned up, everyone would jump into the (cold) water in a cage to get the close up view as the shark was led past the cage. Pretty cheesy, really, but it was cool to see a 15 foot long shark all scratched up by the seals that it had been eating.
