“Don’t flail your arms when you’re near the sharks,” warned the instructor.

Steve Cronin, a longtime scuba diver, had never swum near sharks before. But his girlfriend figured a ticket into one of the world’s largest aquariums–one that happened to be filled with Tiger Sharks– would make a fine birthday gift.

“I clung onto a rock for dear life,” recalls Steve, “while these amazing beings slowly drifted by, barely an arm’s length away. We looked each other in the eye. There are virtually no other places in the world where you can see so many giant fish in close proximity.” Steve’s girlfriend paid $162, so he could swim with those massive jaws.

Most people, I’m guessing, wouldn’t want to swim with giant sharks. But that’s not the point.
