Have you ever wanted to swim with sharks or do a cage dive? When you think about where you can do this activity, you would normally think about Hawaii or Australia maybe? When we were in Hawaii we tried to do a shark dive but it was not available in Maui, you could only do it in Honolulu.  You can now cage dive here in Texas.

Normally when you mention swimming with sharks, people think you have lost your mind? Because only crazy people swim with sharks right? I don't know that I would swim in open water with sharks but I would definitely do a cage dive.

The Texas State Aquarium in Corpus Christi now gives you the opportunity to do a cage dive with sharks. Of course, you have the option of watching and exploring the shark's world behind the glass or you can jump right in. You will go underwater in a cage to admire six sandbar sharks, along with a guide of course. The adventure is only $99.00 a person. That's very reasonably priced as compared to adventures at other places.
