Animal Collective designs shoes and releases new music to support the Socorro Island Conservation Fund + blog from hostess Silvia – 26 SEPT 2010 – Guadalupe Island

When I imagined my first encounter with a great white shark at Guadalupe Island, i thought i would get nervous and my heart would start beating fast. But when i finally met them, it was exactly the contrary.  I became absolutely calm watching them and was overwhelmed how beautiful they are. No fear at all even when they come close and I’m standing on the cage. Its a great experience. Thanks to the crew of the nautilus explorer  I went into the 15 footer in the afternoon, at first the sharks seemed docile but they suddenly came to life as a school of tuna swam by.  They got really close to the cage and 2 of them almost collided as they went for a tuna.  Someone got it on camera and I can’t wait to see the shots!
