Hey guys! I am Brandy, I had a bunch of questions about VH a couple of months ago. I am still going there in November and I read this board everyday, I just don't post much, since I haven't been yet. But watch out when I get back! I am so terribly excited about seeing AC and VH and everything!
Ok, here are some new questions. First off, do the guides/tourists feed the sharks at Shark Alley and any other places? My finacee's dad is a shark expert, and my fiancee is also becoming a zoologist (who will focus more on ecological conservation, not sharks). Anyway, he thinks it would be "scandalous" if he got a fluke bite at some place where they are feeding sharks. (His dad runs the Shark Attack Files and has also spoken out against shark feeding.)
I personally want to feed them and swim with them, and I think Matt will be fine if I fib to him and get him out there. So, I was just checking to see at which sites they do that (and so I can prepare myself with some lil' ol white lies).
Also, I know there have been a lot of posts about the quality of diving there. We went to Bonaire with his family last year, but we only got to dive once because I got seriously sinus-y sick. Is the diving similar? Better/Worse? How is AC compared to Bonaire. Bonaire was not the lap of luxery, but there was good food, and nice snorkeling and diving. I get a simmilar vibe about AC when I read posts.
Ok, any thoughts feedback would ROCK! Thanks, I love you guys!
