DAN Great White Shark Trip Has Limited Spots Available

DURHAM, NC –  Cage diving with great white sharks is in itself an amazing experience, but to do it in the name of a good cause could prove to be a once-in-a-lifetime chance.  That chance is here, and it can be yours.  But only if you hurry, because only a few spots remain!

Join Divers Alert Network® (DAN®) Aug. 29 – Sept. 3, 2009 for the Great White Shark Dive 2009, a fundraiser to benefit DAN Research.  You’ll spend a week aboard the Nautilus Explorer off the coast of Guadalupe Island, cage diving with one of the planet’s oldest and unchanging creatures.  The trip offers four full days of diving, so you can spend as much time as you like in the cages, experiencing first-hand the awe of the great white shark.  If that’s not enough for you, the trip also offers opportunities for shoreline expeditions to visit local wildlife such as elephant seals, Guadalupe fur seals and California sea lions.

You’ll be accompanied on the trip by Dan Orr and other representatives from DAN, and proceeds will go to benefit DAN Research.  A portion of your trip cost is tax-deductible.

“I can attest that cage diving with great whites aboard the Nautilus Explorer is a first-rate experience,” said Dan Orr, president and CEO of DAN. “I’ve done the trip before, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to repeat the experience as a fundraiser for DAN.”

Space is limited, so don’t wait to reserve yours.  For additional information, or to book your spot on the Great White Shark Dive 2009, please contact Jaclyn Messersmith at (919) 684-2948 x.611 or via email at
