Have you ever wanted to live out your very own version of Jaws? No? Didn’t think so, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get up close and personal with sharks while traveling down under.


It’s much safer than you probably think. A few different outlets offer shark diving adventures around Sydney and it’s up to you to choose the one right for your needs.


Some options include hopping into a cage right out in the unprotected ocean, where you’ll be surrounded by a multitude of species including turtles, manta rays and, of course, sharks. You might even see a Great White. They won’t be able to get to you, though, because you’ll be safely ensconced in an impenetrable steel cage.


Other outlets, like Manly Sea Life Sanctuary provide opportunities for you to actually swim with the great underwater beasts. A trained instructor and diver will take you down into one of Australia’s many wildlife underwater sanctuaries filled with endangered Great Nurse Sharks and other sea animals.


Don’t worry, Great Nurse Sharks are extremely passive and it’s a perfectly safe experience for you and your family or friends. Sharks eat other fish, not humans — mostly.


The sanctuaries are also home to giant manta rays, which can even get bigger than the sharks. If you think you’re brave enough, you should definitely give it a try!

LGBTQ+: Saba, Caribbean Netherlands

Saba Island was the first Caribbean island to legalize same-sex marriage back in 2012. While the tiny Dutch territory is extremely welcoming of the LGBTQ+ community, it’s not exactly a hotbed of gay activity. At only five square miles, there isn’t much room for gay bars and glam.
