We're Permitted to Trick Sharks

Incredible Adventures uses seal-shaped decoys to attract
white sharks near its shark cage.Thanks to a Sarasota, Florida elementary school art teacher, three new seal decoys have made their way to San Francisco, just in time for the start of the 2010 dive season. She magically transformed fabric and foam into floating shark bait.

Incredible Adventures holds a permit from the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary authorizing us to use decoys shaped like local marine mammals to attract great white sharks. Without such a permit, it's illegal to do anything to attract white sharks within Sanctuary waters.

Dive with great
white sharks in San Francisco with Incredible Adventures.The white sharks travel to the Farallones to feed on the area's large population of Elephant seals. We travel to the Farallones in hopes of witnessing one of these spectacular natural feeding events. (The technical term for them is "predations".) The seal decoys are designed to "trick" sharks into thinking they've found a defenseless seal meal and help increase the odds of seeing sharks near our shark cage. 

As a reminder, our great white shark expeditions depart from San Francisco's famous Fisherman's Wharf on select weekend dates from September 25 through November 14. No dive experience is necessary and space is still available on several trips. The cost to get in the cage is $875. Viewing entirely from the boat is $375. For more info and a list of available dates, call or email Sheri.

The Good Ship Monaco

The Monaco sailed
the playa at Burning Man in 2010.In our June newsletter, we wrote about our Director of West Coast Shark Operations, Greg Barron, and his quest to turn an old Monaco RV into a Tall Ship capable of sailing across the desert at this year's Burning Man Festival. We weren't kidding when we told you that Greg "Diver McGyver" Barron can build just about anything. With a lot of help from fellow shark team members and friends, he constructed a rolling piece of art. The after and before photos speak for themselves.

Big Fun for Big Customers

If you happen to be a little larger than the average human, don't let that stop you from calling to inquire about an incredible adventure. We'll do our best to accommodate you. While some programs have strict height and weight requirements, many adventures don't. We've had some pretty tall and pretty wide customers over the years.

MiG Sales Climb High - Flight Sales Up Over 100%

Jane's SPACE Adventure

While attending SPACE 2010, an aerospace conference held in Anaheim, California earlier this month, IA's Jane Reifert had a chance to tour SpaceX. For those who aren't familiar with SpaceX, the company was started by PayPal founder Elon Musk and is working to build a possible replacement for the US Space Shuttle. Even a "non-space-geek" like Jane was impressed by the facility and the progress the company seems to be making.

Musk was model for Iron Man movie character.Visitors to the facility can't miss the life-sized statue of "Iron Man" in the center of the rocket factory. Scenes from "Iron Man 2" were filmed at SpaceX and founder Musk served as inspiration for Robert Downey, Jr's character, Tony Stark.
