Shark God In Action

For those of you thinking ahead a couple months, please do NOT get me one of these for my birthday. I much prefer the feel of the ocean water on my skin (not to mention my claustrophobia issues).

It is way cool, though. The Kamohoali'i (shark god) looks like a fighter jet, easily dives to 1000 feet, and can stay under for twenty hours (but passengers begin to get "squirly" after two hours). With a support staff of: 3 divers, 1 sub pilot, 1 coordinator, and 1 captain for the support boat, plus maintenance of lots of sensitive equipment, it is understandable that they charge almost $4000 per ride.
