As you guys know, it's my mission in life to help people build wealth and live an epic adventure. Traveling the world is one of the many benefits of day trading online, and my wife and I have fallen in love with the ocean and scuba diving. In this post I wanted to show you my most epic diving experiences to date, and and a few that we plan to dive this year.
Epic Scuba Diving Experience #1 – Great Barrier Reef & Great White Shark Cage Diving, Australia
During one of our day trading trips to Australia, Nikki and I took a sailing cruise around the Whitsunday Islands in Australia. Since we were sailing throughout the Great Barrier Reef, I decided to do my first introduction to scuba diving class. Needless to say, I fell in love with the ocean and scuba diving as soon as I experienced the amazing sea life.
During our trip to Australia, we decided to head south for some cage diving with Great White Sharks. There's a little island off the southern tip of Australia called Neptune Island. And great white sharks love this area due to the abundant seal population. I want to give a big shout-out and thank you to Adventure Bay Charters for showing us a great time during this trip.
Epic Scuba Diving Spot #2 – Whale Sharks & The Phi Phi Islands, Thailand
Last year I took 3 scuba diving trips around the world. By far, my favorite experience was diving with Whale Sharks in Koh Tao, Thailand. I'd say diving with the biggest shark in the ocean is pretty damn epic, and is right up there with the great white sharks.
While being hosted by Big Blue Diving on Koh Tao, I was able to get some great footage of the whale shark dive. Apparently, seeing whale sharks is pretty rare and I got very lucky for seeing two on my first dives in Thailand.
After diving with whale sharks in Koh Tao, I decided to head over to the Phi Phi Islands where they filmed The Beach with Leonardo Dicaprio. The diving was absolutely gorgeous due to the crystal clear water, abundant sea life, and beautiful beaches. Check out this video of an affordable beach front villa that would easily go for $5,000+ a night in the U.S.:
Favorite Scuba Diving Spot #3 – Blue Hole, Belize
The Blue Hole is sought after by divers all over the world. While backpacking through Central America, I wanted to make a stop through Belize to dive in the blue hole.
One of the craziest moments of my diving career was when I was alone with a bull shark. My dive master was quite a ways in front of me, and I found myself up close and personal with this amazing creature.

A Few Upcoming Epic Diving Adventures:
Silfra, Iceland. We're kicking off our year-long “Epic Journey Around The World” in Iceland, and we're hoping to scuba dive between the European and North American continental plates.
Sipadan, Malaysia. Barracuda point has been listed many times as the #1 scuba diving destination in the world, and we plan on hitting that this year!
Red Sea, Egypt. There are some massive wrecks in the Red Sea, and I think it's going to be amazing for scuba diving.
Great White Wall, Fiji. Apparently, some of the best sea life in the world is around Fiji. I can't wait to capture some amazing footage for our up coming travel show!
