Ever since a kid I've been fascinated with sharks. The kind of fascination where I like to see pictures, movies and even at the Sydney Aquarium. But when I've learned that they are extremely prevalent in Catalina Channel, especially Great Whites, it scares me.
I'm so glad they aren't in the English Channel which is my ultimate goal. Catalina for me is a milestone on the way to the English Channel. So with that said, I'm seriously reconsidering that milestone. I know I have a greater chance of getting hit by a car or stung by a swarm of killer bees. But that statistic is probably because there aren't a whole lot of people swimming in Catalina channel to begin with.
What is another option in the USA, where Sharks are definitely not an issue, but the swim is similar in challenge to the Catalina Channel?
