SHARK DIVING: Calypso Star office manager Natasha Becker (left) and skipper Andrew Wright (right) with AFL Footy Show personalities James Brayshaw and Billy Brownless in front of one of the Calypso Star boats. Mr Brownless dived with the sharks as part of a dare when he lost his certainty tip on last week’s footy show.THE Footy Show’s Billy Brownless and James Brayshaw visited Port Lincoln on Tuesday to dive with the sharks as part of a dare announced on last week’s show.
Mr Brownless lost his “certainty tip” and was dared to go diving with the sharks in Port Lincoln, so he brought Mr Brayshaw along with him.
The pair arrived in Port Lincoln on Monday night with their film crew and were introduced to the region’s local seafood.
“I’m all seafood’ed out.”
Calypso Star took the pair out to Neptune Islands and office manager Natasha Becker said they were fortunate enough to see six sharks.
“Billy was a bit nervous,” she said.
“He tried to keep a calm face, but the fear set in.
“The first shark we saw was five metres and it rolled sideways and eyeballed him.”
Once safe on dry land, Mr Brownless said it was a unique experience to be so close to one of the world’s largest predators.
“Being in the water a metre away, you see how graceful they are,” Mr Brownless said.
