We have spare Shamus, but no whale sharks here and Southwest, our Texan airline of choice, does not fly into Atlanta. Kiddo wants to dive with a whale shark - he's BTDT with other sharks, whales, dolphins, manatees and rays. He's also travelled on more cruise ships than most adults, as well as subs, sailboats and other watercraft. He's been at the control of large ships since 8 and a diver since 10.
Keep us in mind when planning. I'll be solo diving Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Grand Turk, and the Bahamas on the Prisendam in December as kiddo can't make it. I hold Navigation, Buoyancy, Enriched Air, Equipment, Deep and other cards. Kiddo's pretty much functionally a Junior Master Diver, but still limited to 40 feet at his age.
Kiddo's signing your dive log would make it collectable. 8)

Maybe we could plan another trip at a more convenient time, with or without kiddo's (possibly with other adult divers, and a dive focus), and share expenses for an awesome trip at affordable rates. Can't believe you'd give up Shamu though!
