ADVENTURE QUEST | Adrenaline Rush at Sea – Sarosh Georges Jacob’s compelling Dive with Sharks in Los Cabos
Hauteoc caught up with Adventurer Sarosh Georges Jacob on his incredible trip to Los Cabos, in the past Sarosh had shared with us his compelling underwater sea adventures as he encountered one -of-a-kind experiences with unusual species. On this special occasion Sarosh shares with us a video debut of his encounters with sharks – an adrenaline rush unlike any other.
Hauteoc: Hi Sarosh, thank you for sharing your amazing adventures with us! What’s the biggest challenge as a photographer-filmmaker specializing in adventure travel?
Sarosh: The conditions you encounter can be rough at times. Last month, I was in Iceland shooting video and stills of The Silfra Rift. Iceland’s Silfra Rift is a crack in the earth where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates are tearing apart from each other at about 2cm per year. You actually dive between two continents! The water temperature was 32 degrees so after a while it started to get painfully cold.
Hauteoc: Incredible, must have been quite a challenge. What is the most amazing encounter with nature you’ve had while diving?
Sarosh: That would be the first time I saw a whale shark. I was diving in the Maldives and this massive shark the size of a school bus glided by. I was in awe! One of those moments in life you never forget.
Sarosh: I would recommend them to do a lot of scuba diving. The diving you can do out of Cabo, (Socorro Islands etc) is truly world class.
Hauteoc: What has been your most exciting trip while filmmaking?
Sarosh: That’s a tough one. I’ve been on a lot of trips but I’d have to put my dive trip to the Socorro Islands aboard the Solmar V at the top. It was the first time I encountered a bait ball out in the blue like that with all those silky sharks just going nuts! Being in the water filming those sharks was a pure adrenaline rush! The action we saw day after day was like a National Geographic film. Very exciting!
Hauteoc: Thank you so much for sharing all your amazing experiences and underwater encounters! Diving is definitely on our to-do list!
