Anthony's Wish - The Great Whites
Anthony had dreamed of getting up and close with a great white shark for many years with his best friend Stewart. Since being diagnosed with Stage 4 melanoma (which has now spread to his brain) his dream has become more urgent. The Orange Pigeon Inc. set about making this wish a reality along with the wonderful (and very generous) crew from the Port Lincoln Hotel and Adventure Bay Charters.
Anthony said from the minute he and Stewart left Queensland on their journey to Port Lincoln in South Australia, they felt overjoyed with the experience they were about to have. "The sharks were amazing!" He couldn't believe the size of them in the flesh. He and Stewart saw 4 different Great White sharks sized from 2.5 to 4.5 meters. The charter then spoilt them with a dive with the seals. Totally unexpected but great also.
Anthony said "Thank you for the flights, accommodation, dive, breakfasts and the surprise of a full seafood dinner on one of the nights. Your organisation is so amazing! Keep up the angel work you all do."We are so glad that Anthony's major bucket list item has been achieved with his best friend right by his side.
RIP Anthony 16 March 1978 - 23 October 2015
