Tying the knot - in a shark cage

Posted on Wednesday 09 June 2010 in United States of America


Some prefer outrageous to traditional weddings - United States of America Travel News

Those who consider weddings overseas perhaps think of a nice holiday in Hawaii and ceremony on the beach. Others might want to travel to Greece or warm countries in Europe to combine both a lovely ceremony and pleasant getaway. However, those who want to wed in a more edgy place may take inspiration from one American couple.

April Pignataro and Michael Curry tied the knot in a cage dropped into shark-infested waters at Atlantis Marine World in Riverhead, New York, the Huffington Post recently reported. In keeping with the nuptial theme, the bride wore a white wetsuit while the groom chose black.

Tourists or newlyweds planning a holiday in the United States may consider taking their love for adventure to the extreme by marrying under the water. However, for those who want to simply experience shark infested waters without making a lifelong commitment, there are plenty of opportunities to do so.

For instance, those planning a holiday in Hawaii might want to head to Oahu, where they have the option of taking a boat ride out into the Pacific Ocean to spot a shark or two from the deck, or jump into a secure underwater cage to get a closer look at the creatures below.
