Twenty-four years ago, I took a job that changed my life. I signed on as one of the first employees of a new company selling MiG fighter jet flights in Russia. Now, I'm considered something of an Adventure Goddess. I've written a book about adventure and have flown a fighter jet, floated in zero-g and a whole lot more. Life is either an incredible adventure or nothing at all, right?
Make me jealous. Spend three days in the Arizona desert learning evasive driving and executive protection skills from driving pro and security expert Gordon Edwards. I’d love to sign up for the next three-day driving class outside Tucson, set to kick off April 27th, but someone has to stay in the office, helping others plan incredible adventures!
The three-day course normally sells for $2400 and includes meals and lodging but I can score you a great deal if you call me soon at 800-644-7382.
One of the best things about selling adventure is getting to meet really incredible people. Nic de Gersigny is one of those people. For years, he helped welcome Incredible Adventures customers to Cape Town, to fly fighter jets and dive with white sharks. Now, he’s the head of SEAL Expeditions and leads Incredible Adventures clients on South Africa’s epic “Sardine Run” each year. Take it from me. It’s impossible to not have a great time, hanging out with Nic.
Each year, thousands of sardines migrate along South Africa’s coastline, setting off a feeding frenzy and providing an opportunity to get in the water with vast quantities of sea life. Snorkel with sharks, whales, dolphins and more.
2018 Adventure Dates are: June 29-July 7, July 7-July 15 and July 15-23. For details, visit the Incredible Adventures website or call 800-644-7382.
Pre-trip delivery of new underwater cameras has been confirmed. Waivers have been collected and wetsuit sizes verified. Crew members in San Francisco are preparing the cage and working down their to-do lists. There are air tanks to pick up and groceries to buy.
I can’t wait for 6 pm, Saturday…when the boat returns, and I receive my first trip report from the incredible Greg Barron…our Director of West Coast Shark Operations. Fingers crossed that our first trip of the season turns out to be a very sharky day!
You can book your own San Francisco shark adventure online.
Tomorrow, several members of the IA team will travel to Portland, Tennessee, and begin making final preparations for Monday’s special Eclipse HAHO Jumps. If all goes as planned, a lucky group of international adventurers will be in the air during Monday’s total and partial eclipse, literally enjoying a bird’s eye view of the darkened sky. The thrill-seekers are set to make extreme high-altitude, military-style “HAHO” jumps, allowing them to remain airborne 20 minutes or more.
I had the option of going along for the adventure, but agreed to stay behind and oversee our Sarasota office. Instead, I’ll be heading to DeLand, Florida in October to oversee our next special skydiving event….a high-altitude jump over Florida, with Skydive Everest’s Tom Noonan.

It’s hard to describe the feeling of being weightless. I’ve been selling zero-gravity adventures for more than two decades and still haven’t found the perfect words. I can only say that there is nothing else like it.
Jessy, a new member of the Incredible Adventures team, completed her first zero-gravity flight last week. I think the smile on her face says more than I ever could.
I love this year’s edition of our digital holiday catalog. I wish I could take credit for the great graphics, but I simply contributed text and inspiration and let our incredible webmaster Nancy work her magic. The catalog makes use of “flip book” technology, so you can travel from dream to dream with ease. May 2017 your most adventurous year yet!
I love San Francisco, so I’m really excited to have a new excuse to visit “for work”. We’re now offering aerobatic flight training at Livermore Airport, less than an hour’s drive from the city.
I get queasy in elevators, so you won’t find me in the cockpit of a high-performance aircraft, performing rolls and loops over wine country any time soon, but I’ll be recommending the adventure to all my Bay Area friends. Our lead instructor pilot is a former Air Force U-2 pilot and a professional airshow performer. Call Incredible Adventures at 800-644-7382 for more info.
