Great experience, saw lots of sharks and the staff were professional and qualified. The boat wasn't too big therefore it wasn't crowded so we were able to enjoy it in an intimate way.

our shark dive is done in about 50' of water for certified divers; with a group of 5 divers you can do the 2 tank Shark feeding - shark interaction/behavior dive or do just a 2 tank dive shark interaction/behavior dive.
