We did the tiger shark expedition for 7 days. The boat and crew were great. The tiger shark experiences we had were unbelievable. I never thiught i would see so many large tiger sharks so close. I will never forget this trip.

I dont think, Jim is offering cage diving. Its better without a cage to interact with the sharks. I have been on his boat and there were no equipment to handle cages.

Their price are on the website. Check out "Diving Palm Beach" and the "Pricing and Schedule" Deep Obsession is the boat they use for local diving.
