Our family had a very good time on this tour. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable. What I appreciated most was that they didn't rush us in the cage. We each got out in our own time which was awesome. Not only did we see sharks, we also had the privilege of seeing a number of whales in our... More

Crew was great, they were very knowledgeable about sharks, we learned a lot about them. Even though we went out when it looked like a storm was brewing and the water was rough, the crew handled it quite well. My Aunt can be pretty unstable on her feet but they carefully helped her no problem in and out of the... More

This was my 3rd time with them. Unlike other tour groups...this group does not feed the wild sharks. They were educated and really cared about the well being of the sharks. They love their job and made it fun for all of us on the trip. Best part was the warm shower after the dive on the boat.

This was an amazing experience! I am so glad that we did this. I highly recommend this group. They have the whole trip organized from start to finish and their passion about sharks is evident. They share all sorts of information and you can see how respectful they are of sharks and the environment. We went on the early morning... More

Great crew. Cap' and Chewy were awesome. The sharks were right next to us making for some excellent go pro moments. The only thing that was negative was that the ocean was very choppy. Hard to snorkel in the cage. It also made for some sea sickness, but all in all a must do at least once.

We loved this tour. We've done a lot of snorkeling, but this was one of our favorite experiences. It was so amazing seeing the sharks up close. The water is crystal clear, and we were in the water for at least twenty minutes. Our guides (I can't remember their names) were awesome. I highly recommend this tour.

My two teens and I enjoyed this experience very much. We went out on the first run early in the morning and had a blast. Rented a go-pro camera from the team and got great video. The Shark Encounter guys were fantastic, very helpful and knowledgable. Nothing beats being in the water with this awesome creatures. If you are on... More
