Snorkelling with sharks is something you probably don't get to do anywhere else. The crew was professional and relaxed. There was no cage and no bait to lure the sharks. It is definitely an adventure!

Smaller groups. Friendly staff that calm nerves and so helpful in the water!! They're right there if you're struggling with the water or scared of the sharks. If I do it again itll be with them!

In the beginning you stay at the top, they will just swim around you - some swam quite close. Towards the end they tell us that we can free dive down.
