This was the last experience of a memorable trip to Africa. Our first encounter was to check in and pay. The woman at the counter had a great sense of humor about us signing the waiver about losing limbs or life. You are asked to check in early enough so you don't miss the boat, but they give you a coupon for a place nearby (within sight) for coffee. We had that and time to shop before our departure. Plan for an entire morning or afternoon and bring a good camera.
The "host" of our tour also had a great welcoming attitude. I was a little hesitant on our way out on the boat, as the crew seemed preoccupied, but they were. They opened up during our trip and all was great. There is a cooler of drinks and snacks, help-yourself style, which came in handy for some inevitable sea sickness.
There is not an abundance of prep talk, which is fine. You can ask anything you want. We were there during winter, so the sharks were plentiful. It was exciting to be able to see them so close. The crew is good about sharing information and genuinely seem to enjoy what they do. One of them was good about telling us to suck on "sweeties" which would help with the motion sickness. "Sweeties" or candy was included in the cooler and really did offer some relief.
There is ample time to view the sharks, either from the cage or from the boat. They bring you by Seal Island and we were treated to a bonus whale sight, which was an awesome way to end the tour.
Boats from other, similar tours seem to work together rather than competitively, and assure your trip is what you want it to be. Great experience.
