I LOVED this!! No bating, just some music, and sharks would get a little curious. I never once felt scared at all!! You're completely taken care of from minute 1!! Coffee, lunch made right there on the boat, a smooth ride, and wonderful dive time!! I spent every second I could in there, and brought my own underwater camera, however... More

Swimming with Sea Lions and Great Whites: It is a must-do and worth every cent. There is something special about travelling to a place and coming back having learned something valuable. My sister and I are still talking about our fantastic memories swimming on our sea lion and great white shark tours during December 2014. At the end of November... More

Shark cage diving - OMG. Amazing. Great boat, clean and new. Great food and most important GREAT WHITE SHARKS. You can go in the cage (even my 11 year old did it) or you can go in the underwater viewing area. Fantastic. Only problem is it is a long boat ride and you can really get sea sick. Take lots...
