The whole idea was intimidating, as it should be. The crew was extremely professional, polite, confident, safe, experienced and made my wife and I feel comfortable thru the entire trip. Ryan was very funny, informative and helpful. I never felt unsafe and I noticed the boat and cage and snorkel gear was all wellaintained. And by the way, the sharks... More

You do not realize how big an 11ft shark is until you have 20 huge sharks swimming around the cage the instant you hit the water. At first it kind of took my breath away by how close I was to this large predator , but once I put some faith in the shark cage separating me from this massive... More

We must be lucky, the water was flat and clear and no wind... No one was even the slightest bit unwell. You didn't even need to go into the cage to see the sharks, fish, barracuda etc, you could see them all clearly from the boat.... But that doesn't matter... This is a must... I highly recommend this as its... More

Excellent trip. Very professional. Felt very safe. Not as many sharks I may have thought I was going to see, but in saying that I was not disappointed. Had about six circling the cage for the full 20 minutes we were in it. Varied in size from 6ft to 16ft. All came in within 2ft of cage. Was breeding and... More

My husband and I just went on a shark encounter earlier today. All in all, we enjoyed ourselves. The tour is stated to last 2 hours from leaving the dock and returning. The boat ride out is about 15 minutes each way. People on the boat are divided into smaller groups to fit into the cage. You are not in... More

Aloha Grey M., Mahalo for joining us on tour and sharing your review. We appreciate your detailed description and recommendations. We'd like to add that sharks appear all day and on most days, the earlier morning tours seem to have more sharks than any other tour times; sometimes, the opposite is true. The added benefit for coming out on the... More

My husband and I had a great trip w/our guides last week! If you get seasick, invest in some Dramamine. The water on the ride out as well as the when the cage is up against the boat was very choppy. Several folks got sick. Was a little disappointed that the crew thought the shark activity didn't warrant the video... More

Aloha karaspeckman, Mahalo for joining us on tour and sharing your review. We appreciate your feedback and recommendations. Not sure what tour time you selected but we like to always recommend some kind of sea-sick prevention since people have different tolerances to being sea-sick.

The staff is super friendly. We called the morning of for a party of 5 and they were able to accommodate us without any trouble. Once at the location they briefed us on the day on off to the diving site we went. I got a little boat sick and they took care of me without a doubt.

I went swimming in the cage whilst my wife watched from the boat. Bit of a trip out and it gets choppy away from shore so sea sickness meds a good idea. 20 mins in the cage with loads of sharks swimming around (apparently they are attracted by the sound of the engines as they think its a crabbing boat)....

I had some adventurous visitors so thought why not? It's not something I ever thought about doing but was glad I did. 3 miles out takes the boat to the horizon & the shark cage. It was choppy so one couldn't help but be bobbed up and down. The Galapagos sharks were beautiful, about 8' long and there were maybe... More
