We are planning a visit to NZ and would like to do the Great White Shark cage diving through Southern Aqua Adventures. Sounds like they have good reviews, but I'm under the assumption that Great Whites migrate or maybe aren't as frequent in the NZ winter months which is why SAA doesn't open for business until December 1st. Or is this due to rough weather?
We would go either December 3rd or 6th. I know they give a voucher good for one year if you do not see a Great White, but I'm coming all the way from New York, and doubt I'll be back within a year to use the voucher. Has anyone done these dives in the begining of December? Did you see lots of Sharks? I'm just concerned I'll cough up over $900 and not see any Great Whites! Any info/insight you can provide would be VERY appreciated!!
