This is definitely the most amazing dive i have completed that gets you close to sharks. As most divers will know, you will generally see a small shark when you go diving which is some way off in the distance. This dive you have got so many species to look at and they are all within what is probably 10 meters of you. Do be careful of inexperienced and somewhat excited divers as well all rushing to the get prime spots, a lot of banging and crashing goes on down there between divers, and also annoying buggers that continually take photos with flash... i prefer to dive and just watch in peace.
The dive briefing is excellent and dive sites are well thought out. Divemasters are diligent under water and prioritise your safety. I will always remember not only watching the sharks, but also taking piece of mind looking back and above us to see our divemaster security guards keeping an ever watchful eye out for us...fortunately their security services were not required, not to my knowledge at least.
On the second dive i was somewhat surprised to see the tank i was diving on had quite low air when completing my first checks under water. This is my fault for not checking the air pressure once the crew said they had replaced the air tanks for the second dive... mine may have been forgotten? I will never know, however i did make sure that i swam close a divemaster just in case :)
This is no ordinary dive, it is very much like sit and watch the sharks. I got cold from the depths and also lack of movement. The day i went in October was also cold so this did not help, including the thin wetsuit on offer.
There is also another Shark dive company based in Pacific harbour that offers different dive locations and looks equally as good.
Don't forget, with this dive you are not only learning about sharks, but also investing into the marine park that harbours so much life as the local village has agreed to not fish in that designated area.
Don't be scared, just do it, when you you get the chance to do something as amazing as this again?
