About The Humpback Dive Shack
Sustainable Eco-Tourism at it's finest, from our conservative wildlife interaction ethics to the ultra low emission engines powering your adventure, witness the majesty of the marine environment in the most sensitive manner possible. This includes no holding (Stingrays for example), no taking (Shells for instance) and absolutely no killing of any marine organism on any tour. We adopt a totally passive approach to our marine safaris. Our PADI Master Scuba Diving Instructor, Marine Biologist and your captain (Brian), together with his wife and PADI Divemaster (Sabine) both believe that the things you see today should still be here tomorrow. We focus on small groups, personal service, education and commitment to the preservation and enjoyment of our mutual marine resources. Brian and Sabine are trained Whale and Dolphin swimming guides and have combined three decades of experience working with the Humpback Whales. SCUBA diving, snorkeling or whale watching - put your dreams on our boat!

Hi, we do not coral the stingrays, feed or touch them. It is evident that your review is for a different company. We will ask TripAdvisor to remove your comments. Thank you.
