Worth every penny and you can always say you swam face to face with sharks (safely:). Crew was passionate about the ocean and made our large group feel very safe and secure.

My wife and I were on our honey moon. She really wanted to do it. I was indifferent, but am very glad I did. It was a great experience. Captain Phillip and first mate were knowledgeable and funny. They kept a clean ship. Not only...More

My wife and I both agree this was by far the best activity we went to. Phillip and Kal-el were great and took care of the group and also entertaining but made us all feels safe. We're definitely doing this again when we come back.

The two guides were fantastic. Both very knowledgeable and enjoyed their company! Would definitely do this again and highly recommend this specific company for anyone looking to cage dive with some sharks!

On-time departure with 2 other families in the group. We went into the floating cage in 2 shifts. The captain had some tricks that got the sharks right up to the boat and cage. Warm fresh-water rinse right out of the cage was nice.

They do offer transportation, but it was really expensive (sorry, I don't remember the price). It was just cheaper for us to rent a car (there were two couples) so we could enjoy the other side of the island at our own pace.
