This tour was great as long as you are not disappointed if you don't see the headliner. We saw a few sharks and they did get very close to the cage/boat. They were bronze sharks, not the GWS. For the price we were picked up...More

Best to ask Marine Dynamics about how many they are seeing. We did good in September. However, earlier that year the Whites were attacked by Orcas and for a while they left the area.

We went mid September, saw Great Whites and Copperheads. If trip cancelled due to bad weather, MD offer you another trip out.

Hi there, no diving license is required. You will be provided with a snorkel mask and diving equipment.
