Diving with sharks is an amazing experience, however I would not recommend doing it with this company. For a 12 hour day you actually only have around 15 minutes in the cage. Staff also quite rude and uninterested.

Yes we saw them, I don't know if they'll be there later. Choose your company wisely. Not all are reputable
