“WASTE OF MONEY”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2004

The company has a great website that makes you believe great white sharks are everywhere. The tell you about great food and drinks being served all day. The company is not allowed to chum (fish blood and guts) to attract and keep the sharks near the boat. They instead use a surfboard that sometimes gets a shark near the boat but then the shark leeves after he relizes there is no food. Th visbility is 5 to 10 feet and you cant even see a shark if one comes near. The food we were given was a boxed lunch worth about 2 dollars and it was wet. Don't waste you eight hundred dollars on this trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The compnay told many lies and all passengers on theboat were very upset.
