“Well done”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

Trip was well done. Crew was friendly. Saw two types of sharks and quite a few (15 or so) that circled the cage. As stated in other reviews ride can be rough so be prepared. Would recommend this company and trip. Although enjoyable its a one time kind of thing

“Rip Off”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Called the company and told them I would be late for the excursion and they offered me an excursion an hour later. When I arrived for the later tour it was cancelled due to inclement weather. Was denied any type of refund. Will not book with them ever again.

“Shark Adventure”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Had the pleasure of going on a tour with North Shore Shark Adventures while on a business trip. From the booking which I did by phone (also has online reservations), to the follow up, and then the trip itself, NSSA did a great job.

The water was extremely choppy for our tour but that didn't spoil the fun, and the sharks were there as promised and very active. I recommend the early tour to get the most active sharks.

Captain and deck hands were fun and personable.

“Interesting but extremely sickening”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you're going to head out to do the shark excursion, I HIGHLY recommend taking a motion sickness pill the night before if you're going in the early morning and then again in the morning if you expect the excursion to last during the afternoon.

The gentlemen that ran the boat/tour were extremely nice and helpful and quite funny but the ride was so choppy and then to dock while both groups are in the cage is extremely nauseating. We spent most of our time throwing up either in the cage with the other people or over the side of The boat. Never have I ever been so sick and wanted to get back to land. The trip was only about two hours total but completely screwed us up the rest of the day.

It was cool to see the sharks come up from below and swim very close to the cage and around you but they are not very big and after 5 minutes of being in there, you've seen all you can expect to see. It's very over-priced but at least the staff was friendly and supportive.

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Amazing - crew were great and very concerned with safety etc which made me feel better! Cage is a little crowded with people - 4 max would allow more room and movement! The number of sharks we saw was great - felt amazing to be so close! Would recommend this trip to everyone...
