Divemaster Jimi is a super fantastic host and a Great White expert!
He and the Islander Crew know how to bring you this experience. This is a Great White Shark Expedition. You are aboard a fishing boat with its sole purpose to get you up close and personal with these magnificent creatures. This is not a floating hotel with up to 32 divers. On my trip we had 11 Great White aficionados. Lots of underwater time, I was under for close to 15 hours and 4 hours straight on the last day. The sleeping quarters are small, but they are clean and I had no trouble sleeping. Perhaps the rocking of the boat helped. Speaking of which, if you are prone to sea sickness (I'm not), I would highly advise taking Dramanine for the trip, after all it is a 220 mile ocean crossing, weather dependent.
Al the cook did a good job feeding us. The freshly caught Tuna Sushi was a hit!
There are only two bathrooms on-board and the crew made sure there were always clean and there is lots of hot water for showering.
The first day we saw over 12 Great Whites, the overall count was 25+ for the 3 days of diving. Each with it's own personality. My videos are over the top, especially the one of a 14 foot female coming straight up from the bottom, gliding by us in the 30 foot submerged cage (total different perspective there....). Those vids can be found at "The Great White Conservation and Scientific Research" Facebook Page. Would definitely do this trip again...
