This was a great experience. The waves were a little rough, but there were between 5-7 sharks swimming in their natural environment all around you. Just make sure that if you take an underwater camera that you have a flotation device with it as there...More

Guides are great, a lot of sharks and a lot of fun. Strongly recommend. If you want extreme, go later during the day. Water is choppy, which makes more fun. Thank you guys.

I enjoyed it. Would of been better with less people in the cage. It got a bit crowded. Also a bit pricey, but comparable to others.

The pros - 1. Seeing the sharks in open water is so different from seeing it in an aquarium. It was cool. 2. We went at 9am and it was perfect timing as it would have been too hot to go any later. 3. We...More

They do offer transportation, but it was really expensive (sorry, I don't remember the price). It was just cheaper for us to rent a car (there were two couples) so we could enjoy the other side of the island at our own pace.
