Great time. Kids (11 & 14) both loved it. Clear waters and up close sharks. Totally worth it. Would go again in a minute.

We had the best time on our shark encounter. I got my husband, brother, and sisters to go on this adventure and we weren't disappointed! We saw three galapagos sharks on our dive! The captain was awesome and shared a lot of knowledge about sharks and other sea creatures. The other crew members were fantastic and very helpful. All were... More
