Went with a group, which they cater to, and we didn't have any trouble. Very impressive operation, well organized, detailed briefing, good first shark dive. Well worth the admission price. I thoroughly enjoyed the dive and highly recommend it! Thanks guys.

There is a monopoly afoot for the shark dive and your safety is not even in the top 20 of their concerns, they will happily take your money and endanger your life though. While this dive is exhilarating and diving with sharks is an opportunity...More
