We did the tiger shark expedition for 7 days. The boat and crew were great. The tiger shark experiences we had were unbelievable. I never thiught i would see so many large tiger sharks so close. I will never forget this trip.

I dont think, Jim is offering cage diving. Its better without a cage to interact with the sharks. I have been on his boat and there were no equipment to handle cages.
