The weather was a little cloudy and seas rough. While in cage we were being thrashed around. Had to get closer to bottom of cage just to prevent from being tossed!

Swimming with the sharks was fun. We also saw a tuna and a barracuda. One of the highlights was dolphins we saw on our way to the shark cage. Overall a great time with an accommodating crew

We used google maps to get there no problem at all. Once on the boat Marlin Matt and Dave were great! Very knowledgable! At one point we had 12 sharks around us! Would do again in a heartbeat!
