The Dive: Get ready for an exhilarating shark cage diving experience! Our cage comfortably fits 5 divers, but can take up to 6 if needed. Dive into the heart-pounding excitement of coming face-to-face with majestic sharks using our breath-hold system. This method is ideal for limited visibility, making every second count as you encounter these awe-inspiring creatures up close.
Our expert crew on the boat keeps a watchful eye on the sharks, ensuring you’re always looking in the right direction at the right time for the best possible views. For qualified divers, we offer a hookah scuba system, ideal for when visibility exceeds 6 meters. This allows you to seamlessly follow the sharks as they gracefully move around the boat and cage, enhancing your diving experience.
Hookah scuba is available on request, so please specify when booking. Get ready for an unforgettable dive into the depths with nature’s most fascinating predators!
