The turtles & sharks are amazing and come within 1ft away.
As an experienced diver with previous shark dive encounters, this dive do not fail to impress. The knowledge and friendliness of the staff and proximity and interaction of the sharks well worth the trip. Thank you for a very memorable experience.
Having been diving for the past two years I would have to rate this experience as a ultimate highlight. Thanks heaps for a fabulous adventure.
suprised at how easy it was to make a booking over the phone. These days companies tend to force you to their internet site, so it was great to speak with a compitent freindly person.
The shark dive was great, the staff made sure everyone was comfortable and happy with diving. We had two staff members for four people during the dive so we were well looked after and everyone had a great time. The sharks were awesome, but getting close and personal with a friendly sea turtle was the highlight for me.
