The adrenaline rush of cage diving with sharks comes from coming face to face with one of the world's largest predators: the great white shark.

• The experience puts you in their territory, while the safety of the cage allows you to be an observer and learn what great white sharks are really like.

• A marine biologist on board will educate you about this incredible apex predator and you will also be provided with breakfast or lunch, as well as a wetsuit size before your dive and a celebratory drink to toast the occasion.

• After this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you will find yourself buzzing with excitement and adrenaline. You will have had the opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the ocean's most majestic and foreboding creatures.

• The boat (Slashfin), is the largest in the industry (based on the most deck space per customer) and was purpose-built for shark cage diving. It includes two restrooms and an upper deck for the ultimate out-of-cage viewing and photography experience.
