The adrenaline rush from shark cage diving comes from being face to face with one of the world’s greatest predators – the Great White Shark.

• The experience plants 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.

• An on-board marine biologist will educate you about this amazing apex predator and you will also be provided with a breakfast or lunch, as well as a wetsuit sizing before your dive and a celebratory beverage to toast the occasion.

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

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