The Trip

Available to book as individual or full boat charter bookings.

Heading 10-20 miles offshore, the chum is dropped in the water and we wait. The sharks may appear after 30 minutes or 3 hours. It can sometimes be a little rocky whilst we are stationary waiting on the boat, but once they appear they normally stay with us until we leave.

You do not need a dive qualification to join our trips but must be very confident in open water and familiar with using a snorkel and mask.

INCREDIBLE!!!! 100% Recommend this trip, never had a wildlife encounter quite like it and would go back at the drop of a hat! At no point did we feel unsafe or like we were in danger, the sharks are playful, cheeky and got incredibly close which is exactly what we wanted!
