My daughter and I had a fantastic day out. We were properly looked after, the staff were professional and courteous and would go out of their way to make it an enjoyable day. Thanks to two greedy and crafty orcas, sadly the great whites were in hiding however we saw up to 15 species including the bronze sharks with teeth that I didn't want anywhere near me! Many thanks

Seeing the sharks was definitely the highlight. It was very save too, all on board are very professional. You get a swimsuit, life vest and a waterproof jacket so I was warm all the time.

The sharks right in your face were over the top amazing! The staff are so knowledgeable. I thought the trip was strictly shark diving, but we had a marine biologist on board explaining all of the ecosystems and mating patterns on all species we viewed.

This one one one of the greatest excursions that my wife and I have ever done. From start to finish it was an amazing and thrilling experience. Everyone from the driver to the tour guide to the people running the boat….A+. We have been all over the world and have done excursions in each country but nothing has topped this.

It was a great experience. The boat is a little bumpy for those that get seasickness. But it was great getting and the water and seeing the sharks at such a close distance.
