  • It was an amazing experience. It was an adventure that I will never forget.

  • This tour was great value for money! The whole time from start to finish the staff were amazing and the divers who work along side you were great! At no point did I ever feel in danger whether it was before the dive or during the dive. If you are a thrill seeker it is an amazing experience to do!

  • Amazing. The staff was very nice and helpful. They gave us instructions on scuba diving. Before going into the tank with the sharks, we practiced in a small one with fishes. The sharks swam just underneath us. I would do it again.

  • Highly recommend this trip, I have my open water diving but my husband had never dived before, we did have problem getting in as I did not print off the email just showed it on my phone, the staff were very helpful and took time sorting it out, we had instructions on scuba diving and then practiced in the small tank with the fishes and then went into the big tank with the sharks we had loads of photos taken and the diver videoed the dive for us and I also took in my pro camera, the sharks swam all round us and underneath us, so close, it was amazing, would definitely do this trip again, loved it!

  • I booked this tour as a surprise for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was spectacular! I am not a huge fan of swimming next to sharks and quite fond of my appendages but the staff quickly put my worries at ease. This is by far, the most memorable part of our entire vacation.
