Cage free!!
, Oct 2021
Got so close and yet not nervous at all. The sharks were all calm as was everyone else. The crew did a great job. Also, how awesome to not be able to take your camera. They take tons of photos and get them to you for free. I feel sorry for the people that signed up for the shark cage dive. Cage-free is the way to go!

Seriously, just book it!

Amazing experience! Both my partner and I felt very nervous leading up to the trip and it was for nothing. We felt completely safe during the swim and are so happy we did this! What an experience. Can’t wait to do it again!
Highly suggest this tour 🦈 ✌🏽

So glad I was able to take a friend that got to experience this with out the hassle of getting her certified to scuba dive.
Obviously swimming freely...

Obviously swimming freely with the sharks was the best part. I do wish we got to have more time in the water with the sharks.
I'd party with Captain...

Sharks reimagined

A fun adventure that made us see sharks in a different light. These docile graceful creatures gave us quite a thrill. Galapagos sharks were total show-offs while shy hammerheads shows up for a quick hello. Our guide Braxton was very friendly and intertwining. Highly recommend!
