On arrival you will be fully briefed and kitted for a full morning Cage Diving with one of the most professional and environmentally conscious operators in the area. Sharks are attracted to the vessel by the use of a chum slick and divers take turns enter the 4 man cage while those in waiting have excellent surface viewing opportunities.

Your afternoon is left free to explore the local area or simply to relax.
