You’ll be absorbing the wonders of the Atlantic Ocean while your crazy buddies put on their diving gear and you’ll suddenly catch a glimpse of a tail or fin, but more often than not you are surprised by the sudden appearance of this magnificent animal as it approaches the boat.


Surface viewing - shark cage diving


Often the shark will come right to the edge of the boat where it is close enough to touch. The Great White will swim gracefully around the boat absorbing all the smells, motion and light, providing surface viewers with many excellent photo opportunities. At the same time the divers in the cage can appreciate this beautiful animal face to face.


If you’ve got the guts, this is the point at which you’ll go shark cage diving to get an even closer view of the Great White Sharks…
