Shark safaris are not for the faint hearted but can be an eye opening experience like no other. If you love the water and want to opportunity to get up close to these fantastic creatures then this is a trip not to be missed.
Most of the shark experience trips require no previous experience as long as you are able to breath through an oxygen mask, you are good to go. All equipment is provided and as long as you book with a reputable company, is all safety checked before each dive.
Many of the dives cost around £100-£150 each which is very reasonable considering the experience you get. Its not just the sharks that will wow you, with a wealth of beautiful marine life you can be sure you will not be disappointed.
