Comments Staff was amazing. they have been working together for years and really like each other so they are happy and very efficient.They could not have been nicer. Food was excellent,(thanks Randy). rooms were a little small but there was lots and lots of space on the boat.
on our checkout dive(cage) we had a 12 foot great white show up and for the next 3 days we had more and more with the big daddy being 14ft and 3000 pounds. he was named Spot.the bait was pulled closer to the cages by the surface support crew when a shark came near to give us a better close-up. I took over 1000 photos and 50 video clips. sometimes the sharks bumped the cages. the operation is very,very safe. we climbed into the cage and watched sharks circling while the underwater speakers and bait kept the sharks close by. We loved this so much we are chartering the whole boat next fall to bring our friends. the submersible cage was exciting. this cage is lowered 20 feet below the boat so you can get a different look and an additional thrill. Scott Davis was in this cage with one diver to be the eyes in the back of you. This operation is for any shark lover, any non diver who would like to see sharks close up and any photographer. we also had a couple mako sharks come by, dolphins and a turtle. Great place to get engaged also. Now we have a story to top all others on any dive boat.
