What to Expect on a Shark Diving Trip
Once the crew is on the boat we head out on a 30-minute boat ride to the shark trip dive site.
On the ride out, and at the dive site the Captain will go over the dive procedures in detail and answers any questions the group has about the shark trip. Once all information has been covered, we begin deploying our shark attractant setup which usually brings sharks in quickly, rarely over a half an hour of wait time.
Once the sharks of Florida are around the boat they are ready to feed and take what they can from around the boat. From here it’s time to get ready to dive and as we lower the cage into the water everybody gets suited up.
When the divers are ready, they make their way to the cage which is safely secured right next to the boat. In addition to shark cage diving, we also offer a freediving shark trip where our divers stay right around the platform of the boat without the cage and are kept safe at all times.
One quick jump or a few steps down from the boat and the divers are safely in the cage, free to watch as the sharks swim around the boat. For those that need a reality check, it is impossible for these sharks to get into the cage and you are 100% safe.
Our operation is designed with safety and functionality as the number one aspect. After the divers get used to the routine they can get in and out of the cage as much as they want throughout the day. There is no greater way to spend the day than to be out on the water safely watching one of the wild’s greatest predators.
