This was a lifetime event! Once we got to the site, there were many sharks swimming under the boat. I was not scared and was ready to see these magnificent creatures. We saw about 8-10 sharks total and it was awesome! This is priceless. Just do it!!
Incredible. Well worth the long drive. Take dramamine before you go because the water is rough. I was amazed at how many sharks there were. double check timing becuase tours get cancelled becuase of weather and our date and time changed.
Highly recommend, was a great experience. Would suggest taking an underwater camera or you can purchase on board. Lots of sharks and 20 minutes was a perfect amount of time. The captains were very good and helpful and experienced. Transfers to get there were pricy but unless you want to hire a car it's really the only option.
We booked this trip online on a Tuesday for a Thursday trip. On Wednesday we got a text message from viator saying that the time we asked for was not available. We responded that we would not be able to make any of the available times. Our credit card was charged anyway. Email to "customer support" on Thursday went unanswered. Second email to "customer support" on Saturday went unanswered. Call to viator on Tuesday promised us the money would be refunded. It's now Wednesday afternoon and no sign of the refund. And now I've got this email asking me to "Review my recent trip." I'm sure the trip would have been fun if I had actually been on it. I just noticed a blub on this review site that says "please do not use this link for customer support - our customer support team does not receive these questions." It appears to me that customer support does not receive ANY questions.
awesome ! on the way out we saw whales and spinner dolphins . mack and his deck hand were very inform. and friendly . you could tell they really enjoyed there job. my daughter and i felt safe and had alot of fun. are video tape was good but not great. over all five star !
Fantastic!! Would do it again. Lots of sharks up close to the cage!!! Got some great photos and footage with our waterproof camera.
Unfortunately this tour was cancelled by the tour operator due to weather. However Viator customer support was helpful, thorough and quick in both responding to our emails and have indicated they would refund the monies after they confirmed with the tour operator that the cancellation was not at our request.
-Not able to review the tour as it was cancelled -due to weather. However Viator customer service was excellent. They were helpful, quick and verified that they would refund the monies after they confirmed that the cancellation was not due to our request but rather due to unforseen circumstances.
Very professional and enjoyable. Felt safe the whole time. So many sharks!
Excellent and such a rush, do not forget the seasick pills. If you need prescription lense for goggles go to 'Snorkel Bobs' they can rent them and fit them in a few minutes.
December is not the time for smooth water! Our first trip was canceled due to rough water, but they rescheduled and it worked out that we were able to go. Arriving at the "dive" site it was not long until the first fin was seen! This was before anyone was even in the cage! Being in the first group to get in the cage was so exciting. There were sharks everywhere---wow! Scary but at the same time awsome. This is a great way to observe sharks while being completely safe.
Good time, Not for people likely to get sea sick. Very Friendly staff.
Really fun! It's not as freak-y as it sounds, the whole experience was a blast and the tour guides were great. There were probably over 30 sharks in the water, it was insane! Definitely try to go in the morning if you can though, the water is a lot calmer which make it easier to Snorkel.
This was a very cool and worthwhile experience! The trip was approximately 2 hours long and each group of 5 or 6 got approximately 20 minutes in the cage. There were a fair number of sharks swimming around the cage at all times. The crew at North Shore Shark Adventures was very good and provided interesting information about the sharks. The ocean swells were fairly large the day we went, so take sea-sickness medication before leaving land if you have issues with it!
