Meet your guide at the dive center at the Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach hotel and get fitted with your scuba gear.
During a safety briefing, hear about the types of sharks you’ll see underwater and the procedures you need to follow to dive with them. Then, jump aboard the dive boat and set out on the open sea.
After roughly 15 minutes, arrive at your dive spot, known as Shark Alley, and follow your guide into the water, sinking 50 feet (15 meters) to the sea floor. Watch as colorful fish and reef sharks surround you, and then see how your guide gently massages a shark on its nose, causing it to become calm and relaxed.
In this temporary state, the shark won’t move and you’ll be able to get an up-close look at it. Your guide will repeat this process multiple times, allowing you to study several of these graceful and misunderstood creatures.
When the time comes, return to your boat on the surface. Your excursion then concludes with a drop-off back at the original departure point.
All participants must be certified divers. Also note that one normal dive must be completed in advance and prior to participating in this shark dive (not included in the price). Please note tour can be purchased by Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Hotel guests only.
