Highlights

  • See native wildlife in their natural environment
  • Free port pickup and drop-off included
  • Close encounter with wildlife

There are currently four sites where you can dive with the sharks. You'll dive either the combination of 'Shark Wall' and 'The Arena' or the combination of 'Shark Wall North' and 'The Runway'. At either location, you'll encounter a gathering of Caribbean Reef Sharks on a consistent basis.

Your first dive is a 'Free Swim' with the sharks on a magnificent wall. The sharks will follow you throughout the dive because you'll be close to the feeding site and they know that dinner time is soon. However, no bait is exposed on this dive. This keeps the sharks curious and creates a very natural encounter for divers - just as you would encounter a shark in the wild.

Your second dive is a shark-feeding dive. Unlike ordinary dives, you'll spend this dive kneeling on the ocean floor. Divers form a semi-circle in front of the professional shark feeder who'll place a bait box on the bottom. Your feeder utilizes the bait box and a pole spear to control the release of food that influences the shark's behavior. Watch exactly how the shark feeder keeps the sharks in a 'polite' feeding posture. The sharks will come very close but they are more interested in the bait than you!

Fantastic and the people at Stuart's were so helpful and definitely on their "a" game!

Wow! That's what my husband and I said after this tour. We absolutely loved the experience. The crew was fun, friendly, and very good at ensuring we were safe and had a good time. It sounds a little frightening, but it is really beautiful to watch the sharks and they don't even know you are there.
