Enjoy 3 hours alongside the world famous Shark Addicts crew for a fully immersive and educational experience like no other. You will have the opportunity to come face to face with natures most highly evolved predators as we spend the day alongside numerous shark species without the confines of cages or obstructions. No prior experience or certifications are necessary.
