Can I take pictures/video? 2018-07-28T08:43:38+00:00

The Shark Addicts team does not allow GoPro/Action Camera devices during the diving experience for the safety of its customers. Sharks have the innate ability to track and locate electrical impulses in the water. Due to the handheld nature of these small cameras, it is not safe to have them firmly grasped in your hands. The Shark Addicts team is not responsible for lost possessions and cannot retrieve equipment due to the extreme depths of the ocean floor.  If you possess professional grade dome equipment and wish to bring said equipment on a dive, the Shark Addicts team can approve your request at Contact@SharkAddictsDiving.com
