Located a short boat ride from shore is a pristine dive site where reef sharks and nurse sharks abound. This is a great place to see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat.

The dive site is a free drop down to a reef located at about 25 meters. The water is crystal clear and visibility is usually excellent. The reef sharks are usually found patrolling the reef, while the nurse sharks are more likely to be found resting on the sand.

The sharks are not aggressive and are used to seeing divers. However, it is important to respect them and maintain a safe distance. Never touch a shark, and never swim over or between them.

This is a great opportunity to see these amazing creatures up close and learn more about them. With our experienced guides, you will be able to enjoy a safe and unforgettable shark diving experience.

This is a half day tour and is only available in the mornings. Must be Advanced Diver to participate. Minimum of 2 divers needed for the trip to go out.

The shark dive is the only diving we do that is on the Atlantic side of the country. As such it is subject to sea conditions. We suggest you book this on one of your first days here so that if we need to reschedule due to weather we have time to do so.
