      First class newbie snorkelling activity
      I’ve never been snorkelling and I’m not a strong swimmer. During the whole tour I felt supported and safe. The staff are knowledgeable and supremely competent. Highly recommended.

      Blue Wilderness Shark Dive
      Amazing prep by Jessica to ensure my group of non-swimmers do an exceptional dive in deep ocean with these magnificient aquatic souls. We had a good briefing of dos & don't. Would have given 5 stars except for the case of Dilion their under water go-pro diver was unable to provide us with a decent photo and video coverage. It was very poorly done with complete lack of quality and coverage. What a experience & memory lost....

      Perfect
      From the minute we walked in to the minute we left, we had nothing but the best time ever. The staff are fabulous, Jessica and Charlie were absolutely great with all of us, and the shark sightings were everything and more that we hoped for. A fantastic experience not to be missed. We can highly recommend booking through Blue Wilderness, for a never to be forgotten experience...There’s nothing quite like a shark nudging you to one side!

      Great experience!!!
      It was wonderful adrenaline experience. Our guides were really experienced and their knowledge gave us enough confidence to go into water with without cage. I was lucky to learn so many things about sharks and they behevior. Thank you.

      Gave the phrase,"Swim with the sharks" a whole new meaning!
      We had such a great experience doing the snorkeling with the Sharks. My fiance was not as comfortable leading up to the experience, but once we were in the water he was great. No cage needed! The divers were great and made us both feel comfortable. The training before we went out was really helpful. It was actually peaceful. I felt like we were just watching nature's beauty from a personal point of view. The sharks are definitely HUGE so be mindful of your training, but it was wonderful. There was a point were there was a sea of sharks before us - so surreal! A point of advice I would give to women would be to PULL YOUR HAIR BACK around your hair line. I kept getting water in my goggles because my hair was not pulled back with a sports headband. That was more on me and my curly hair. The company was great and the equipment they gave us was in great condition. I would love to do it again! You don't need the cage, just get in!

      Amazing Crew!!!
      I had the amazing opportunity to go on a shark dive and all I can say is that it was an excellent experience all round. The crew was very diligent in letting you know what to do in the water and while in the water kept a close eye on you so you don't get into trouble. They also introduce you to the "regular" sharks and it's amazing when you see them up close and in person! Thank you!! The next time I am around I definitely want to do this again!!

    Friendly and very professional team... I went on my own and was VERY nervous (I almost couldn't believe I had chosen to do this) but was treated so well by the staff. I'd love to go swimming with sharks again! Definitely a safe environment and they provide you with snacks, soft drinks and warm showers post-diving. Thank you to Charlie, Dillon and Marcus. You'll be seeing me again (hopefully in a more relaxed state of mind)

    What an absolutely incredible experience, myself my wife my two kids aged 11 and 13 and my 80 year mom did a shark dive this morning. After a brief intro by Charlie explaining the do’s and dont’s and some information about these awesome creatures we set out . The sea was quite choppy with some large swells but the skippers handled this beautifully and were out at sea very quickly. Visibility under the water was very good and it was just like the pictures advertised , it’s another beautiful world under the surface , stunning stunning stunning, there were plenty of sharks ranging from 5 ft to a lot larger.

    For my dear old mum she was a bit more comfortable behind bars so she stayed in the cage for the slightly more nervous but still had a great experience. The kids haven’t stopped talking about it since getting out of the water.

    Anybody who is a little hesitant about going swimming with them , please don’t be , it’s an amazing experience you will never ever ever forget. Highly recommended.

    So a huge thank you to Charlie, the Lovely South American lady and the rest of the fantastic crew sorry I didn’t get all your names for a seriously cool day out, and thanks for the lollypop.
