    Thoroughly enjoyable experience riding the sand dunes. The fat bikes were amazing and so easy to ride. Dave you made this experience so enjoyable and entertaining - we loved your facts, stories and knowledge of the area. We would definitely recommend and do again!

    Super! That was an awesome experience! Make sure to get sea sickness medicine if you are weak for that… Safe and secure diving

    I spent five months working as a volunteer for White Shark Projects and it was one of the most incredible experiences I have had in my life. As somebody planning to pursue marine biology as a career, it was an invaluable insight into the workings of conservation and marine ecosystems, and gave me critical knowledge concerning sharks from people who have spent many many years in the field. Every crew member is very helpful and welcoming, it would be impossible to dislike the experience even if you get seasick. 10/10, will definitely return in the future.

    We had a really great day with Dyer Island doing their Shark Cage dive. It was well organised and we were fully briefed on the conservation work by a qualified and interesting Marine Biologist.
    We each spent about 30 minutes in the cage with several large Copper Sharks to provide continuous ‘entertainment’. After that we watched from the top deck for about an hour. Perfect photo opportunities.
    Very warm wetsuits and plenty of skilled crew to help. Delicious snacks too.
    A very worthy cause to support and what fun we had. We are pretty comfortable in the water but maybe worth saying we are well into our 70s so don’t think you can’t do this. It felt very safe.
    It felt 100% safe
    Delicious homemade soup and bread in their fabulous restaurant afterwards.
    Thank you. We think you are doing a fantastic job.

    I've always been scared to death of sharks and wanted to overcome this by swimming with them (in a cage). If you're in a similar position as me, this is the place to do it... the cages face the open water, but the back of the cage faces the boat, which I liked. Also, you can hold onto bars INSIDE the cage, which means your fingers aren't exposed to sharks. You also don't need a scuba certification, you just hold your breath and dunk your head underwater... all of this was super helpful in getting me in the water. These guys did everything right... recommended.

    My daughter and I had a very good experience, but you need to make sure that you go with the right expectations. First - We saw two sharks but there are no guarantees. Second - The Boat ride was choppy, this is NOT a trip if you are the slightest bit prone to sea sickness (about 20% of the passengers on our trip got seasick and didn't participate in the diving). Third - The food and pre-trip videos were all good but not great (don't expect luxury). Go with the right expectations and hope for the best. We would absolutely do it again. The hotel pick up was very good.

    The morning started off with a delay on the sharklady's end, which made the group of 18 a tit bit restless... But boy were we in for a treat! X2 juvenile great whites of 2.5m in size as well as x2 massive stingrays (family of the shark) came out to play on the day!!! A BIG THANK YOU to the skipper and crew for your friendly hospitality. I will definitely be coming back with a few friends👌
