Is it ethical?
Yes! Shark cage diving has enabled large amounts of research to be conducted in the aim to conserve the marine biodiversity, particularly The Great White Shark. Every trip has a dedicated marine biologist on board offering a crash-course in marine biology, educating you about the trends, traits, and troubles of the endangered Great White Shark and our other amazing marine species within this impressive ecosystem.

Very well organized and well run organization, big emphasis on safety and eco-friendliness. They clearly care about shark conservation and conduct research as well as generate revenue for their conservation studies and projects. Every shark fin souping eating person should visit this place and reform their eating habits as these are amazing creatures and are an essential part of the food chain. The sharks were great and there were at least six that we saw including a large stingray. The water was cold but the 7mm wetsuit made it tolerable, we each had about 20-30 minutes in the cage. Although I think I got the best pictures standing on the deck of the boat. Memorable experience.
