Your captain will anchor near Dyer Island to maximize your chances of a shark encounter from the safety of the cage, while the onboard marine biologist explains what the animals’ behavior means.

Hi there! Thank you for taking your time for this wonderful and detailed review! It's a shame that you won't be able to join us for the Birkenhead memorial on the 25th and 26th of February, but you can already start planing for next year!
