Shark Adventure 2-tank dive
Stuart Cove’s Shark Adventure™ is a 2-tank dive program which introduces thrill seeking divers to wild sharks and provides you a close up look at these magnificent and misunderstood creatures. You will dive either the combination of “Shark Wall” and “The Arena” or “The Runway”.
Your first dive is a “Free Swim” with the sharks on a magnificent wall. The sharks will follow you throughout the dive because we are close to our feeding site and they know the dinner bell will ring soon. However, no bait is exposed on this dive. This keeps the sharks curious and creates a very natural encounter for divers – just as you would encounter a shark in the wild. Your second dive is a shark feeding dive. Unlike ordinary dives – you will spend this dive kneeling on the sand bottom. Divers form a semicircle in front of our professional shark feeder who will place a bait box. Your feeder utilizes this bait box and a pole spear to control the release of food which influences the sharks behavior. While novice shark divers may not notice it – during the shark feeding dives your feeder tries to keep the sharks in a “polite” feeding posture. However be warned – the sharks will come close – very close – but they are more interested in the bait than you! Dozens of 5-6 foot Caribbean Reef sharks swim amongst everyone and come within touching distance of all of the divers (although no touching is allowed!). A video and photos are taken on each dive and are available to watch and purchase once back at the dive shop. High quality digital prints are also available for purchase at the Fin Photo Center or online following your trip.
Included: Your program includes complimentary round-trip transfers to and from your hotel, and the use of tanks, weights and weight belts. Your boat comes with fresh drinking water and ice.
Excluded: Dive Gear and Wetsuit, snacks, and other beverages besides water, and tips to crew.
