Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Start with a pickup from Nassau cruise terminal after your ship docks. Then, travel in an air-conditioned vehicle to the dive center, where you’ll receive your included tanks, weights and weightbelt, and rent your wetsuit and other equipment (own expense).

When you’re ready, make your way to the first of the two diving spots, where you can get up close and personal with Caribbean reef sharks. The exact sites visited depend on weather conditions, but you’ll dive at either ‘The Arena’ and the ‘Shark Wall’ or ‘The Runway’ and ‘Shark Wall North.’

Your first dive is a ‘free swim’ on one of the walls. The sharks stay close to you during this dive as you’re close to the feeding site. No bait is exposed, but the proximity to the feeding area keeps the sharks curious, creating a very natural encounter.

Your second dive is a shark-feeding dive. Form a semi-circle with your fellow divers around a bait box on the ocean floor and watch as sharks come up to feed. A professional shark feeder controls the release of food to influence the sharks’ behavior, allowing you to witness first-hand a shark in its natural environment.

Please see the Important Info tab for more information on participant requirements.

Worry-Free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to Nassau for this activity. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

Diving up close and personal with...
Katherine S
, Sep 2015
Diving up close and personal with sharks has been at the top of my husband's bucket list for years and so we were VERY excited to find this tour and give it a try! I can happily say that we were thrilled with the experience! Both the initial dive, where we swam around a wreck and checked out some of the sharks we would later see even closer during the feeding, and the shark arena dive were great. Nothing can prepare you for how awe inspiring the shark arena is though! Talk about a surreal experience. Shark loving divers NEED to do this activity!!

Wow! That's what my husband and I said after this tour. We absolutely loved the experience. The crew was fun, friendly, and very good at ensuring we were safe and had a good time. It sounds a little frightening, but it is really beautiful to watch the sharks and they don't even know you are there.
