Here the skipper of the day gives a short lecture on the Great White Shark. He explains how you'll work with the sharks in the area. We spend 2 to 4 hours at sea, depending on how often the sharks visit the boat. Be sure to ask as many questions as you can think up! Diving and viewing your cage takes 5 people at a time. Each person spends about 20 minutes in the cage.
