You’ll be enjoying a cocktail by the pool or meeting new friends below or above the water line before you know it!

Intro Dive with the Reef Sharks
Imagine this: An introduction to SCUBA with our team of expert divers holding your hand in your first diving experience with Reef Sharks. Not everyone gets to do their first introductory dive with a reef shark or two! Family and friends will be impressed and you wont be able to stop talking about it!
The Awakening Shark Dive
The elusive Bull Shark! Other shark species sighted in the Awakening Shark Dive site include Tiger Sharks, Lemon Sharks, Tawny Nurse Sharks and Black and White tip reef sharks.
