Many shark species are being pushed towards extinction through uncontrolled, destructive fishing methods. The sheer lack of compassion, understanding and basic awareness people have of these animals is enabling the slaughter of millions of sharks each year to continue unabated.

We view the Cage Diving experience as a vital way to connect people with healthy shark populations. The activity is intended to increase the level of focus, awareness and compassion the public have for sharks.

A typical shark cage dive involves getting into a wetsuit or a costume, donning a mask and climbing into a floating stianless steel cage with between 5 and 20 sharks gliding gracefully by, the cage walls.

Is it safe to get out the cage?
Before answering the question you must understand a few things about sharks. Sharks are not Big Cats! A common mistake most people make when thinking about sharks is that they are just like lions and leopards, that will attack you given the chance. Terrestrial predators (big cats) are designed to hunt using strength, big claws, gravity and the hunt usually involves a chase and a struggle before the prey is subdued and consumed.
Contrary to popular belief, sharks have excellent eyesight. Sharks are able to clearly distinguish between colour, shape and contrast, just as well as humans. This means sharks are able to inspect us visually without having to risk making contact with an animal that they do not recognise or associate with any common prey group.
Pelagic (open ocean) sharks live in an environment (zero gravity and currents) which enables them to travel vast distances with little effort. This means the animals have no need for established territories and no need to aggressively protect a particular area. This translates through to the animals overall behaviour which means the flight instinct within them is far stronger than an almost non-existent fight instinct.
