We went free diving/snorkelling to see the sharks. It was an amazing experience. The dive master clearly explained the procedure and it is all very safe. When you come to the open sea and the bait with fresh sardines is thrown into the water, hundreds of sharks are immediately around. Amazing sight. First you are a bit afraid to jump into the water, but when you are in the sea and you see a 2m shark swimming by, you know that this is something you will never forget.

The waves were really choppy but that didn’t hinder the experience. Great service and an awesome coach. Made it easy and fun to learn. Thank you
A life experience!
