Great White Adventures Shark divers InternationalGolden Gate expeditions Shark cage dives Hayward California
Went on the trip to the Farallons Sept. 21, 2013. I should have known when as we approached the islands I heard over the radio, "the show has to start some time this year" My friend and I did two 30 minute dives looking at murky green water. The "decoys" they deploy are thrown out and eventually wind up floating next to the boat. No effort is made to entice the sharks. I realize that there are regulations to protect the sharks and the people studying them. I am all for the protection of both the researchers and the animals, but, if the show has not happened you should let people know before they invest money in a trip. Flights, hotels, cars, etc...
Aside from that, your continental breakfast is a cup of coffee from a thermos like at 7-Eleven and a bagel. Gourmet lunch is some vegetable stew (which was pretty good) and a deli plate from Costco with some small rolls. Not that anyone was eating due to the 4-5ft swells that where rocking the boat. Then of course there were the flies. It was like mosquitos in the Northeast at a BBQ. They did finally move the boat, but they were back in about 10 minutes. I only hope that some of the people already booked will read this and get their money back. I truly cannot express in words what a ripoff this trip is.
That being said, it seems their other trip is outstanding. Maybe they should make it more affordable and concentrate on that.
