Number of dives
We plan at least two dives per day (except travel days), but an exact number of dives cannot be given. It all depends on weather conditions and amount of time spent with sharks. On this expedition, shark time has priority over diving time.
These excursions are only offered at peak times of shark sighting's during the summer. But there are NO GUARNTEE'S that you will see a shark, bear, whale or other species. These are wild animals in the open ocean and on land. They are free to travel vast distances at any given time. Weather, food sources and other unknown factors may bring animals to arrive/depart the area sooner or arrive/depart later in the summer.
Special Dietary Restrictions
Please give us advance notice if you have any food allergies. We will do our best to accommodate you within reason, but are limited to Valdez, AK for any special food items. With prior notice, we will be better able to serve you.

There is no decompression chamber in our area and medical services can be hours away depending on weather conditions. Divers looking for dangerous stunts or making deep dives are asked to stay home. Sharks can be unpredictable and guests choose to swim without the use of a cage of their own free will. DAN Insurance and proof of "C" card certification is required for all divers. No exceptions.
At time of reservation, a 25% deposit is required. 3 months before your trip another 25% is due. And the remaining 50% is due 30 days prior to your arrival date.
