“Amazing experience” shark diving with ASEC
Reviewed 26 August 2014NEW
We were attracted to Rob & his crew because we wanted to be part of a small group & also the responsible way your experience is managed. Other tour companies seemed to want as many people on their vessel as possible & once offshore had little regard for the well being & long term effect that human contact has on Great Whites. ASEC don’t promote the use of chum so whilst that means you may have to be a little patient for your first sighting it also means you can view the sharks in a more natural environment (& hopefully for many more years to come).
Obviously safety is their main concern so our original trip was cancelled due to bad weather but Karen kept in contact with us & got us on the first available trip once the weather had cleared up.
The dive itself was fantastic with respirators allowing you to view for longer. The boat & all the equipment you need was spotless & obviously well looked after. Whilst not in the cage take time to chat to Rob & learn more about these fantastic animals from a man who has many facts & stories to share.
Whilst Rob & his crew will give you the best experience possible you must remember you are in the hands of mother nature – listen to their advice & take travel sickness tablets (if you don’t own a pair of sea legs you WILL need to). Also be prepared to be patient. You may get lucky & see sharks straight away but you’re more likely to have to wait for a while. Put your trust in Rob & he’ll find them.
The best possible way to view Great Whites in their natural environment is with ASEC.
