2019 Dates: Jan 30-Feb 6, Mar 1-6, Apr 19-26, August 17-24 (Ross University trip, but all are welcome!), Oct 3-9, Nov 23-30
Challenge yourself by encountering these fascinating creatures in their natural habitat, knowing that sharks are top marine predators and physically far superior to humans. Once you have learned to interpret shark behavior, you’ll put your own fear / anxiety aside and be comfortable with sharks. In addition, you’ll be able to enjoy the entire encounter and to act accordingly and to respond on the basis of scientific knowledge learned, rather than on the basis of presumptions and fear. In this way, your shark encounters are pleasant, incredibly fascinating and safe.
*Ross University students will have the opportunity for additional education tours around the island!
