What goes on during a shark dive?
This dive is a two-tank dive. Your first dive will typically be a free swim with the sharks at a dive site named the Shark Wall. This wall is located right next to one of the feeding sites used on this dive, so when the boat pulls up the sharks know its feeding time. The second dive is a feeding dive with the feeding done by the shark feeder. This dive can get really exciting as the sharks seek out their free meal.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but UNEXSO Shark Dive is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
