BLUE SHARK AND MAKO DIVING IN PICO
THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS DISCOVERY OF THE DECADE

UNPARALLED SUCCESS RATES
Between mid-July and mid-October the success of our Shark Expeditions is near 100%.

All our successful trips attracted Blue sharks but, with new insight, we have now improved our luck with the Mako too. In 2010, Makos were present in 30% of our trips but during 2011 we improved this encounter rate to 65% of our Shark Expeditions.


UNPARALLED CONDITIONS FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
Between mid-July and mid-October the visibility ranges between 20 and 30 metres over the seamounts where we dive with pelagic sharks.
On many occasions, though, visibility can be even better.

This factor, along with the excellent light, helps to create superb conditions for outstanding photography and filmmaking.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

While success rates are very high for every activity included in the program and weather is at its best between mid-July and mid-October, you should be prepared to be flexible and let us organise the activities according to our experience and, most importantly, safety requirements.


OUR GUARANTEES
