Know Before You Go – North Shore Shark Cage Adventures

Being prepared is half the battle right? When traveling, there is a lot to be prepared for and when you are heading out for an adventure, you are going to want to be ready for your big day out. When you head out for an adventure like diving with sharks, there is a lot of important information to take in and having a little advanced knowledge will help you to be ready for your time at sea. So, what exactly do you need to know before you head out to sea for a North Shore Shark Cage Adventure? Let’s find out.

The Sharks
This is a shark tour after all, and you are going to want to see these graceful creatures up close. Once in the water, you are protected by a specially designed shark cage that keeps them out and keeps you in. But, the thrill of seeing these creatures is incredible, and your heart will be racing the entire time. It is not everyday you get to see a shark in its natural habitat and just the site of them will be enough to make you rethink entering the ocean.

What to Bring
This is not one of those adventures that last for many hours. Instead, you will be out at sea for a couple of hours, and you really don't need much. Some choose to bring a bag with water and snacks, sunblock, sunglasses, a hat, and something to cover up with. It can get cold at sea, especially after you’ve been in the water and are heading back towards the island with the wind blowing. You will also want to bring motion sickness medicine, though you will want to read the directions and start taking as recommended.

The Boat
Some are surprised to see that this is a relatively small boat. This is an intimate tour and the vessel seats around 12 passengers, so there will not be many others along with you. The shark cage attaches to the boat so there is no risk of floating away.

Staying Safe
Sharks are incredible creatures but as with any wild animal, they are highly unpredictable. For those that are unsure of entering the water, you can choose to stay on the boat where you can still see sharks. If you enter the water, be sure to keep your hands, feet, arms, legs, fingers, and head inside the cage. As mentioned previously, they cannot get in, though you will easily be able to stick something through the bars. Stay safe and keep everything inside.
