Experience an encounter with the fastest shark in the ocean: the MAKO SHARK! The encounter with the Mako can differ from 15 minutes upon even 3 hours. The size of the Mako can vary from 150 lbs (6 feet) to the largest one we have seen so far: 800 lbs! (12 feet).
Our cage for the dive with the Mako is constructed of an aluminum pipe and a solid bar stock. The cage is floated on the surface, or 3 to 4 feet under the surface. This depends on the sea condition. Two to three guests at a time, switching every 30 minutes, can enter the cage by a hatch on the top of the cage which is fed air by hoses connected to the tanks aboard the boat.
