You’ll learn that the sharks are just curious in a controlled environment. They are NOT there to eat you. The Scuba Diver Dive master will be below while the skipper and qualified Master Free Diver will be with you on the surface.
As with Free Diving the reef, Free Divers are generally placed on the same boat as scuba divers (unless there’s a group of 8 or more), meaning that we have support from the bottom and top.
The launches are done the same as the scuba diving boats, with a rubber duck / zodiac / rib which takes a maximum of 10 divers. All our launches are done through the Umkomaas River Mouth or from the beach. Free Divers drop into the water at our own time after the divers have dropped, doing as many immersions as we’d like.
