This shark dive was great, the shark handler and captain were both very friendly and helpful. Randy, the shark handler/feeder did a great job making everyone comfortable and made it a great experience for all on the boat. He was entertaining above and below the water. If you are considering this experience I highly recommend it and I myself can't wait to get back and do it again!
Because you are very profesional in your work , and the dive master was great
The shark menu to see is just the best!!!
We had probably the perfect day with very little swell, overcast weather, and beautiful creatures. The staff, Captain Lee and dive guide Josh were welcoming, knowledgeable and safe. Even so this type of diving requires a decent amount of experience and control on the boat and underwater.
Great dives. Two full dives with a 13ft Tiger shark inches away.
Bring your fisheye lens because you will get VERY close to the sharks. It’s been almost 3 weeks
since my 6 pack dive, but I’m still dreaming about all the Silky, Lemon, Dusky and Tiger sharks I saw.
Go for the 6 pack - fewer humans, more sharks. I had a wonderful time.
Josh was amazing! He was very patient with me diving with new equipment and getting my weights right. I love the way he handled the sharks and still had his eye on all of are safety. I can’t wait to dive with you all again😎
Crew was helpful, professional, and safe throughout the dive.
Incredible Captain and Crew! Exceptional dive experience!
This is our third time out with Emerald and we could not be any more satisfied with all of our trips with Emerald. Josh and Randy never fail to get the sharks in for some great shots. The outfit is responsible and professional but tons of fun at the same time. I can’t wait till our next outing with them!
Great crew and a fun time. Very experienced with shark handling, felt safe. Would have loved to see other types of sharks buy not the right time of year.
The experience was awesome. I felt the charter was well run and safe. Staff was very experienced and knowledgeable. They were serious dives and fun ones and I felt I was treated like the experienced diver that I was...not overly restricted. My Thanks to the staff.
You and your crew are doing a great job of teaching the public SHARKS are good and not killers.
It was great to be a part of the experience with this species or fish and to have a better understanding of what sharks at really interested in eating, as my friend Tyler would say and I paraphrase - they are like gold fish... we had safe and easy dives with a very focused and precise dive plan...
Best experience you can have in a shark experience for the value. Josh and Randy do a fantastic job. If I can add a thought? Love to see pro photos added as a price upgrade. Id be thrilled to pay extra $30-50 for few photos of me with sharks in background professionally done.
Class act operation. You want to see sharks safely and up close, then Emerald Charters is a must do.
Randy and the Crew always make the whole experience amassing.
Josh and Randy have come up with the safest way of experiencing some of the ocean's best and most exciting predators, and you know they are taking care of you. I felt as safe as possible with these guys while 70 feet underwater surrounded by hungry sharks because they know (and love) these animals better than anyone, and it shows. This is the 3rd time I've done a shark dive with Captain Randy and despite sometimes rough seas, feisty sharks, or my own slow-to-clear ears, he always ensured I'd have a good experience. Be a good, safe diver and listen to their every word and direction, and you will have an unbelievable experience!
I have been diving with Emerald Charters for years, they are my go-to dive operator for great shark encounter diving and this recent trip was no exception. Three full dives each trip with a savvy crew who know the most opportune locations, methods and tactics for finding and bringing in close all variety of sharks make diving aboard The Emerald a simple choice. Plus the topside conversations with guests that range from wide eyed first timers to experienced UW photographers who frequently book with EC for guaranteed results are always entertaining and often fruitful in their own regard. I look forward eagerly to my next Emerald Charters experience and recommend them highly to any EXPERIENCED divers (yes these are definitely Advanced dive conditions) to try them out also!
Excellent experience, as always. It’s a really well-run operation and they always bring the sharks. I’ll be back as often as I can.
there was lots of action with lemon sharks a few lazy nurse sharks and some giant Goliath groupers as we used to call him jewfish which were a little bit overly aggressive. Thanks Randy your well man love you do you remember the old days
Randy and Josh will give you the best experience with the sharks over and over and over. I have been diving Emerald charters for 3 years now and they are by far the best in the business. Thank you again for a wonderful experience with these amazing creatures
People would respect sharks more if they only knew more about them. Thank you.
