Divers kneel off to the side on the sandy bottom at a depth of 50 feet. Other than providing them a free meal, to which they help themselves, we do not interfere with the sharks or harass them in any way.
The scene also attracts hundreds of crumb eaters - barracuda, grouper, snapper and more - who come to gobble up the leftovers. After the sharks swim away, the divers have an opportunity to look through the sand for fallen shark teeth. There is an extra fee for the shark observation experience, and a minimum number of divers is required.
Outside of the Shark Observation dive, we frequently see sharks on other dives and snorkels along our reef. The types of sharks we most often see here are Caribbean Reef sharks and Nurse sharks, though we are known to also see Black Tips, Lemon, and Silky sharks. Divers are always excited when they spot one of the lone Great Hammerheads on a dive. And very rarely (but they have been seen here) are the Whale Sharks.
