Mike has been diving Pinnacles as a speciality for the past 7 years with over 1500 Logged dives on the pinnacle.
We concentrate on smaller groups for the best experience in viewing the sharks in their natural environment.
There are a few dive sites in the world where you are able to see so many different types of shark all on one dive.
For example, 50 hammerheads, tigers, bull sharks all on the same dive amongst the Devil and Angel rays to add the same dive.
For specialized shark packages only( no reef dives or students) Blowing Bubbles is your best choice.
