Most common sightings include Oceanic Whitetip Sharks, Silkies, Hammerheads and Grey Reef Sharks.

A rarely seen Tiger Shark was also spotted in the south early in July.

There’s been a slight increase in prices due to higher airfares, coming into effect from July 27th.

Currently, there’s availability on all four blue o two boats – blue Fin, blue Horizon, blue Melody and blue Voyager – starting from £849.
