Saint Martin Whale Shark Diving Things to Do Tourist Attractions

Ocean Explorers Famous Shark Dive in St Maarten

We are lucky to be one of the very few places in the world who runs this unique dive. We have the fantastic opportunity to show you how amazing these creatures are!

During this dive you will have the chance to see these incredible animals interacting with Jeferson, who has been working closely with our sharks for over 13 years. The majority of the sharks you will see are Caribbean reef sharks ranging from 3 to 9 feet long. Occassionally we are also joined by one or two curious nurse sharks. They are free to come and go as they please so we never know how many sharks will show up. But throughout your dive we promise you'll be impressed by these beautiful animals, and with Jef's photography skills we aim to capture your up close and personal experience as best we can!

We are very passionate about these beautiful creatures and our goal is to put YOU in contact with them so you might learn to love and respect them and perhaps, in this way, you will share our passion for protecting them. Over 100 million sharks are killed every year due to overfishing, unsustainable fishing methods and for shark fin soup consumers in a process called "Finning". What this means is that sharks are caught, their fins cut off, and then they are thrown back into the ocean. It is a brutal death where the shark is left to suffocate, not being able to push oxygen past it's gills.

They need our protection! Humans are their biggest predator and sharks are on a path to extinction!

Sharks are the oceans apex predators, able to switch their main source of prey depending on what fish is abundant, and keep our oceans clean by eating sick and weak fish to keep the schools healthy. Without sharks our coral reefs will eventually die damaging the entire underwater ecosystem

During this dive you would be at maximum depth of 60ft on a designated spot of sand from which you have a front row seat in watching our instructor interact with the sharks, having them swim directly overhead and around you. The dive typically lasts 30 to 40 minutes in the afternoons and is a 20 minute boat ride from our shop.

To be able to participate you need to have been diving within the last year and have previously dove with us.
