Shark Dive Montauk
2019 Schedule
Blue Water
Shark Dives - Experience the excitement and warm water of
shark cage diving in Montauk, NY. Our regular day shark dives
will take you 15-30 miles south of Long Island where warm
waters from the gulf stream bring an array of life during the
summer months. Sharks, (mako and blue) mahi-mahi, tuna,
whales, ocean sunfish, porpoise and of course sea turtles are
among the creatures you could see on a cage trip.

"A dive off the coast of Montauk in Long Island, New York offers the
chance to see mako, thresher and blue sharks, sometimes a dozen at
a time."
                                             
Kate Rosenbrock   -  Yahoo Travel

The two person cage is made of 1" anodized aluminum pipe
and is fully welded at all seams. Sitting upside down on the
open stern of the Sea Turtle, the cage hinges upright into the
water. Entry and exits are done from  the stern of the boat.  
Once inside, divers are floated back  5' -10' behind the boat
while still attached by a safety cable.

A typical day of cage diving starts with a full briefing and boat
orientation at the dock. Once underway, the trip to the blue
water takes 1-2 hrs. Upon arrival, the crew begins chumming
the water, creating a slick to attract the sharks. This can take
anywhere from 10 min. to several hours. During the wait
everyone is given an opportunity to try out the cage and get
comfortable with all diving procedures. Diving doesn't get
much easier - just bring along a camera! We supply all the
dive gear, including wetsuits. Breathing regulators are
mounted in the cage and comfortable weight harnesses
provide proper buoyancy.
No certifications are required, but
we request that participants are comfortable in the water with
a dive mask and able to swim. The cage will be floated 3' -4'
below the surface depending on sea conditions. Water
temperatures will range from 60 to 80 degrees and visibility
20' to 100'+. The most common sharks seen are Mako and
Blue sharks, but different types are always possible. It's not
uncommon to have 3 or 4 sharks in the water at the same time
and past trips have seen as many as a dozen at the cage. Makos
become more abundant in August. Blue sharks are always the
most prevalent and get over 12'. The amount of dive time you
have depends on when the sharks show up. The average
person will get at least two turns of around 30 min.

"it’s so close I can make out every pore and scratch on its elongated
face."

humans made me realize how lucky we were to spend time with

Alternative Shark Trips - Recent years has shown an
increased interest in the possibility of encountering different
species of sharks off Montauk. Thus, we have decided to offer
private single day and scheduled two day charters that will
focus on different techniques, locations and time frames to
help encounter these sharks.
Great white, hammerhead and
thresher sharks are the species we can target. Expect cooler
water with less visibility on the white and thresher trips. The
hammerhead trips are similar to our mako and blue charters
with longer boat rides offshore. These trips are for the
adventurous spirited.

Two Day Trips - One day of our regular blue and mako dives
and another day devoted to an alternative species. These trips
include an overnight stay on the boat.
See boat details
here.                                               $450

Private Charters - You choose the shark species to target. Six
person max. Contact us for available dates or more info.
                                                                                    $1400
