Head out to the open ocean to meet two of the most beautiful shark species. The cobalt blue color of the Blue Shark and silver bluish color of the Mako shark will mesmerize you.

Blue Sharks are inquisitive and attentive to your every move. They are magnificently streamlined and can reach lenghts of up to 3.5 meters. The more elusive mako shark will dart in and out showing off its agility and speed which it uses to catch its prey. They are more robustly built than the Blues and can reach sizes of up to 4 meters and 700kg.
