Our aim is for you to experience your great white shark breaching or cage diving trip in a natural environment, putting sharks first with our “first do not harm approach”, and managing our environmental footprint as much as possible.

Testimonials
I did a lot of research on different dive companies and the thing that really stood out with ASEC from the others was the focus on small groups (max 12 people), only -3 divers in the cage at a time, and most importantly, ASEC uses regulator breathing so you don’t have to hold your breath in the cage.
