  • Fin-tastic time aboard SD Expeditions for shark and wildlife viewing!! I’ve gone out with shark-diving operations in various places/shark species. I was extremely impressed with Nick and Mark’s focus on safety, as well as their respect for wildlife. It was clear they love what they do, and, like the rest of us, love sharks! My dive buddies and I were able to spend time in the water observing and photographing several beautiful blue sharks. I’ll never forget the amazing encounters. And icing on the cake, the boat was incredibly comfortable, and the crew provided delicious snacks and sandwiches. We’re already planning our next trip with SD Expeditions. Thank you, Mark and Nick for championing shark conservation and for an incredible trip!
  • I have a major shark obsession and am super stoked to have local company to help with that obsession! SD expeditions was a pleasure to work with and most importantly I felt safe during these wild animal encounters. Customer service was amazing, boat was beautiful and my experience was unforgettable. Thanks guys! Looking forward to seeing you again!
  • SD Expeditions is the best!!! I headed out with three friends yesterday on an SD Expeditions trip to swim with sharks in the open ocean. What an amazing day! We boarded a gorgeous , beautifully maintained yacht - Countershade. On the way out to our offshore destination, Captain Mark did not hesitate to let us investigate anything interesting - we saw at least two gray whales and got to jump in on a kelp paddy. Once we got to our spot offshore, the chumming began. Nick and Mark did a great job attracting gorgeous blue sharks within two hours. Both Nick and Mark went over detailed safety briefings about what to expect. Then in we went! If you haven't swam with a blue shark in open water, you are missing out! These are some of the most gorgeous animals, colored indigo blue contrasted with gleaming white bellies, and dusted in gold glitter on the edges. The sharks were a little shy at first, but gradually became more comfortable around us. We had about two hours in the water with these beauties. When the action started to get a little hectic, Nick had us get back on the boat - I really appreciate his dedication to keeping us as safe as possible. From the boat, we were treated to six sharks circling the boat!! A totally amazing day with a great operation! We will be back soon!
  • My son and I dove with Nick at SD Expeditions for 5 days in March 2018. I found him through reviews such as this and agree with the overwhelmingly positive feedback I read then - Nick is a great guy and he went above and beyond to make sure we had great experiences. Although we had a couple of days with challenging conditions, the diving was great with the highlight of swimming alongside Sevengill Sharks through the kelp forests of La Jolla Cove. I highly recommend SD Expeditions.
  • Incredible!!! Amazing!!! Once in a lifetime! These were some of the quotes that came from my friends during a full day Blue shark tour with SD Expeditions. Nick is the BEST sharkman in the business at sharing his passion for sharks while facilitating the safetest encounter possible. Our trip encounters included time with whales, dolphins, kelp paddies, and of course Blue Sharks. The boat/crew/equipment are all top rate with zero sacrifice on quality. When dealing with the true wild side of ocean animals, why would you want to save a few bucks. Go with the best and remove all doubt about having a great experience. Thanks Nick and Mark.
