Vertigo is a very special experience where divers interact with a healthy school of grey and black tip reef sharks in clear blue water year-round. Photographers will be pleased with the amount and proximity of sharks. The shooting environment is outstanding for wide angle with reef sharks right up in your dome and multiple animals in a single frame, in stunning visibility. The opportunity to shoot at the surface offers an excellent natural light exposure scenario, at depth divers can get as close as they feel comfortable to these animals to get the right shot. Shooting against the sun, out into the blue or down the reef wall allows for nearly unlimited creativity. There is no dive time limit and it’s recommended to save some battery life for some final shots at the surface from the boat. The best shark dive in Micronesia is right here at Vertigo - a full hour of excitement and heart pumping action. A true year-round rain or shine experience that should not be missed
