Shark Dive Montauk

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Jaws is a movie, people. Put your fear of staring into those dark, beady eyes to bed with Montauk’s Sea Turtle Dive Charters, which has allowed brave New Yorkers get this close to mako, thresher, blue and hammerhead sharks in the open water for 12 years. After slipping into your wet suit and gear (all included as part of your dive package and orientation; there’s no scuba certification necessary), you, your instructors and five other brave souls take the two-hour trip out to shark territory, where the crew chums the water to attract what you came to see. You then step into a two-person aluminum cage with your instructor and are lowered into the water for up to two 30-minute sessions, during which you’re circled by as many as four sharks at once. (Don’t worry—the anodized -aluminum-pipe cage is hella safe.) The journey is BYO-drinks-and-grub—we suggest a shot of something strong before you submerge.
