Choose from Four Options
- $215 for a 10-hour shark-cage diving experience for one ($250 value)
- $430 for a 10-hour shark-cage diving experience for two ($500 value)
Divers meet bright and early at 6 a.m. for a quick orientation before sailing up to 35 miles from shore and getting into an anodized-aluminum-pipe cage that allows for up-close and personal views of sharks, as well as other marine life, which may include whales or marlins.
Diver certification is not required if divers intend to only use snorkeling gear: a mask, fins, snorkel, and wetsuit. (These items can be rented on site for an additional fee of $25.) Guests choosing to use scuba gear will have to show their diver certification card.
- $80 for a 3.5-hour sunset cruise for two ($100 value)
- $160 for a 3.5-hour sunset cruise for four ($200 value)
Cruises, which launch between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., allow passengers to glimpse a gorgeous sunset as well as the maritime culture of the area. BYOB is permitted. Captains can motor around Narragansett Bay, offering commentary on historical landmarks, modern yachts, and shoreline lighthouses that date back hundreds of years, like the Dutch Island Light.
Alternatively, customers can opt for the Block Island cruise, which offers sightseeing along the Rhode Island Sound, including commercial tugboats, cruise ships, huge tankers, and lobster boats. Passengers may also see and learn about the Block Island Southeast Lighthouse.
Snappa Charters specializes in giving people the thrill of their lives. This boat charter team runs shark-cage-diving tours, where patrons can swim with blue, mako, and basking sharks from the safety of an anodized-aluminum cage in the water or from a snorkeling platform above the water. To be the hunter instead of the hunted, attend a sports-fishing excursion and seek out sea bass, cod, and fluke. Those wanting more time on the water can also go on whale-watching, lighthouse-spotting, and birding tours. Snappa also happily organizes private boating excursions for fun corporate events or bachelor parties for bachelors wondering exactly how many fish are in the sea.
