Diving from a liveaboard is also about other luxuries like onboard entertainment and comfort, plus the addition of non-diving activities to do in-between dives.
White Shark Café is in the Pacific Ocean about half way between Baja California coast and Hawaii. Great white sharks from the Farallon Islands near San Francisco, Mexico’s Guadalupe Island and Hawaii migrate along the Great White Highway to this deep ocean zone and reside there from April to July.

The main benefits of using a rebreather include no bubbles and reduced noise levels so you get closer to marine life, longer no-stop decompression dive times, reduced dehydration as the gas breathed is moist and improved safety with a reduced risk of decompression sickness.
You can dive on a rebreather for between 2-3 hours, and your dive time whilst using a rebreather is limited by the scrubber duration. Rebreathers are a closed-circuit breathing apparatus for scuba diving as an alternative to a scuba tank and apparatus.
The similarities between snorkeling and scuba diving are they both require a mask, snorkel and fins, together with an exposure suit to match the water temperature. Both allow you to enjoy the underwater world and are taught by all major diving organisations.
