Adventure Bay Charters: Shark Cage Diving with Great White Sharks (1 day tour)
If there is one thing you must add to your bucket list, it has to be shark cage diving with Great Whites!
As the creators of Australia’s first advanced eco certified shark cage diving experience, we offer visitors the once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with the legendary Great White Shark in its natural habitat.
Our full day tour takes you from Port Lincoln marina to ‘shark bay’ at Neptune Island, approximately 70kms south of Port Lincoln, South Australia. On the way, see spectacular scenery as you cruise through the Thorny Passage and expect sightings of inquisitive local dolphins and sea birds.
To ensure we are protecting the natural environment, we use audio sound vibrations to attract the sharks to the boat rather than berley. The benefits of using sound vibration is that it is omnidirectional (that is, it travels in all directions underwater), it’s instantaneous and completely eco friendly – and funnily enough, the Great White shark’s favourite choice of music is the rock tunes from AC/DC – go figure!
When the Great White’s arrive at the boat, you can choose to swim with the sharks from the safety of a hardened steel cage, or take in the thrilling sight from the the world's first shark "Aqua Sub". Un underwater glass viewing area.
