Shark Cage Diving Experience
With no diver qualification required, Great White Shark cage diving is one of the most exhilarating and memorable experiences you can have in the ocean, and is must-do for anyone visiting South Australia! This is a rare opportunity to see the majestic and endangered 'Great White' in its natural environment.
Board the boat first thing in the morning and enjoy the journey to the Neptune Islands, often accompanied by pods of dolphins & even the odd whale in season. The use of bait will lure in the sharks and you will spend approximately 45 minutes of cage viewing face to face with the amazing Great White Sharks. The crystal clear waters provide spectacular viewing from the boat, so you don't have to be in the water to experience the thrill of a Great White Shark! You can also watch the underwater action from onboard the boat with live streaming from the cameras mounted on the shark cage.
