Shark cage diving - OMG. Amazing. Great boat, clean and new. Great food and most important GREAT WHITE SHARKS. You can go in the cage (even my 11 year old did it) or you can go in the underwater viewing area. Fantastic. Only problem is it is a long boat ride and you can really get sea sick. Take lots...

Hi Megan, Thank you for taking some time to let us know what you think! Glad you guys had a great trip- we'd love to have you back anytime. Great tip about the medication - we always suggest those who are prone to sea-sickness take a kwell the night before - and bring some for the trip. Ginger tablets are... More

Absolutely amazing day, wish I could do it again! The crew were amazing, looking after our every need, offering coffee and food all through the day! Spotted dolphins on the way to the Neptune islands, and saw 4 sharks circling the cage at once! The trip was eco-friendly, no bait was used - just music, and we had one shark... More

We had a great trip out my husband and I. We manged to see a couple of sharks and then i became ill. Thought the unlimited diving and aqua sub are a good set up everyone gets a chance to view sharks and you arent crammed on the boat. Thought the eco friendly way of attracting sharks was good instead... More

This would be of been a 5 star review without question until the very end of the trip which made me feel like leaving a 2 or 3 star review at most!! left a generous 4 star in the end. The reason for this: on our way home one of the crew members came around asked for an additional $100... More

I absolutely have to tell you about this one. When you hear the words 'once in a lifetime experience' this definitely applies here.

What a great charter. Thankyou to the operators Matt and Matt. We took our older parents out for a mothers day outting and both were very impressed with the professional service and being able to use the submersible to see all the action, they cater for all your needs; the operators were more than accommodating and helpful with my parents....

My friend and I traveled to Port Lincoln at the end of April to go shark diving for her 30th birthday. Due to the recent Orca attack in February there were less sharks in the area. After an early start the boat trip to South Neptune Islands took about 3.5 hours. The scenery is just amazing. This is just a... More

It was a long day starting before Dawn and finishing after Sunset but that meant we got to see both out on the water. The crew was amazing. Super informed and very well set up for the day.
