Forget the other options and go with Adventure Bay. Booked in a spur of the moment bucket list trip and travelling solo I didn't know what to expect but I left the weekend with the most unforgettable experience ever. Tip: I recommend purchasing the additional transfers between your accommodation and the charters if possible: super friendly and personable driver and... More

It was a perfect day! We were welcomed by friendly staff and watched a beautiful sun rise as we headed out on this long awaited adventure. On the way, dolphins shadowed us for a while, close enough to see very clearly. Not long after we arrived, I was standing on deck by the side of the boat and a very... More

Hi Tanya, thanks for the great review! At Adventure bay we don't agree with baiting to attract sharks as it can cause harm to them. We would much prefer to see them in their natural state as they are quite majestic creatures and we're glad you agree! Feel free to come back and join us for a swim with the... More

This trip had been on my list of Must-Dos for a while and I'm glad we picked Adventure Bay Charters. We had a perfect mid-Winter day to go all the way to the South Neptune Islands (passing a Navy submarine and several dolphins on the way). The crew were great - obviously love what they do and really happy to... More

What a waste of money and time. 3 day drive from Jervis Bay to see nothing but the back of a Great White, people that went on the same day with another charter saw heaps with sharks came close to the cage ... Don't waste your time, you will see more on the news or on Fox.

Swim with the Great Whites was the 3rd of the top 3 days for us. Adventure Bay Charters is definitely a top notch company that cares about the environment and the sharks. They had a new boat that provides not only a cage, but a 6 person dry submersible that sits next to the cage for those that don't want... More

Thanks so much for the review! Glad you and your family had a great time with us. It's great having the Aqua Sub as well as the cage so more people can view the sharks at once and have the opportunity to remain dry.

An absolutely amazing experience, one of my highlights during my stay in australia. Don't forget to bring some pills against sea sickness, as you drive about 2 hours on the open sea to the place where you jump into the cages. The trip lasts a whole day and you can enjoy a few "dives" in groups of 4 for about... More

Thanks for the review and it's awesome that we were one of the highlights of your trip to Australia! With a bigger cage we can now fit 6 people in the water and as a new addition we now also have an Aqua Sub, a glass viewing pod where 6 people can view the sharks underwater while staying completely dry....

My husband, friend and I did the cage shark dive on Saturday 3rd Jan and I can honestly say that this is one of the best experiences I have ever had and was a brilliant way to start the year!

Went out on New Years Day and had a blast. The crew were professional and friendly serving food and drinks all day and seemed to genuinely love their job. Saw plenty of sharks (3 at once at one point). The cage itself is a thrill but the underwater sub is also great for those not wanting to get wet. Make... More

Thanks for your review and for choosing to spend new years day with us! Good advice with the sea sickness tablets too, taking them the night before tends to be a big help! We've got some great photos of the Sharks from January 1st if you'd like to check them out on our Adventure Bay Charters Flickr page. Thanks again... More
