The staff were very friendly from the word go- our driver was enthusiastic which set a good mood for everyone. The boat left promptly and our skipper and staff were once again very friendly and welcoming. The ride there lasts about an hour. They provided us with fruit/muffins/toasties. There was a large colony of sea lions on the beach. The... More

I organised a trip with Adventure Bay Charter for my wife's birthday as she was keen to do a snorkelling trip to swim with the Sea lions. On the 21st of September we made the trip to Hopkins Island and the Sea lions were very accommodating. My wife was amazed to just how interactive they were. On the way back... More

Received a birthday voucher for the Great White Shark Dive last saturday and had a great time after getting over some sea sickness (which I am prone to) the boat itself did look a bit basic as compared to other dive boats like Calypso but was very adequate and seats where very comfortable and the breakfast service was great (coffee...

A massive thank you to Matt, Brad, Pete, Stacey and Sam! I chose Adventure Bay specifically because they are an advanced eco friendly company that don't bait the water like the other company do, and therefore don't make the sharks aggressive and damage themselves on the cage for peoples entertainment. I went out twice with Adventure Bay,I should of taken... More

Went on the Great White Shark Dive with Adventure Bay, chose this provider due to them not baiting the sharks. On first impression we were a little disappointed with the boat, it is very basic and very open, not ideal on a cold day, and it was a very cold rough day. We headed out stopping at various stops to... More

We went on this tour on Saturday 26th July and I just can't sing their praises enough. Matt, Stacey, Sam and macca were a wonderful crew who looked after everyone on board. It was great with only 12 people on the boat. There was heaps of food and drink and blankets if we were cold. The equipment was clean and... More

Hi Jessica, thanks for writing a review on trip advisor! it is really worth while as it gives our future potential guests some idea on how we operate, how magnificent the Great Whites are and a little helpful advice like you said with the sea sick tablets goes a long way! Thanks so much for coming and we hope to... More

Went on the last day of May and saw around 5-7 sharks. Truly amazing experience. Best thing about it was you never felt you were in harm's way. Adventure Bay Charters doesn't chum the water or baited lines to draw them in, so there was never a moment when the sharks were aggressive. The trip really makes you sit and... More

The staff were very accommodating to dietary requirements and worked hard to provide a pleasant experience for everyone. They were respectful and knowledgeable of the area and ecosystem. They even slowed down on the way back for us to look at the dolphins racing at the front of the boat, and made sure everyone had a turn viewing the sharks.... More
