Brilliant day with Alex and Jezza in charge of boat. They were knowledgable, funny and helpful. Such a great day, amazing food great and facilities. Loved learning about and getting to see great whites. Very interesting and ethical with music instead of burley. Great experience from start to finish. Thank you so much.

Had such a fun day with Adventure Bay Charters was definitely worth the money :) We went out in November with great weather and saw 3 different sharks, pods of dolphins, seals and an osprey nesting. I really enjoyed the fact that we had time to slow the boat down on the way back and just got to have some... More

Was one of the best things I have done, to be up close and personal with these great whites really gives you a sense of awe as you watch these creatures just glide in and check you out in the cage. Great staff that help you out with everything and provide a fantastic day you will remember for a long... More

The staff on the boat were amazing, made sure every need we had was accommodated for. Some say that the fact they don't use burley to bait the sharks is a negative of this charter, which is completely untrue as they see the same amount of sharks as other charters without baiting the animals and making them attack the cage...

We had an amazing day out on Sunday with ABC swimming with the Great White Pointers, these animals of the sea are amazing. Alex and Matt ran a well organised ship, with plenty of time in the cage or the submersible to see the Sharks. These guys are eco friendly they don't attract the Sharks with offal just good old...

Alex and Matt were fantastic. Made everyone feel welcomed and accommodated all needs and desires. Super friendly, easy going and more than sure making you're day great. Alex took the boat right up to the rocks of the islands for seal and osprey viewing pleasure. Of course the shark cage and sub were the main attraction. Plenty of time in... More

This is a long day, particularly when shark action is quiet as it was on our trip. I saw a shark for less than ten seconds in the distance whilst in the cage but had a better sighting at the end of the day from the boat (wished I had of been in the cage at the right time but... More

Went with ABC as wanted to see sharks in a natural environment. When we booked we were aware that there was a chance we may not see any sharks, especially after the killer whale kill. We were lucky we only had 12 people on the boat that day, we also had a good journey out to the Neptune Islands. Within... More

Staff and boat are amazing. The glass viewing area means you can see sharks and other ocean wildlife without getting into a wetsuit and gear and getting into the cage. But you can see the people in the cage and their reactions to being so up close and personal with the great white
