I was lucky enough to go on the 3rd cruise on the new Shark warrior boat. When I booked I had no idea that I would be traveling on this new state of the art vessel. We choose this company due to the Non chumming policy but we worried aboat being on a smaller boat. The new boat has plenty... More

I did the swim with sealions and I have to say its very nice and well worth it. The staff was very friendly and helpful and had some nibbles throughout the trip. Diving suit and the goggles were provided so you don't need to worry too much about it. The experience to swim with sealions was amazing because you get... More

We had the most amazing day. The staff were so friendly and took care of me and my friend cause we have boat sickness. Lovely atmosphere, nice food and great experience. Really rate this company, not a crowded boat which meant as much time in the cage as you wanted.

There is now no excuse not to visit Port Lincoln and go diving with the Great White Sharks! I went with Adventure Bay Charters on Sunday 7th December, on their new boat featuring the revolutionary glass pod which allows you to stay dry while viewing the sharks. It is like being in a reverse aquarium. You can also jump in... More

I have had the luxury of doing many tours in my work all around the country, and the one I always with the greatest smile come back to time and time again is Adventure Bay Charters - Swim with the Sea Lions and Cage Dive with Great White Sharks tours. If you have to do one thing in your life,... More

We decided to go cage diving with Adventure Bay Charters in mid-April, just before prime season for viewing Great Whites, because we had limited time to take the excursion before we left Australia. So it was cross-your-fingers-and-hope-for-the-best. We did have a Great White Shark cruise around our boat. Unfortunately, only five people got into the cage in time to see... More

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
