My friends and I booked with Adventure Bay Charters for our Shark dive as we liked the idea that they don't use Burley to attract the sharks. We travelled over from WA for my friends 30th and although it was not the best season to see any sharks, I was still hopeful. The day was Amazing.......We did only see one... More

I really spent an amazing day and was lucky to see 3 sharks around the boat! The crew is very professional and friendly and the food was so good! They do not use blood (only audio sound vibrations) so it is very interesting to know more about this way to see them and finally discover how a shark can be... More

Travelled over in hope of doing a bit of cage diving with sharks - sadly the only thing missing were the sharks! Don't let that put you off though, obviously there is no way of guaranteeing that Jaws and his buddies will turn up, but even so the day was very enjoyable (even if I did suffer from a bit... More

Thanks for you review Bazz! We really appreciate the feedback and yes very disappointing when we don't see sharks, it makes us more sad than the guests on board most of the time, as you noticed! We know that the sharks are there but that is the nature of wildlife tourism, the Great Whites answer to no one! It can... More

An amazing experience that I had in my bucket list. It was a long trip to Australia, but a fun experience to drive from Adelaide to Port Lincoln; flying is probably better but we had issues with our agenda. This company uses sound waves to attract the sharks and despite rumours we saw just as many sharks as the other... More

Extremely exciting day on the boat! Highly recommended company!!! "bait" the sharks with music is the best! The crew is great fun and helpful in any way, and there is plenty of food included on board! We saw several sharks and dolphins/seals... Must do when you go to Port Lincoln!!

This is one of the most amazing things I have ever done and cannot recommend it highly enough. This company uses music to attract the sharks and despite rumours we saw just as many sharks as the other boat. It was great to see them in their natural state, and gives you a completely different view on sharks. The day... More

Making an early start, we left Port Lincoln in relatively calm water accompanied by a pod of playful dolphins racing alongside the boat. After stopping at a couple of spots to catch a glimpse of roosting Sea Eagles we cleared the headland and headed out through some pretty heavy seas to meet the sharks. If you are at all susceptible... More

As the title suggests, what Matt and his crew from Adventure Bay Charters (ABC) give you is a complete experience. Before bumping and grinding our way out across romantic three metre seas to the Neptunes, we spotted Sea Eagles and other wildlife whilst going through the Thorny Passage, whilst being escorted by a squadron of dolphins. Matt regaled us with... More
