We offer small group live aboard expeditions to view and dive with great white sharks. Rodney and Andrew Fox have worked with great white sharks for over 45 years. This all started of course, with Rodneys miraculous survival following a shark attack in the early 1960's. These days, it is Andrew Fox, Rodney's son, who runs the expeditions and Andrews passion, understanding and hands on experience with great white sharks is quite unprecedented worldwide. Each expedition is not just an adrenalin rush like no other, we will introduce you to the sharks that you see. We know, name them and profile them through our Fox Shark Research Foundation. This exists 'to inspire the appreciation and understanding of great white sharks through research and education' and before you know it you will be helping us identify the sharks on your dives! Our trips are not just all about sharks however, and we will always look to snorkel or dive with the extremely cute and photogenic Australian sea lions and take a tour around the beautiful Neptune Islands in our tender boat to visit the New Zealand fur seals that live there. Life at the Neptune Islands is explained in our onboard great white shark biology and research talks as is the seasonal changes and seal breeding patterns that occur there. Our expeditions only run when there is a good chance of seeing great white sharks who are seasonal visitors to the area. We also understand that it is unrealistic to expect great white sharks to appear as soon as we turn up, so with our slightly longer trips, although we can never guarantee the sharks, we do have a very good and very high success rate. Due to our responsible operator history we also have a ministerial exemption to use berley to attract great white sharks to our boat, which is absolutely essential for successful great white shark viewing. Our small guest numbers on-board (max 12) allow lots of cage time and so long as all guests are getting a fair and equal look at the sharks, you can just stay in there! No dive experience is needed for our surface cage diving and our dive master crew will give you a briefing on how to breathe underwater if you have not done this before. For qualified divers, our world exclusive ocean floor cage diving is quite addictive, here we take you to the floor of the Southern Ocean to see great white sharks truly in their domain with a huge array of other fish life including huge smooth rays, eagle rays and blue gropers! Accommodation onboard includes a large comfortable saloon and 6 twin/double en-suite cabins and enjoying a night of star gazing with a glass of local wine after a beautiful sunset is the perfect way to relax after a thrilling day! We also offer special rates for surface cage diving or topsider viewing only can help you learn to dive! Please email us if you have any other questions about our expeditions and we look forward to hearing from you and hopefully seeing you out with us and becoming part of the Fox Shark family.

Fantastic experience, well looked after, great food and crew and the group of people I met on the weekend away were just a fun and lovely bunch of people. Just a magic time away. Definitely will be back for another dive next winter.

It was amazing to see the sharks! I loved it! I was on a five day trip, mostly researchers and photographers were on the boat. One wish I had could unfortunately not be granted and that was to snorkel with the "puppets of the sea" the sea lions. Otherwise great trip!

I have been fascinated with sharks ever since I first saw Jaws as a kid. This trip was everything that I hoped for and exceeded my expectations. Katie and Jason who's review is a few below here were on the same trip and my floor cage buddies and they sum it up perfectly. The crew were relaxed, professional and made... More

Meeting Rodney and Andrew Fox has been a lifelong dream of mine. Since I was a child, I’ve been borderline obsessed with sharks and followed Rodney’s work with them closely – so much so that Rodney became a hero of mine. When I joined Facebook I was excited to find their page full of Andrew’s amazing underwater photos and he... More

For as long as I can remember my 32 year old daughter has been passionate about sharks & has worshipped Rodney Fox and all he stands for. Therefore you can just imagine her excitement at finally booking a trip with RFSE between 27th & 29th January 2015. As I also love nature, science & conservation, (& spending time with my... More

My partner and I booked a 3 night cage bottom shark diving trip with Rodney Fox between 30th Jan – 2nd Feb. We did the 2 night surface cage trip immediately before which was incredible but we also wanted to see the sharks from the ocean floor. Once again, the trip was serious bucket list stuff.

My partner and I did the 2 night surface cage shark diving trip with Rodney Fox expeditions between 27th – 29th January. All we can say is WOW! Over the course of the 3 days, we saw at least 13 individual sharks, many of which visited the boat multiple times. Coming face to face with a Great White Shark is... More
