Our business has been operating for over 20 years and boasts a highly successful history. We are the only Advanced Eco Certified business providing the one day charter that also holds a license to berley, giving us a greater chance of attracting the Great Whites to our vessel and keeping them in close proximity! In October 2011 we launched our new vessel, MV Calypso Star 2. The vessel is state of the art and provides all guests with the best in comfort, safety and all the creatures comfort of home, including hot showers! Dont miss your opportunity to be mesmerised by these remarkable creatures as you see them face to face in their natural environment from the safety of our cage, in the clear waters surrounding the Neptune IslandsWith the success of the addition of the new vessel, we saw the opportunity to expand our business operation and offer our customers more than just the one experience. This saw the introduction of our Swim with the Sealions tours in 2011. All aboard the MV Calypso Star for a journey to the playground of the seas very cute and very playful 'puppy dogs', the Australian Sea Lions at Hopkins Island. From the moment we arrive the Sea Lions bound out to the vessel excitedly inviting the guests to join them. The tour provides the opportunity to jump in and swim, viewing the mesmerised skills and abilities of these gorgeous animals, or sit back and enjoy the action from the comfort of the vessel. The tour is interaction guaranteed, environmentally conscious, educational and a whole lot of fun for the whole family! « less

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. « less
