About Adventure Bay Charters
Adventure Bay Charters is a company unequalled. As the creators, of the world's first shark Aqua Sub - a dry glass underwater viewing area and acoustic attraction for sharks, this is evident. Audio sound vibrations are used to attract sharks rather than bait or chum. This process is achieved via music played through underwater speakers, the first of it's kind in shark attraction. They have a strong focus on building and supporting the local community and the natural environment. Their motto of respect, protect and promote screams that. They offer you the chance to view the legendary Great White Shark and endangered Australian Sea Lion in their most pure form, in the most eco-friendly way they know how. Join a tour with this award-winning, ecotourism, family owned and operated business to learn and immerse yourself today! You will get the chance to meet two of our ocean's most vulnerable species whilst learning how you can help protect them.
