Aqua Sub – Glass Underwater Viewing For Great White Sharks

Want to view Great White Sharks in their natural environment but nervous about entering the Cage? Well now you can.

Adventure Bay Charters are proud to introduce the world’s first Shark “Aqua Sub”. A revolutionary new way to view Great White Sharks in their natural habitat. A glass viewing area with 360 degree views underwater. View the Sharks while staying completely dry!


Aqua Sub

Enjoy lunch or even a glass of wine as you sit back and marvel at the grace and beauty of the Great White Shark.

We still offer Cage Diving as part of our tour so if you decide on the day that you want to enter the Cage as well, all you need to do is pop on your wetsuit and jump in!

Shark Cage Diving


With the addition of the Aqua Sub to our tour we can now have 6 people in the Sub and 6 people in the Cage at the same time. With our small group sizes this means there is no waiting around to see sharks. Half of our boat can be underwater at the one time. No other Shark Cage Dive operator in Australia can provide this. Multiple dives, multiple turns in the Sub. Book your tour today.

Your day, on board Shark Warrior

Your day begins in our new departure lounge. Check in, enjoy a light breakfast, and browse our selection of merchandise before boarding the Shark Warrior.

Our full day tour takes you from Port Lincoln marina to ‘shark bay’ at Neptune Island, approximately 70 kms south of Port Lincoln, South Australia. On the way, see spectacular scenery as you cruise through the Thorny Passage and expect sightings of inquisitive local dolphins and sea birds.

To ensure we are protecting the natural environment, we use audio sound vibrations to attract the sharks to the boat rather than berley. The benefits of using sound vibration is that it is omnidirectional (that is, it travels in all directions underwater), it’s instantaneous and completely eco friendly – and funnily enough, the great white shark’s favourite choice of music is the rock tunes from AC/DC. Lately they have also taken a liking to The Hilltop Hoods!!
