Shark Cage Diving with Great White Sharks

If there is one thing you must add to your bucket list, it has to be Shark Cage Diving with Great Whites!

As the creators of Australia’s first Advanced Eco-certified Shark Cage Diving experience, we offer visitors the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view the legendary Great White Shark in its natural habitat. Listen to your favourite music and “Rock Out” with the Great White Sharks!

Adventure Bay Charters has set a standard in shark attraction that is the highest in sustainability and environmental credentials around the world. Our methods of attraction are the most sympathetic towards the people who live by, work on and recreationally use the waters of Port Lincoln.

We are also proud to introduce to you 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!

It truly was mind blowing seeing the Great Whites like that and i thank you for giving me that opportunity. It will live with me forever the moment it snook up in front of my face was brilliant. Please send my thanks to the captain and Ben for looking after us and keeping us safe and returning us safe. Also thank them for not pushing me to get out the cage to go back when I was in there for 2 and a half hours straight. I just didn't want to miss anything.
Sean Chinn,


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!!
