Itinerary
Day 01
Port Lincoln

Port Lincoln

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 favorite choice of music is the rock tunes from AC/DC. Lately they have also taken a liking to The Hilltop Hoods!!

Observers can upgrade to underwater access on the day for AUD 125.00, payable on board. This includes either diving in the Cage or entering our Aqua Sub.

Upgrade includes: Mask, snorkel, wetsuit, gloves, hood, Cage Access or Aqua Sub access.

Tips:
**All underwater access fees are refundable on the day if sharks are unsighted or at the skippers discretion **

  • Port Lincoln is located 640km from Adelaide, South Australia. Either a short 45-minute plane flight, or a 7 – 7.5 hour drive.
    The shark cage diving is carried out at North Neptune Islands, which is approximately 2 ½ hours boat ride from Port Lincoln.
  • Great White sightings can never be guaranteed as they are wild animals, however most of our tours result in shark sightings. Certainly there are better times than others to have the best chance at a good sighting of Great Whites.
    We are always hesitant to say the ‘best’ time of year to swim with the sharks, as they are nomadic and somewhat unpredictable. Historically however, the best time of year for viewing great white sharks is from May through to July. At this time the seal pups that were born in the summer months start leaving the safety of the shore and therefore make an easy food supply for the sharks.
    Unfortunately this period is in our winter months and therefore the chance of bad weather is also increased. Although we will do our best to ensure trips depart, the weather is out of our control and we encourage passengers to contact us 3 days prior to departure for an updated forecast. We also recommend travel insurance in case departures need to be adjusted.
    December through to February has always been another great time to swim with the sharks as this is their annual breeding season. The weather is also warmer at this time of year making trips popular in these months.
  • On the Swim with Great Whites tour you get to be the photographer! Just ask the crew for the underwater camera to take in the cage with you and take as many pictures as you like of the sharks, your buddies and of course a good ol selfie of you in the cage!
    When we get back from the tour the camera is downloaded at ABC headquarters (please allow a week from the day of your tour for all photos to be uploaded) we then upload these to the local operator's Facebook (just click on the local operator's Facebook page after the tour to see photos from our recent tours). From there you can copy them to your own computer for FREE!
    You are very welcome to bring your own underwater camera/GoPro if you have one. Remember to upload any cool photos or videos you get onto our Facebook page so the other guests who were on the trip with you can share it!
    Finally, we have disposable underwater cameras available for purchase on board on the day.
