Shark Cage Diving with Great White Sharks
Experience the thrill of cruising the waters off Port Lincoln as your Skipper takes you into the deep searching for the Great White Sharks.
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. Funnily enough, the great white sharks’ favourite choice of music is the rock tunes from AC/DC. Lately they have also taken a liking to The Hilltop Hoods!!
Underwater Access Fee:
All passengers pay the observer rate and later pay the underwater access fee of $125.00 to gain unlimited access to both the cage and sub or either one. This fee is payable on board and only after a successful shark sighting in either the cage or sub.
This includes either diving in the Cage or entering our Aqua Sub. The Underwater Access Fee is payable on board the vessel.

Mask, snorkel, wetsuit, gloves, hood, Cage Access or Aqua Sub access.
Please Note: All underwater access fees are refundable on the day if sharks are not sighted, or at the Skippers discretion
