Port Lincoln shark cage diving day tours, South Australia

Port Lincoln shark cage diving familyWelcome! We invite you to jump onboard for an exciting day of adventure, education and a whole lot of fun! This once-in-a-lifetime experience of viewing Great White Sharks in their natural habitat will leave you with memories that will last long after your visit to Port Lincoln.


Our 1-day shark cage diving harters are an Australian first with Port Lincoln being the only place in the country where these charters are run. Ideal if you have limited time or a limited budget and best of all there’s… NO diver qualification or previous experience needed!

Spectacular viewing — both in the cage and on the boat

With our skilful use of the baits, we’re able to lure the sharks closer to the cage giving divers the most intense cage dive possible. The use of bait also provides spectacular viewing from the boat, so you don’t even have to be in the water to experience the thrill of a Great White Shark!

Guests board at the Marina Hotel pontoon to the smell of hot coffee made fresh onboard. After an introduction and safety briefing from the skipper of the day, we throw off the ropes and set off for the Neptune Islands. Breakfast is served shortly after departure.


2½ to 3 hour cruise

Sit back, relax and enjoy your journey We’re often accompanied by pods of dolphins and even the odd whale, in season. During the trip, the friendly crew will provide you with information about the fishing industries, the ‘local area’ and the marine life. ’Take in the spectacular coastal scenery of lower Spencer Gulf and the islands of Thorny Passage.  In season, you can try your luck at catching a Southern Bluefin Tuna



On arrival at the Islands the skipper gets the boat up as close to the land as he can so you can get the best views and the best photos of the’New Zealand Fur Seal colony. The exact dive location for the day is chosen and it’s time to drop anchor. The ocean surrounding the Neptune Islands is crystal clear which makes for ideal viewing of the Great White Sharks.


You hit the water!

Groups enter our new spacious cage 6 at a time. This way you get some welcome human company and you still get plenty of room for prime shark viewing. Once the sharks arrive, each group will have the opportunity to spend about 45 minutes in the cage, face to face with the amazing Great White Shark. Please note that time in the cage can vary and will depend on shark activity and weather on the day.

We have our own cameras mounted on the shark cage so you can also sit in the comfort of our saloon and watch the underwater action live-streaming We feed you too.
