Great White Adventure (2015/16)
- Duration: 3 Days (approx.)
- Product code: TOUR-ADV
Our award winning 2-Night Great White Adventure runs from October to March and now includes one OCEAN FLOOR CAGE DIVE for qualified SCUBA divers It is ideal for anyone who, a little pressed for time, has ever wanted to jump into the cage and experience the thrill of seeing Great White Sharks up close. Even watching them from the boat is amazing. You’ll also learn about the Great White’s habitat and see, first hand, how they interact with their environment. It is an Adventure for all ages, although we recommend children are at least 8 years old, and able to cope in an adult environment.
We’ll meet you at the Marina Hotel, Port Lincoln at 7:45pm and escort you to the Princess II. Welcome aboard at 8:00pm. You’ll be shown to your
cabins where you can unload before the formal introductions and safety talk. Then there’s the Shark Talk – just to whet your appetite (even
more). Bedtime is up to you, but it’s anchors aweigh at 4:00am. (Not that you have to get up then).
It’s worth getting up at day-break for the rest of the journey down to the Neptune Islands. The scenery is spectacular – we pass through the stunning
Thorny Passage and stop by the Hopkins Islands for an hour so you can snorkel with Australian Sea Lions. Anchor at the Neptune Islands (our
destination), where you’ll no doubt spot a few dorsal fins. Divers are briefed, and the cages hit the water, ready for action!
Relax, unwind, talk about the day while feasting on the buffet, check out the amazing night-sky, retire to your cabin (no engine starting at 4:00 am).
Diving resumes in the Surface Cage. We also like to hop in the tender boat, check out the New Zealand Fur Seals and go walking around the Neptune
Islands. Leave the Neptune Islands by 1:30pm and arrive Port Lincoln 6:00pm. (In time for the last flight back to Adelaide).
