Private Charter - 1 Night Adventure
- Duration: 2 Days (approx.)
- Product code: TOUR-ADVP1N
This trip 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.
Our Rodney Fox Crew will meet you at the Marina Hotel, Port Lincoln at 6.15pm. Our team will then escort yourself and your luggage to the MV Rodney. Welcome aboard at 6.30pm. You will be shown to your cabins where you can unload before formal introductions and safety talks begin. We then begin our journey to the Neptune Islands (or Hopkins if the group wishes to frolic with the Australian Sea Lions) for an early start the next day. The evening brings opportunity to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Neptune Islands, listening to the sounds of the seals with a chilled glass of white. There is plenty time to chill out and rest. We have heaps of games on board, as well as books and videos and sometimes host a night of shark quizzes and fun – it’s really up to you how you spend the evening.
Cages are launched! Spot your first great white from the viewing platform and then get suited up! Diving all day in the Surface Cage and also with the Ocean Floor Cage for SCUBA divers. There is no time limit in the cages, as long as everyone in our smaller sized groups has their fair share. You can also do some Shark and Wildlife watching from the observation deck, relax with a book, work on your tan – anything that floats your boat.We also like to hop in the tender boat, check out the Long-Nosed Fur Seals and go walking around the Neptune Islands. Here, there are many bird species and to watch and the more elusive Australian Sea Lions can also sometimes be spotted. We will leave the Neptune Islands by 2:00pm with an arrival back in Port Lincoln by 6.30pm (in time for the last flight to Adelaide at 7.40PM). On the journey home, we will enjoy some lovely local South Australian wine usually with common dolphins joining us for company.
