Our award winning 3-Night Great White Adventure is back running again! This tour now includes OCEAN FLOOR CAGE DIVING for our qualified SCUBA divers. 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 6.15 pm. Our team will then escort you and your luggage to the MV Rodney. Welcome aboard at 6:30 pm. 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. The scenery is spectacular – we pass through the stunning Thorny Passage and may stop for the night at Hopkins Islands for a snorkel with Australian Sea Lions the next morning. Alternatively, we may go straight to the Neptune Islands for shark diving the next day.
Divers are briefed, and the cages hit the water, ready for action! Diving continues all day in the Surface Cage and also with the Ocean Floor Cage for SCUBA divers. 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. The evening brings more 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 of 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. Hit the hay when you feel like it.
Diving resumes again today in both the surface cage and ocean floor cage. By now your shark identification skills will be finely tuned. 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 will leave the Neptune Islands by 4:00 pm. On the journey home, we will enjoy some lovely local South Australian wine usually with common dolphins joining us for company. Stay onboard this last night.
Disembark by 8.00 am.
