This special 4 day tour is perfect for people who are looking for an intimate Great White Shark experience (and want to maximise their time at sea) and learn a lot about great white sharks. On this tour, we launch the world’s only Ocean Floor Cage (for qualified SCUBA Divers). However, all guests are able to get up-close and personal with Great Whites in our Surface Cage. It is an Expedition for people who are very interested in sharks and their behaviour, experienced divers, adventurers, shark photographers and anyone who, like us, has a passion
for these incredible creatures.

Day 1                   

We’ll meet you outside of the Marina Hotel, Port Lincoln at  and escort you to our vessel. Welcome aboard at 1:30PM . You’ll be shown to your cabins where you can unload before the formal introductions and safety talk. After leaving the Marina, we'll pass through the stunning Thorny Passage, then stop off at Hopkins Island for a snorkel with the adorable puppy dogs of the seas - the Australian sea lions!  Then depending on the current weather conditions we either look to stroll onshore along local islands and beaches, or decide if it's cruise time to the famous Neptune Islands Marine Park, anchor down and test out our dive kit for the shark diving. There is time to relax, unwind, talk about the day while feasting on the buffet, engage in the Great White Shark Research Talk (really interesting, with some fantastic photography), check out the amazing night-sky, retire to your cabin. Please note that no shark attractant is used on this day.

Day 2                    

Divers are briefed, and the Surface Cage hits the water, ready for action. Our priority is for everyone to see the sharks in the surface cage before we descend deeper with our SCUBA 
diving guests in the ocean floor cage. We also like to hop in the tender boat, check out the Long Nosed Fur Seals and look for landing conditions to be favourable to go walking on the Neptune Islands. Here, there are many bird species to watch and the elusive Australian Sea Lions can also sometimes be spotted. More presentations in the evening and then time for bed ready for the next days big adventure.

Day 3 
More time with the great whites viewing topside, in the surface cage or down on the ocean floor and by now your shark identification skills will be finely tuned. 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 time to chill out and rest. Hit the hay when you feel like it. on the final night at the Neptune Islands we normally encourage all guests and crew to get into their brightest party shirt and hold Quiz Night, a night of fun games and shark facts.  

Day 4      

More time to spend Surface and Ocean Floor diving – there is no time limit in the cages, as long as everyone has their fair share. You can also do some Shark and Wildlife watching from the observation deck, relax with a book – anything that floats your boat. 

Leave the Neptune Islands by 3:00 pm and enjoy some lovely local South Australian ‘wine on the bow’ and a delightful charcuterie board will be served with a selection of preserved fine foods, cured meats, pates, dips as well as cheeses and crackers, fresh fruits and nuts - usually with common dolphins joining us for company.
