“SHARK CAGE DIVING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

We went to Pt Lincoln for the Mortlock shield and decided do do the shark cage diving.
there was 6 people that went on the Sunday so we had plenty of time in the cage .the total experience was fantastic from the boat ride out approx 2.5hrs to diving in the cage and seeing the Great white Sharks, we saw some big sharks approx 4 ,they hung around for a while just checking us out. we spent probably just over 2 hours in the cage in total ,diving three separate times.The staff on board were very helpful friendly and informative .I would totally recommend Adventure Bay Charters thanks for a great experience.

“Just a must do for any adventurer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

Sure the journey to Neptune is a long way, but its a lot closer to Sydney's east coast than any other shark dive and I just took it as part of the experience. And this is one experience I will never ever ever forget. Face to face with Jaws!!! In her environment ~ fantastic! Actually it was the 'not being face to face' and not being sure where the hell they were which was the most disconcerting. The Canadians onboard called it one of their BUCKET LIST. I think this experience belongs on everyones bucket list. Just do it!

Your review made me laugh!! The sharks are very mysterious. You're sitting there waiting in the a cage and then all of a sudden there is a big whopping shark in front of you!! and your left thinking 'i didn't even see him coming!??!'

It is a bucket list item! glad you ticked it off!
Cheers
Kate

“Awesome would recommend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

Went to port lincoln for the shark cage dive, the crew, food, cage & experience was fantastic. Only downfall was the over 2 hour journey to Neptune, it was boring, could do with some interaction, instead of getting the info pack to read maybe talk shark facts or do a game to see who read the info, do like a pop quiz & the winner gets a chocolate bar or something The shark sightings blew my mind!!! Overall awesome. Fabio

“Unforgettable Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2013

Adventure Bay Charters certainly delivered an unforgettable day for our 'Swim with the Sharks' experience. The crew were very welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the entire day. We were lucky enough to see a couple of huge sharks every time we were down in the cage. I was intrigued to see how attracting the sharks with music as opposed to bait would go, and it was very interesting and I found it pretty special to see the sharks up so close around us all day and it felt like we really got to experience them in their natural surroundings. Adventure Bay Charters passion and dedication towards marine wildlife and environmental sustainment was very important to them, which was a huge bonus on our experience. Yummy brekkie and lunch on board too. Relaxing journey back in the late afternoon with dolphin sightings along the way. A big thankyou to all the crew.

“Seeing Sharks naturally - A Must Do!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2013

Experienced the 2 different types of cage diving tours and hands down Adventure Bay charters was the best experience. Great Crew who really know their stuff and really seemed to care about the sharks. Small group, more personalised service, It takes a lot to impress me and I loved every minute of it. I would recommmend to anybody.
