Description

Board the MV Calypso Star 2 and spend a day in the waters around Neptune Islands to see and learn more about the magnificent Great White Sharks.

At 06:30, guests board the vessel at the Marina Hotel to the smell of freshly made coffee. After an introduction and safety briefing from the Skipper of the day we throw the ropes off and depart for the Neptune Islands. Breakfast is served shortly after departure from the Marina.

Enjoy the 2 and a half hour to 3 hour journey to the Neptune Islands often accompanied by pods of dolphins & even the odd whale in season. Along the scenic journey the friendly crew will provide you with information about the fishing industries, the surrounding Islands and the marine life. Depending on the weather and time of departure, we'll arrive at our dive location at around 09:30 to 10:00.

Upon reaching the islands, the Skipper will pass close to the islands to allow passengers to view and photograph the Sea Lion colony up-close. The dive location for the day is then selected and it is time to drop the anchor. As the bait hits the water, the action begins! We have often had Great Whites around the boat before dropping the anchor.

Groups enter our new spacious cage, 8 participants at a time leaving plenty of room for prime shark viewing! Once the sharks arrive each group will have the opportunity to experience approximately 45 minutes of cage viewing, going face to face with the amazing Great White Shark. Please note this time can vary and will depend on the shark activity and the day's weather.

While you are not in the water, you can see the action from the spacious upper and lower decks. Keep your camera in-hand for those prime photographic opportunities. You can also watch the underwater action live streamed into the saloon from the cameras mounted on our shark cage!

Morning tea, magnificent lunch, afternoon tea, cappuccino and cold soft-drinks are included. As a licensed vessel the bar opens on the way home. Beer, red and white wine are available.

  • Breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea as well as several lights snacks and refreshments throughout the day are included. Please indicate any special dietary requirements you may have upon booking.

  • Return time to Port Lincoln cannot be guaranteed. We recommend that you plan to leave Port Lincoln a day after the tour.

NO SHARK Policy

  • Due to the nomadic habits of the Great White Shark and the fact we are dealing with animals in their natural environment, we cannot guarantee a shark sighting at any time of the year.

  • While every effort is made to attract the sharks, in nature there can be no guarantees. In the rare event of not seeing Great White Sharks, you will be offered a refund of $100 if you booked as a diver (back to the spectator price) and receive a voucher of $200 off your next tour, this can even be redeemed on the Swim With the Sea Lions tour.

  • After a second unsuccessful trip your 3rd and subsequent trips (if you're really unlucky) are priced at $100 each trip to dive. If sharks other than Great Whites are sighted and productively dived with on the day, the No Shark Policy will still apply.

  • To assist you in making your decision on when is the best time for you to book your charter, we provide you with a Shark Sighting Calendar showing the number of sharks encountered on each trip to the Neptune Islands in the past two years. This is a very accurate record of Great White sharks sighted at the Neptune Islands.
