While everything on our tours is included in the price such as transport, swags, food and entry into national park fees, there are two optional extra activities that we leave up to you to decide if you want to get involved. You will need to pre-book prior to departure.
Swim with Sea Lions & Dolphins – Baird Bay $180pp
This is an amazing experience and really two experiences rolled into one! You many have swum with dolphins before but the interaction you will have with the sea lions and dolphins together at Baird Bay is once in a lifetime and truly life enhancing. The rare and endangered Australia Sea Lions are the puppy dogs of the sea splashing, jumping, twisting, and twirling all around you and if you’re lucky you might even get a kiss. The magical bottle nose dolphins won’t disappoint either!
A 3 hour cruise with all equipment and morning tea provided what more could you want! You can check out all the details here and this experience also needs to be booked in advance so let us know at time of booking if you’re keen and we will put you on the list.
Payment made at the operators base.
Shark Cage Diving with Great Whites – Calypso Star Charters $395pp + $100 on board payment.
Calypso Star Charters was established in 1990 and have a proud history of providing safe and exciting Advanced Eco Certified Shark Cage Diving. They are also the only one-day Shark Cage Diving operator who is permitted to use natural fish berley (chum) to attract the sharks. This sustainable practice provides passengers with the best possible chance of sighting and interaction close to the vessel and cage which will enhance your incredible experience!
The full days charter boards at 6.30am and it takes about 2.5 hours to get out to the Neptune Islands. If you choose to jump in the cage it’s an extra $100 paid on board and no diver experience is required. All food and equipment is supplied and MV Calypso Star 2 is the only Shark Cage Diving vessel fitted with a Gyroscopic Stabilizer greatly increasing guests’ comfort throughout the day.
You can check out some awesome footage and all on Calypso’s website.
Please keep in mind
These tours are separate to the Nullarbor Traveller and therefore the terms and conditions of each of these companies apply. Weather can play an important part in the operations of these tours and occasionally a tour may be cancelled which is beyond our control. If that is the case you will be provided a full refund.
The operators of the Shark Cage tour are unable to guarantee a shark sighting as they are after all wild animals. In the unlikely event that a shark is not seen a return at half price gift voucher is provided to each person.
