While everything on our tours are included in the price such as transport, accommodation, food and entry and national park fees, there are a couple of optional extra activities that we leave up to you to decide if you want to do. You can add these to your basket when you book on our website to confirm your spot.
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 South Australian tour 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.
When booked direct through us you get a free highlights photo package valued at $30. You can check out some awesome footage and all on Calypso’s website.
Shark Cage Diving with Great Whites – Adventure Bay Charters $395pp + $125 on board payment
Alternatively jump on board with Adventure Bay Charters on this full day tour out to the Neptune Islands which gives people the opportunity to shark cage dive with 5 of their adrenalin junkie friends.
They also offer the world’s first Shark Aqua Sub, a revolutionary new way to view Great White Sharks in their natural habitat whilst staying dry! Watch the sharks from a glass viewing area with 360 degree views underwater.
These guys are also Advanced Eco Certified and instead of chumming, pump out AC/DC underwater which apparently is the great whites favourite band. Good taste sharks!

THINGS TO NOTE
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 tours 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.
