The ultimate one day adventure of the Shark & Sealion Combo! It is now possible to both cage dive with Great White Sharks and Swim with the Sealions in the same day! Calypso Star Charters were awarded the Best Adventure Tour & People’s Choice for the Best Attraction at the 2018 South Australian Tourism Awards
Boarding at either 11.00am or 6.30am on the MV Calypso Star, enjoy a cruise to Hopkins or Grindal Island with an island lunch stop along the way (on the 11.00am boarding tour).
At Hopkins Island you will have the opportunity to jump in and swim, viewing the mesmerised skills and abilities of these gorgeous animals, or sit back and enjoy the action from the comfort of the vessel.
In the afternoon we depart Hopkins Island and make our way to Neptune Island Marine Park, then it is time to cage dive with the magnificent Great White Shark! Your evening consists of cage diving, a dinner at sea, then cruise home enjoying the sunset and a drink after bar opens!
During some months this tour also boards at 6.30am. On this trip the tour maybe run in reverse and breakfast is served instead of dinner. Length of the tour is approximately 10-12 hours.
PLEASE NOTE:The Visitor Use Fee is payable by all guests entering the Ron and Valerie Taylor Marine Park (Neptune Islands) on a shark cage diving tour. This fee is used to cover the Government management, research and compliance costs associated with the industry.
The price of our tours is the same for guests who wish to dive or not, as when a shark is sighted, everyone on board has the opportunity to view the shark, not just those in the cage. We encourage all guests to dive in the shark cage and respect the wishes of those who prefer to watch from the boat. If a shark isn’t sighted, we offer a $100 refund to all guests and a discounted return ticket as part of our No Shark Policy.
