Dive with Great White Sharks, South Australia, 15th June 2015
(3 days, 4 nights) Additional 3 day Dragon and Lion trip available (see below)
Imagine coming face to face with the worlds most dangerous underwater predator, the Great White shark. Only one word can describe it…..heartstopping.
Join ginclearfilm in June 2015 for a trip of a lifetime diving with Great White sharks in South Australia.
The expedition is scheduled at the optimum time to visit the Neptune Islands, where there is a strong chance of seeing massive females, as well as the males. The wind patterns also mean that we can anchor slightly shallower, meaning longer bottom times in the bottom cage and more light for photos and video.
This four (4) night itinerary allows three (3) full days on location, with up to 27 hours cage time. There’s g reat local food and wine, shark research and biology talks, beautiful sunsets, plus lots of time to relax onboard under the stars.
In addition to the shark dives, we also swim with the Australian sea lions at Hopkins Island. Having been hunted almost to extinction in the past, the Australian sea lion is given special protection by Australian Government legislation and is listed as rare by the IUCN (World Conservation Union). With the total population of these animals only about 10,000 to 12,000, the Australia sea lion is one of the rarest sea lion species in the world.
Finally, enjoy a beautiful tour around the pretty Neptune Islands in the tender boat getting up close and personal with the adorable New Zealand fur seal pups that are learning to swim at this time of year.
