Surface Cage Great White Experience
The Great White Expedition gives 3 days diving and 3 nights onboard the Rodney Fox. This is the perfect trip for anyone who has ever wanted to jump into the cage and experience the thrill of seeing Great White Sharks up close. Even watching them from the boat is amazing. It is an Expedition for all ages, although we recommend children are at least 8 years old, and able to cope in an adult environment. Certified SCUBA Divers have the option of upgrading to Ocean Floor Cage Dives. Expeditions allow for the chance for passengers to dive with the great white sharks and sea lions, as well as walking tours of the North Neptune Island and shark research talks. The wonder and excitement of being in the water with these amazing creatures is indescribable. Simply amazing!

  • Proposed Itinerary

    Day 1 Meet outside of the Marina Hotel, Port Lincoln at 6.15 pm. Welcome aboard at 6:30 pm. Formal inductions and safety talk will begin, followed by being shown to your cabins to unload your belongings. Anchors away and head off to Hopkins Island or the Neptune Islands. Please note that dinner is included onboard on this first night.
    Day 2 It’s worth getting up at day-break for the rest of the journey down to the Neptune Islands. The scenery is spectacular – pass through the stunning Thorny Passage and stop by the Hopkins Islands for an hour so you can snorkel with Australian Sea Lions. Anchor at the Neptune Islands (our destination), where you’ll no doubt spot a few dorsal fins. Divers are briefed, and the cages hit the water, ready for action! | Relax, unwind, talk about the day while feasting on the buffet, check out the amazing night-sky, retire to your cabin.
    Day 3 Diving resumes in the Surface Cage and the Ocean Floor Cage. We also like to hop in the tender boat, check out the New Zealand Fur Seals and go walking around the Neptune Islands. By now, you'll be getting to know your sharks and the Rodney Fox Shark Presentation in the evening will share even more information about these wonderful animals.
    Day 4 More time to spend Surface and Ocean Floor diving – there is no time limit in the cages, as long as everyone has their fair share. You can also do some Shark and Wildlife watching from the observation deck, relax with a book – anything that floats your boat. Leave the Neptune Islands by 3:00 pm and enjoy some lovely local South Australian ‘wine on the bow’ usually with common dolphins joining us for company. | Arrive back in Port Lincoln by 8.00PM for guests to disembark. Dinner is provided onboard.

    Rodney Fox Dive Expeditions

    It began in 1963 when Rodney Fox was savagely attacked by a Great White while defending his Spear Fishing Champion title off Aldinga Beach, South Australia. It changed his life, and he became fascinated with the primaeval creature that had almost killed him.
    Experiencing the Great White Shark with the Rodney Fox team is a life-changing adventure. You’ll be in the hands of highly qualified professionals who are happy to share their wealth of knowledge, and who still get a rush out of seeing ‘old friends’ as well as new additions to the Great White family.

    The team is very appreciative of all their guests because every tour contributes to their knowledge and research of Great White Sharks. They have always had and always will have a shark-first policy – these fascinating creatures and their environment deserve to be understood and protected. As Rodney has always said, “It’s better to respect through understanding than kill out of fear.”
    Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions is the only live-on-board Shark Tour in Australia. They offer tours for ‘Once-in-a-life-timers’ and dedicated divers – anyone who wants an awesome shark experience.

    They are the only operator that has Qualified Dive Professionals on board.

    They have exclusive rights to go ashore on the Neptune Islands.
    They have the only Ocean Floor Dive Cage in the world.
    Most of the sailing is done at night, providing maximum exposure to the sharks and the stunning Neptune Islands. You’ll have more time to dive, explore, observe other wildlife, and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow passengers and crew. In between the thrill of the sharks, the tours are relaxed, with plenty of opportunities to unwind or find out more about shark research.
    Whatever time of year, as soon as you step aboard with Rodney Fox, you become a very welcome part of the Fox Shark Family. It’s the beginning of a fantastic adventure that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
