What is the best time of the year to see sharks?
White Shark sightings can never be guaranteed as they are wild animals, however most of the tours result in shark sightings. Certainly there are better times than others to have the best chance at a good sighting of White Sharks. There is no ‘best’ time of year to see sharks, as they are nomadic and somewhat unpredictable. Historically however, the best time of year for viewing white sharks is from April through to June. At this time the seal pups that were born in the summer months start leaving the safety of the shore and therefore make an easy food supply for the sharks. Unfortunately this period is the beginning of the winter months and therefore the chance of bad weather is also increased. Although they will do their best to ensure trips depart, the weather is out of their control and they encourage passengers to contact them at least 3 days prior to departure for an updated forecast. They also recommend travel insurance in case departures need to be adjusted. November through to the end of January has always been another great time to dive with the sharks as this is their annual breeding season. The weather is also warmer at this time of year, making trips popular in these months. Although there are strong annual trends in both shark reliability, activity and weather conditions, White Sharks can actually be found at the Neptune Islands year round, and they experience great variations and exceptions to rules every season with both the weather and sharks. When on board be sure to ask the staff about seasonal and social events. Once a shark tour has been booked all customers have the right and responsibility to call prior to their tour for up to date sharks sightings. In the event of sustained periods of no sightings, tours can be deferred to a later date. Existing cancellation and admin fees apply.
What if we don’t see sharks?
This is a wildlife experience. They provide access to sharks – we don’t promise sharks. Meaning there is no guarantee, given that they are a wild animal but of course they want you to see sharks and the staff will always work hard to achieve this. If you don’t see sharks from the cage you don’t pay the dive fee. However, the chances of seeing a shark with this tour is 80% higher than standing on the town jetty.
Do you need to have diving qualifications to do the tour?
Scuba Diver certification is not required! All dives are surface dives using “hookah” (surface air supply) meaning no cumbersome air tanks! You will only be 2-4 feet below the surface at all times and free to surface at any time. We will provide you with training on the day!
Can I dive whilst pregnant / epileptic / asthmatic?
All dives on the tour are surface dives using “hookah” (surface air supply) which means that limitations that normally occur with scuba diving do not always apply. During your dive you will only be 2-4 feet below the surface, and you are free to surface at any time. We do not have any problems with pregnant women, asthmatics or people with epilepsy coming on board, provided you are equipped with any medication you may possibly need. There’s just a few things to keep in mind: – The dive location for the shark tour is 2.5 hours from the mainland (and therefore medical assistance) – Being pregnant may make you more susceptible to the symptoms of seasickness – and you may not be able to take most seasick medicines. There is always natural remedies such as ginger tablets though. We recommend that you seek advice and clarification from your doctor before commencement of the tour.
Can I bring my child on the White Shark Tour?
Due to the nature of our tour, they do not recommend children under the age of 5 participate. The reason for this is because the tour is 12 hours, starting early at 6:30am and returning sometimes after 7pm, which is a long day on the water – even for adults! The Neptune Islands are located 2.5 hours (75km) from the town of Port and they cruise through the Southern Ocean to get to the dive site, which can get rough and can result in sea sickness. They also unfortunately do not have extra space for a pram/pusher on board. In the past, some of their passengers have staggered their trip over 2 days so that one parent goes out on the boat while the other stays in Port Lincoln with their child and then vice versa the following day. If you get really stuck, they can look into some child care options in Port Lincoln for you.

Cancellation Policy
