Great White Sharks with Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions aboard MV Rodney Fox, Neptune Islands, South Australia, Limited Participation Tour, October 17 – 23, 2023
The summer season in South Australia, from late fall through early winter in North America, has been off the charts for great white shark encounters. The photos shown here are used by permission, from Captain Andrew Fox's Instagram feed this year. Andrew is the son of the world’s most famous great white shark attack survivor, Rodney Fox, and they have dedicated their lives to shark conservation and education. Cage diving tours aboard their live-aboard MV Rodney Fox to the Neptune Islands off Port Lincoln is a wonderful way to introduce enthusiasts to the beauty of the world’s most fascinating shark, Carcharodon carcharias.
With Guadalupe islands closed to shark tourism indefinitely this is the best great white shark option on the planet. Both surface and sub-surface cages ae offered. This allows even non-divers to see great white sharks at the surface, but certified divers can submerge in the safety of a cage to 65-feet along a kelp-covered seafloor to see great white sharks, stingray, and schooling fish. This is a fantastic complement to the blue-water pictures commonly seen of great white sharks, and perhaps the only place on the planet where these photo-opportunities exist.
In addition to the great white sharks, there are also opportunities to swim with Australian sea lions, arguably the world’s most charismatic and photogenic pinniped, at nearby Hopkins Island.
Departing Port Lincoln, South Australia to the Neptune Islands, boarding the evening of October 17 and disembarking the morning of October 23rd. Limited Participation to ensure comfort aboard and maximum cage time per person, normal boat capacity 18 passengers. Maximum 10 passengers for this tour.
