Our 1-day Shark Cage Diving Charters are an AUSTRALIAN FIRST with Port Lincoln being the only place in Australia where you can cage dive with Great White Sharks. Awarded the Best Adventure Tour in South Australia in 2015, more people choose to cage dive with us than any other operator in Australia!
Calypso Star Charters is honoured to be fully licensed by the South Australian Department of Environment. We are also privileged to be the only one day operator permitted by the Fisheries Department to use berley (chum) to attract the Great White Sharks to our boat at the Neptune Islands Marine Park. The use of berley gives us the highest chance of sighting sharks and productive interaction close to our vessel and cage, resulting in a memorable encounter and wonderful photographic opportunities both inside the cage and from the boat.
Along with our license to berley in Australian waters, we are proud to be an Advanced Eco Certified Operator. Receiving this certification provides us with the recognition that we conduct our operations in a way that is environmentally conscious and sustainable whilst also providing an educational component.
Return transfers are provided at the cost of $10 per person at the following times:

If you are making your own way to the boat in the morning please ensure you arrive by 6.30am.
Travel time to the Neptune Islands is approximately 3 hours, and we do travel through open ocean. We STRONGLY recommend you take travel sickness medication as a precaution, taking one the night before your charter and one again the morning of before arrival at the Marina.
Morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, cappuccino and filtered water included. Soft drinks and bottled water are available for purchase throughout the day. As a licensed vessel the bar opens on the way home with beer, cider, wine and champagne available for purchase.
We have often had Great Whites around the boat before dropping the anchor. Groups enter our new spacious cage up to 8 at a time leaving plenty of room for prime shark viewing! Once the sharks arrive each group will have the opportunity to experience approximately 45 minutes of cage viewing face to face with the amazing Great White Shark. Please note this time can vary and will depend on the shark activity and weather on the day.
View these marvellous creatures through the crystal clear water that surrounds the Neptune Islands. While you aren't in the water you don't miss out, the action from the very spacious upper and lower decks is fantastic. Keep your camera on hand for those prime photographic opportunities. Or watch the underwater action live streamed into the saloon from the cameras mounted on our shark cage!
Please note the $395 price is as a spectator, an additional $100 is payable if you choose to dive.
