Calypso Star Charters - Shark Cage Diving
Our 1-day Shark Cage Diving Charters are an AUSTRALIAN FIRST & only available in Port Lincoln. They are ideal for people with limited time or budget and best of all NO diver qualification is required!
Calypso Star 2 was acquired in 2010 and underwent an extensive refit over 12 months to transform her into the magnificent vessel she is today before being launched in 2011. She is the pride of our fleet and was custom fitted for our 1 day Shark Cage Diving Tours. The "Calypso Star" crew hail from diverse backgrounds, bringing a wealth of travel and commercial fishing experiences to our charters. We look forward to seeing you on board....
MV Calypso Star
• Length 19.95m, Beam 6.2m, Draught 1.85m, Weight 45 tonnes
Other features include:
• Cruise speed of 16 Knots. (2.5 hrs to Neptune Islands)
We board the boat at 6.30am at the Marina Hotel, throw the rope off at 7am, and return approximately by 7pm. Enjoy the 2.5 hour journey to the Neptune Islands, often accompanied by pods of dolphins & even the odd whale in season aboard our 65 ’ very comfortable 'MV Calypso Star 2'.
The bait hits the water, then the action begins!!
We often have had Great Whites around the boat before hanging back on the anchor. Fingers crossed “ Big Mumma” may arrive; an18’ plus monster. Once the sharks arrive and depending on the action, each person will have the opportunity to experience approx 45-minute of cage viewing face to face with the amazing Great White Shark through crystal clear water in groups of 7 at a time in the cage. Magnificent hot lunch and cappuccino-icy cold soft drinks included and the bar opens on the way home. BYO is also welcome, cans preferable.
While every effort is made to attract the sharks to our boat, in nature there can be no guarantees! In the rare event of not seeing Great White Sharks a half price return ticket is offered to all on board. This ticket is valid for 12 months and is not transferrable.
