Cage Diving & Great White Shark Experience

This is one to tick off your bucket list – who’s keen to spend a full day out on the water looking for Great White Sharks in Foveaux Strait? Then this is your chance to join Girls on the Road Again for our private charter Shark Cage Dive experience!

There are plenty of sharks in the Foveaux Strait, but we will be parking up where the bigger ones go. Over the summer months Great White Sharks are our most common sightings, but we could also see Mako, Blues and the odd lost seven giller.

Come eye to eye with an array of sharks from the safety of the dive cage – this gives you all the excitement and that special moment with nature – while in a safe environment!

Saturday morning starts with a briefing on the dock at 5.45am before we board our boat and start our awesome adventure, we’ll be docking back around 5.00pm. The fantastic Foveaux Strait and the beautiful northern Titi Islands are home to amazing fish life, some beautiful birds and some memorable sights. We leave Bluff and then enjoy the sights of the Foveaux Strait for approximately 45 minutes heading south toward the lovely Northern TiTi Islands.

We park up at our first dive spot for morning tea and those passengers who plan on getting ‘wet’ it’s time to get changed while our Dive Guide takes new divers (no previous diving experience or certification is required) through a quick training session. This training covers everything you need to know about using our submerged viewing platform and its surface air supply regulators.

This is an ultimate adventure and one for the photographers and is suitable for GoPro, camera with underwater housing or smart phones with waterproof case. You don’t need to indulge in the cage dive experience, you could capture images from the boat or by walking out onto the cage itself, but best images are captured being in the water.
