Great White Shark Australia
6 Days of Diving
|Dates (Great White Sharks)|
October 20 – 30, 2024
Four decades ago, I took my first dive with the Great White Sharks in Australia. In the company of none other than the legend himself, Rodney Fox, whose awe-inspiring interactions with these magnificent creatures turned my fear into a quest for understanding and protecting these misunderstood predators. That life-changing encounter lit a spark in me, a deep emotional connection with the Great Whites that has fueled my passion for exploration and conservation over the years.
Since then, I’ve experienced the mesmerizing beauty of the Great Whites off Farallon Island, South Africa, and Guadalupe, Mexico. But now, the call of the Australian waters beckons me back. This time, with Rodney’s son, Andrew, and an innovative diving method that draws not just one, but up to four sharks around the cages. Picture it: three or four graceful Great Whites, peacefully circling your cage, allowing a unique opportunity to observe their complex hierarchy and behavior.
This encounter is as intimate as it is exhilarating. With only eight guests and two cages, I envision hours of pure immersion, oscillating between the surface cage and the lower cage nestled 60 to 80 feet below. Imagine, the cage door opens, revealing an unobstructed view of the majestic shark in its natural habitat – the true essence of this peaceful predator on display.
And then, back on deck, over a cold drink, we’ll exchange stories of our dives, each one different, each one thrilling. After dinner, we’ll review your captures of the day, delighting in the images well caught, echoing with the joyful chorus of a day well-lived. Join us in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to truly understand and appreciate the existence of these magnificent creatures. Come, dive deep into an adventure that promises to move you, just as it moved me 40 years ago.
