Calypso Star Charters

Liveaboard Diving South Australia1 Day Shark Cage Diving Trips

A day trip is great for anyone who does not have enough time to spend out at sea but would like to have a short introduction to cage diving with Great White Sharks. Calypso Star takes up to 45 passengers for these day trips and is the only Advanced Eco Certified one-day charter operator with a license to berley (chum). This provides the best opportunity to attract the sharks to their vessel in a short amount of time.

You do not need to be a certified diver to experience the Great Whites with Calypso Star Charters. Get in the water with the Great Whites in their 8 person surface cage. All up you will have approximately 45 minutes of cage viewing time in total on a one day trip. The sharks can also be viewed from the boat as they are brought in close enough to see the action from above.
