About Adventure Bay Charters
Adventure Bay Charters is a company unequalled. As the creators, of the world's first shark Aqua Sub - a dry glass underwater viewing area and acoustic attraction for sharks, this is evident. Audio sound vibrations are used to attract sharks rather than bait or chum. This process is achieved via music played through underwater speakers, the first of it's kind in shark attraction. They have a strong focus on building and supporting the local community and the natural environment. Their motto of respect, protect and promote screams that. They offer you the chance to view the legendary Great White Shark and endangered Australian Sea Lion in their most pure form, in the most eco-friendly way they know how. Join a tour with this award-winning, ecotourism, family owned and operated business to learn and immerse yourself today! You will get the chance to meet two of our ocean's most vulnerable species whilst learning how you can help protect them.

Oh my goodness. Was this tour incredible. I don't know what was the best part. The staff were hands down the best tourism/ customer service skills I have ever booked a tour with. The day was fantastic, although we didn't end up seeing any sharks, the rest of our activities and wildlife sightings made up for it in the end. The crew members were very helpful & accommodating. This company does NOT use live bate or blood, which is incredible & sustainable. Honestly a once in a lifetime experience, must do if in Port Lincoln or ever South Australia! Worth the trip.

Hi mate, Thanks for your review! It is challenging to work with wildlife, especially with the Great White Sharks! As they are top ambush predators, they spend a long time in the deep water, so it is a bit tricky to attract them up to surface. We believe our way to interact with shark will make less impact on the shark's natural behavior. Looking forward to seeing you next time! Kind regards, Ben

Thank you to all the team for a gorgeous?first?day back out on the open ocean.? We may not have seen any sharks, however we did see plenty of other beautiful wildlife that enhanced the magic of the day along with awesome customer service. One of the main reasons we booked with Adventure Bag Charters was their Eco Tour approach to seeing these majestic creatures in their environment. Thank you again team and wishing you all the best for the new season. Warmest regards, Jacqui Freeman

Fantastic day out even though the great white sharks didn't grace us with their presence. Saw plenty of fur seals and dolphins and amazing scenery. We were extremely well fed and looked after and Matt, Harley, Amy and Bec were all very knowledgable, attentive and friendly. Highly recommend this tour.

Had a great two trips with these guys. The swimming with sea lions trip was amazing an experience like I’ve never had and will not forgot. Very accommodating company and staff with dietary restrictions. Even let me camp out the back for the early start to shark diving. This was also a brilliant trip didn’t see any sharks ( but that’s nature ) still a nice day. Just be prepared to be on the water for a long day. But no complaints :)
