Great White Shark Diving, NZ

The Diving

These experiences are like nothing you will ever encounter. To be able to view these amazing amimals at such close proximity will take your breath away. All inwater encounters will be via a shark cage which will be kept at the surface tethered to the main vessel at all times. Divers will don their wetsuits/drysuits and a weight belt to help stabolise themselves. Then they just enter the cage via a top hatch and will breathe from a surface supplied regulator. This will make manoevering inside the cage a lot easier without having to wear tanks and BC's etc.

General Daily Plan

The vessel will depart from Bluff, enjoy the sights of Foveaux Strait for approximately 45 minutes while heading south toward the remote Northern Titi Islands. Once anchored off Edwards Island, it’s time to watch our Safety Video and change into Dive gear before we all start to “Shark Watch”. 

Up to five people at a time will enter the cage for up to 25 minutes for their first entry, until everyone has had time in the shark cage using the surface air supply regulators from the vessel. (Photographers, there will be less in the cage for more space)  Following the first dive, divers can visit the cage as often as they like.   Our experienced crew will provide a commentary on the southern Great White Sharks and local wildlife.   

  • Bring your own drysuit/wetsuit (Rental wetsuits are available on request) and mask
  • Please bring warm clothing and a towel - a copy of your Dive Certification, Log Book or written evidence of experience. 
  • A light lunch of bread buns, a small selection of cold meats, salads and fruit. Menu may change due to seasonal availability. Its recommended that you bring your own food if you have any special dietary requirements/preferences. Refrigeration is available on board.
