“Life Changing”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Went on the last day of May and saw around 5-7 sharks. Truly amazing experience. Best thing about it was you never felt you were in harm's way. Adventure Bay Charters doesn't chum the water or baited lines to draw them in, so there was never a moment when the sharks were aggressive. The trip really makes you sit and think about protecting and conserving these awesome predators.

“:)”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

The staff were very accommodating to dietary requirements and worked hard to provide a pleasant experience for everyone. They were respectful and knowledgeable of the area and ecosystem. They even slowed down on the way back for us to look at the dolphins racing at the front of the boat, and made sure everyone had a turn viewing the sharks. Great atmosphere, thoroughly enjoyed this day and something I would recommend for anyone keen to safely view these magnificent creatures! Thanks to the staff for making this day so enjoyable.

“Amazing experience - staff really care about the sharks & keeping it eco-friendly. Couldn't recommend more!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

The skipper and staff really made the day. The sharks and customers safety was paramount. Really enjoyed every second of it. I went by myself and was made to feel very welcomed. Definitely worth it! Couldn't recommend doing this ecotour more.

“Wrong time of year, but...”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I went before the pupping season (early April), but still managed to see one shark, very close up. All the team were excellent, they made a real effort to make it a great day for everyone, and drove us past some seals on the way back. They really knew they're stuff, and I was glad to take part in their innovative approach.
