Dive with great white sharks aboard Rodney Fox - the ultimate extreme diving adventure.

This amazing liveaboard shark safari is the only one in South Australia. Whether you choose a short or long tour, there will be thrills at every turn. All trips depart from and return to Port Lincoln, just a 40 minute flight from Adelaide, making it easier than ever to come face-to-face with these magnificent creatures.

Look for sharks by day, and stars by night on Rodney Fox's three decks

This impressive expedition vessel is 32 meters long and is set up over three levels. The main deck is a fantastic place to spot sharks from and in the evening, head upstairs for some star gazing. Accommodating a total of 18 guests in six Double/Twins Cabins on the top deck, whose doors lead directly onto the deck, two Single Twin Cabins on the lower deck, and one Master Suite on the top deck, Rodney Fox has plenty of room for between-dive relaxation. Enjoy your meals in the spacious air-conditioned lounge.

Rodney Fox comes with its very own shark diving cages

The boat's unique feature is the submersible shark cage which can be lowered to the ocean floor with excited certified divers inside. The vessel has two cages; one cage is for surface cage diving and the other is for the ocean floor cage diving. The surface cage can take four guests and the ocean floor cage can take three guests, with a crew divemaster.

Become a member of the Fox Shark family

On top of all the mindblowing shark encounters, one of the most memorable parts of your trip will be hanging out with the fabulous crew. They are friendly, easy-going professionals, who love having a chat and a laugh. But, more importantly, they’re fully qualified dive experts, who ensure everything on board is ‘ship shape’ – you couldn’t be in safer hands. No matter how long your stay on-board, the experience will never leave you, and you’ll forever be a part of the Fox Shark family.

Shark sightings aboard Rodney Fox

While chances of seeing sharks on your dives with Rodney Fox, there is always a very small chance that you won't - these creatures are in the wild and sometimes nature throws a curve ball. If you are one of the very unlucky, your next tour is credited at half the price of the one you paid for. Great whites are seasonal too – you’ll see males all year round, but the giant females are only around in autumn and winter.
