Goodbye to a great year, hello to a Great White.

While most people choose to celebrate New Year’s Eve at a party or bar, I said goodbye to 2018 in a different fashion. Monday December 31 2018, I took a very literal plunge and went shark cage diving.

We were an eager group, up bright and early at 6am on the last day of the year to head down to the Adventure Bay Charters office to check in. By 6:30am the rest of the tour group had arrived and it was out onto the boat, the formidable Shark Warrior.

The trip took us around 70kms south of Port Lincoln to Neptune Islands, and while I proudly stated “I’m so glad I don’t get sea sick” as we boarded the boat, there were a few moments of the journey where I had to eat my words while I made sure nothing else came back up (if you’re thinking of doing a shark dive but are prone to sea sickness I’d strongly recommend investing in something to help with this).

Eternally grateful for the stationary boat, we put on our wetsuits and headed to the stern to see the cage now submerged and ready to protect us from whatever was lurking below.

Head to the Eyre Peninsula website to read about the rest of the escapade……. along with Eyre Peninsula Adventures – To Streaky Bay and Back Again, To Wudinna and Back Again and, To Port Lincoln and Back Again.
