What a great day ! After traveling a long way to beautiful Port Lincoln, there was always the risk that we wouldn’t see any sharks - but we weren’t disappointed ! Great shark viewing and tour organized REALLY well. Plenty of food throughout the day and a friendly, knowledgeable crew make this a unique experience - highly recommended !

Hi Jenni,

So glad you saw a shark! At times of low sightings we do keep all our guests personally updated with the activity as it is very important to us to be completely open and honest regarding the current activity. At all times we are transparent with our sightings with them displayed on our website for every trip since January 2011.

Our crew do strive to not only provide an exciting day but also share their knowledge and educate our guests. We love to chat and are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for highly recommending us to others we really appreciate it!

An exciting cruise out to the Neptune Islands to go shark diving. It’s a great day to enjoy the ocean at Pt Lincoln and get to know some new people.. Nice homely atmosphere with friendly staff and more than enough food to keep you satisfied.
Seating is basic but ok and don’t expect resturant quality food, but you are there to see the sharks so it’s good enough. The equipment is good, wetsuits, boots and mask suitable. The cage felt safe and air to breath while under water was easy to use.
We saw sharks and were very happy. They sent a few emails to remind us that nature is unpredictable and sightings are not 100% guaranteed so it was a bonus to see 3 sharks when season was low..
Overall a great experience, perfect birthday present for a teenager! We’ll definitely go again in the “high” season.

Great to hear you had and exciting day on board and saw 3 sharks! What a great present for your teenager.

We look forward to seeing you again and and would suggest you to take a look at our sightings history displayed on our website as we list every trip since January 2011 which will give you a good idea of the best times to come. We can never guarantee sightings at anytime of the year but we do have the highest success rate amongst the one day operates at an average of 85% over a year.

This is my second time to Port Lincoln and its not only because it is a beautiful place but because its the only place in Australia you can swim with Great White Sharks. The crew are absolutely amazing on the trip and sometimes it feels that there fattening us up to feed to the sharks because the food just keeps coming all day and it's so delicious. You can not fault Calypso Star because they are just the best at what they do. Not only was the trip fantastic but so was the accommodation, Debi and Robert at the Yha are the kindest most welcoming people and you will certainly feel like one of the family. Debi can help you with anything and tell you all the places you must go and see and it is by far the nicest Yha I have ever stayed in. In fact its more like a hotel with not only shared dorms but double rooms, BBQ area, amazing Kitchen, TV lounge and movie room upstairs. Port Lincoln is definitely a place everyone should visit and the Yha is by far the best place to stay.
Thank you so much guys

The Port Lincoln YHA is a great place to stay many of our guest choose to stay there. We think Port Lincoln is a wonderful place to visit and hope more of our guests stay a little longer when they visit to explore our region.

Hope to see you again for a third time!
