Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions
Join the Fox's aboard the "Princess II" for the world’s ultimate shark adventure!
Since pioneering shark cage diving over 40-years ago, Rodney Fox and his son Andrew have been at the very forefront of human interaction with Great White Sharks. As primary advocates for these creatures, their expeditions and research have educated the public and attracted adventurers from around the world.
Join the Fox’s aboard the “Princess II” for the world’s ultimate shark adventure. Tours depart Port Lincoln in South Australia out to the famous Neptune Islands, which continues to be the very best place in the world to see and photograph Great White Sharks.
Rodney Fox is the only operation in the world to actually cater for qualified SCUBA divers in our special submersible cages. These dives descend safely down 18m (60ft) below to the sea floor. Here right on the bottom we enjoy vastly superior shark viewing opportunities, as well as being surrounded with other local sea life, including the world’s largest stingrays, southern eagle rays, giant blue wrasse, and many other fish species found nowhere else.
Non-certified SCUBA divers can also participate in our regular surface cage dives by simply breathing air from a “hookah line”, a surface fed air supply. Our dive masters gently and patiently encourage and guide all new divers! Here the cage floats right at the water surface, and is fixed directly to the boat.
During the adventure, expedition members are encouraged to go onshore and explore the Neptunes. A wonderful variety of wildlife, including many birds, dolphins, fur seals and the rare Australian sea lion are commonly seen at these remote and scenic islands.
We strive to make each and every great white shark expedition a comphehensive and ultimately satisfying adventure for every special guest. We like to show our passengers a real taste of South Australia’s remote natural beauty, a taste of our local wonderful food and wine, all while staying out on location, living onboard the Princess II, our comfortable liveaboard home.
Our research program, special talks, shore excursions and superb onboard facilities, accommodates every level of diver and non-diver alike with the most rewarding great white experience available in the world. This elusive and most magnificent of creatures deserves this level of attention, and this is what Rodney Fox Expeditions lives for, and stands for!
