Spending over 200 days at sea each year
means we're able to give our guests the most natural encounter with sharks possible.

We specialize in small groups and our Eco-friendly approach to expeditions
ensures an intimate and educational experience when choosing Shark Zone.

Our dedicated team love what they do. It’s their passion and expertise that makes each expedition a personal and highly rewarding one. Our approach to our Great White shark expeditions showcases both the sharks and the environment in which they live, offering guests a deeper understanding of these magnificent animals.

There are also good months for seeing multiple species together, but these may be out of peak months for special behavior. July is a fantastic month to see the Great Whites hunting seals. It is however, not the best month for seeing dolphins or Southern Right Whales. If you choose mid to late August there is a good chance to see both natural predation Southern Right Whales.


We operate half day shark tours ALL YEAR round to Seal Island. Possible shark species can include Seven Gill sharks, Bronze whaler shark and the Great White shark.
Whales, dolphins and many species of sea birds are often encountered on this adventurous expedition. As we adopt an eco-system style of operating our trips, going to sea with is like going on a safari game drive and we will try to take in as much marine wildlife as possible on our trips.
