Great White Sharks are our passion. You might say it’s in our blood, what we do and why we exist.
It all began in 1963, when Rodney Fox was savagely attacked by a Great White Shark whilst defending his spear fishing champion title off Aldinga Beach, South Australia. This was the turning point for Rodney. He soon discovered Great Whites were not crazy man-eaters, but fascinatingly cautious creatures.
Rodney Fox invented the first ever shark diving cage inspired after a trip to Adelaide Zoo. Soon later, Rodney Fox Sharks Expeditions was born. Rodney believed that the best way to educate people about sharks was by great white shark diving tours on the Neptune Islands, Port Lincoln.
We currently are the only liveaboard boat on the Neptune Islands. Our expeditions allow for the chance for our passengers to dive with the great white sharks and sea lions, as well as walking tours of the North Neptune Island and shark research talks.
We offer both surface cage diving and the world exclusives ocean floor diving so non divers are more than welcome on board! [ learn more ]
"Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions offer a one-on-one wildlife experience unlike any other. My family and I had the privilege of spending the week on board, it was absolutely unforgettable.
It was amazing to see the passion and dedication that Andrew and the whole team have for shark conservation. Rodney’s remarkable shark legacy reminds me of my dad’s legacy for crocs – and it was wonderful to be around people who share a love and admiration for apex predators."
As a keen photographer, if you want the "real deal" I cannot recommend the Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions team enough.
If you want the best - go with the best.
If you want to see Great White Sharks then a comfortable, multi day trip with the friendly Fox crew is the only way to do it. Longer time at sea means more and better interactions, and the ocean floor cage? Well where else can you do that?!! Oh and the great food and laughs are endless!
A luxury well maintained dive tourist vessel with great food and wine, comfortable bunks and excellent cages cleverly designed for easy photography. Other dive operators from around the world have followed Rodney and Andrew's successful dive operation but none of them offer the same experience with our Australian Great Whites. For the filming of the live shark footage for JAWS, Ron contacted Andrew's father, Rodney to help arrange the expedition. Need I say more.
