The Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions is the ONLY TOUR IN THE WORLD that has Ocean Floor Cage Diving. The Princess II is a substantial, ocean-worthy vessel – 23 meters (77ft) in length and weighing in at 170 tonnes. There are plenty of places to relax, read a book or just ‘shoot the breeze’. Each of the six guest cabins has a double bed, single bunk and en-suite.
Тhe best thing about the Princess II is the fabulous crew. They are friendly, easy-going professionals, who don’t mind having a chat and a laugh. But, more importantly, they’re fully qualified dive professionals who ensure everything on board is ‘ship shape’ – you couldn’t be in safer hands.

Diving

Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions gives you much more dive time – more time to immerse yourself in the world of the Great White Shark. Each dive schedule is planned on a daily basis, taking into account weather conditions and the type of diving experiences our guests have signed up for. On each expedition, Princess II will pass thru Hopkins Island where you can have the chance to dive or snorkel with the Australian Sea Lions.

Surface Cage

The surface cage holds four divers comfortably. You enter the steady, super-strong cage from the lower platform of Dive Deck, and are completely safe at all times. Then the fun, excitement and pure adrenalin rush of the Great White Shark experience comes to life. These magnificent animals are mesmerizing and majestic and glide effortlessly around and below the cage. Surface Cage diving is available on all our tours, and suitable for anyone above the age of 8.

Ocean Floor Cage

The Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions is the ONLY TOUR IN THE WORLD that has Ocean Floor Cage Diving. Anchored off the Neptune Islands, up to three guests and a Dive Professional descend approximately 20 metres (66ft) into world that will captivate and spell-bind – a blue aquarium of rocky outcrops teeming with reef fish, white sand and swaying sea-grasses, laconic Giant Blue Groupers, elegant stingrays and a watchful assortment of sharks. And, of course, the Great White that appears out of the blue and sweeps gracefully towards, over and around the cage. It is amazing! To experience this awesome spectacle, a scuba diver must have PADI Open Water (or equivalent) certification.
