Great White Shark Cage Diving
Join us on an adventure you don’t want to miss – shark cage diving just off the coast of Stewart Island, New Zealand where you will be up close and personal with these fascinating creatures of the sea. Full day tours run from January through to June each year. You don’t need to be an experienced or certified diver as the cage is a surface cage with air delivered into your regulator via a hose from the deck. If you have done snorkelling this is beneficial but not necessary.
Our friendly team are professional and knowledgeable and our cages are specially designed for this thrilling underwater experience. We are experienced operators and a qualified diver will be present with you in the cage if you need it. We are Stewart Island’s ONLY shark cage dive company with a 100% perfect safety record.
Shark Dive NZ are the pioneers of white shark diving in southern New Zealand with unmatched experience cage diving with this population of Great Whites… in fact we have spent more time working with these particular sharks than anyone!
As featured on Shark Week 2013 and 2014
We offer unforgettable white shark encounters that will make your Stewart Island experience truly special. Being passionate about them we endeavour to ensure the unique shark population is not overly disturbed or exploited.
On your journey with us you could also see other marine life such as Royal Albatross, NZ Sea Lions, Fur Seals, Blue Penguins, Sooty Shearwaters and Buller’s Mollymawks.
Don’t want to dive but still experience the thrill of the sharks? We also take spectators! Enjoy the sharks from the deck!
All of our trips involve a research component for an ongoing study into white shark behaviour and population identification.
