Day 2: dive with the sharks

This full-day tour will really have you on the edge of your seat as you begin the day with shark and wildlife spotting, before gearing up and taking on the cage dive. Here you will be greeted face-to-face with one of nature's most powerful of beasts: the great white shark. We can’t think of a better way to get your adrenaline pumping!
Day 3: sunset kayaking, Hindmarsh Island
After spending all this time exploring below the water in Port Lincoln, it’s time to make some incredible memories above it. Departing from Sugars Beach on Hindmarsh Island in the early evening, you’ll kayak along the Coorong as the sun sits low in the sky and paints the horizon in amazing afternoon colours. Paddle to the Murray Mouth and enjoy a stroll across the sand dunes. As the sun dips low below the horizon, take a relaxed kayaking journey back to finish off your perfect evening and your perfect weekend!
