Seasons

 

Tiger Shark Diving

Winter – April – September

This is low season for the Tiger Sharks due to the cooler water temperatures. We do have Tiger Shark sightings all year but they are more common over our Summer Months (October – March). We do see many other species of shark throughout the year and the Black Tip Sharks are always around so the Shark Cage Diving is possible throughout the year as well as the baited Tiger Shark Diving.

 

Summer – October – March

This is our better season for the Sharks as the water is generally warmer and there is more shark activity. We see sharks all year round but this is normally the time with the most activity.

Ragged Tooth Shark Diving

July – November
The Ragged Tooth / Sand Tiger sharks start coming in from June but from July this is safely in the season. The sharks stay around until November and sometimes at here in numbers through to December. Some years we have had Ragged tooth sharks that stay most of the year but you will not find the sharks in numbers out of season.
