Shark Explorers

(Established 2008)

Shark Explorers offers uniquely customised shark diving, viewing and filming expeditions. We will help you plan and execute your ultimate shark diving experience or shoot, by making sure you are in the right place at the right time with the best chance of successfully encountering your shark of choice.

Mission Statement

We believe that we can make a difference by showing people a positive experience with sharks. We don’t believe in misrepresenting them as potential killers for an adrenalin experience to sell tours. We do believe that sharks should be respected as the critically important predators they are.

Our specialties include:

In collaboration with our friends and partners we also offer you Tiger SharksWhale SharksRagged Tooth Sharks, Bull SharksBlack tip SharksBronze Whaler Sharks and Dusky Sharks. We will show you these misunderstood creatures like you have never experienced before.

Shark Explorers sets the standards and guidelines for responsible shark diving and interactions high. We provide a holistic experience which includes breaking down sensationalistic, adrenaline-hyped advertising, treating sharks with respect, reducing the impact we have on them and their environment, educating divers about their behaviour and the threats they face. Most importantly we want to show you the sheer beauty of these fascinating sharks and give you an experience you won’t forget.

Shark Explorers is active in several research, awareness and conservation projects involving sharks and rays around the world. Whether it’s sponsoring boats and equipment, assisting with fieldwork, or donating images and video, we’re passionate about contributing towards the conservation of sharks and  the oceans.
