Go Cage Diving with Sharks
Two of the main concerns that scientists have regarding the Great White Shark Cage Diving industry is the use of baits to distract sharks from normal feeding activities and the damage caused to sharks by attacking the shark cage and boat.
We see very different behaviour from sharks attracted by acoustics compared to attraction by berley. By playing music through underwater speakers we encourage curious sharks to venture around the boat to investigate the source of the sound. When sharks are not lured by food they are not as aggressive and do not attack the shark cage or vessel, therefore not causing harm to the very (impressive!) creature that we have come to see!
Adventure Bay Charters’ pioneered the use of acoustic attraction for great white shark cage diving in Australia.
