Via @nakaweproject Shark-diving is a fast-growing tourism industry across the globe and, according to Vianna et al. (2018), shark tourism is estimated to engage ~500,000 participants every year! . In 2011, 376 shark ecotour operations across 83 locations and 8 geographic regions were identified generating significant economic benefits to local communities and economies. In Fiji, for example, shark tourism generates over $42 million (USD) annually to the country's economy; in Palau (Micronesia), the industry generates around $18 million (USD) per year; and, in Australia, shark diving generates annual revenues of $25.5 million (USD). But, the most valuable shark tourism worldwide occurs in the Bahamas, and generates annual revenues of over $109 million (USD)! . So, what do these data tell us? Well, first and foremost, they show just how more valuable sharks are alive than dead. They also highlight the power and critical importance of ecotourism revolving around sharks. We believe that ecotourism is one of the most viable and important avenues to take to save sharks! So next time you decide to take a vacation, why not find a sustainable and responsibly run shark ecotourism company to head to? .

Photo from today’s trip of a shark feeling the cage with his mouth in a non aggressive way. As they do not have hands they feel with their mouths.

Loved this 3m male today! Was so placid and extremely curious around the cage, was non stop all day! Such a champ!! #whiteshark #greatwhiteshark #calypsostarcharters @calypsostarcharters #neptuneislands #cagediving #sharkcagediving #portlincoln #southaustralia
Got this shot today, 3m male!! It’s been a while since I’ve experienced shark activity like we had today, 4 white sharks that we identified, possibly more, but what an epic day for us crew and passengers!

Curious juvenile male #greatwhiteshark caught on film by @davesandford … it is sad that still in places like Australia these beautiful apex predators may get caught in shark nets or hooked on drumlines as the government attempts to sterilise the ocean so that humans can recreate in it… Found on @oceaninsider #stupidhumans #sharks #ocean #saltlife #cagediving #nofear #Repost @oceaninsider ・・・ ❤️ Check out the beautiful dark eye on this inquisitive juvenile male Great White shark! @davesandford caught this footage on his iPhone of all things when he went cage diving off our very own Neptune Islands yesterday!

Photo & caption by @scott.portelli who came on board with us! As an Australian I am very aware that we have these beautiful great whites in our waters and can’t imagine the oceans without them. Respecting them and the environment they live it is the way you stay safe and keep sharks protected for many generations to come. We would rather see them like this in all their glory then as shark fin soup on some menu. So don’t be afraid of sharks be educated about them. We go into their environment not the other way around ▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂ Also follow @calypsostarcharters.videos ▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂ #portlincoln #calypsostarcharters #shark #sharkdiving #cagediving #sharkcagediving #neptuneislands #ecofriendly #ecocertified #discoversharks #sharkdive #whiteshark #sharkcagedive #greatwhiteshark #ocean #cagedive #sharkcage #greatwhite #seesouthaustralia #seeaustralia

Unfortunetly no sharkies :( but a selfie with a fish 🦈🐳🐬🐟 Will have to come back again 😂😘 #portlincoln #neptuneislands #cagediving #greatwhiteshark #calypsostarcharters
Great Whites are more fascinating and majestic than what the public has them be and the Great Barrier Reef (even if just a small portion) is humbling to look at when on the ocean floor. Will have better equipment and will be looking for a SCUBA partner when I next visit Townsville. As for the shark cage diving, looking forward to the combo to not only go cafe diving but swimming with seals! .

We have had to cancel today’s trips and tomorrow’s due to bad weather so our next trip is now on Saturday. We have posted this photo from our archives before but it is one of our favourites. This was taken on a rough weather day a few years ago. It is not photoshopped and is a photo of one shark turning. We hope for some good luck on Saturday’s trip. It’s challenging when we work with weather & nature, 2 things we can not control! ▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂ Also follow @calypsostarcharters.videos ▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂▂ #portlincoln #calypsostarcharters #shark #sharkdiving #cagediving #sharkcagediving #neptuneislands #ecofriendly #ecocertified #discoversharks #sharkdive #whiteshark #sharkcagedive #greatwhiteshark #ocean #cagedive #sharkcage #greatwhite #seesouthaustralia #seeaustralia

Sooo... Just to get a bit of perspective on these pictures from a sharkdive the other day. That small seabird there actually has an wingspand at about 1.7-2 meters 🤨. God damn these great whites sizes amazes me everytime both in and out of water 🦈💙 and how about that dodge.. Good job my flying friend 👌😎 . . #greatwhite #visitaustralia #australia #southaustralia #neptuneislands #ocean #diver #wildlife #sealife #life #greatwhiteshark #beauty #adventure #metime #loveit #travelaustralia #seeaustralia #exploringaustralia #travelnow #discoverearth #australiagram #travelgoals #traveldiary #happiness #travelblogger #travelphoto #australiananimals #feriespam #moneyshot #photooftheday
