White Shark Volunteer

Get to live shark week EVERY week on the white shark volunteer program


During the program you will be entering the domain of the great white shark and experiencing what is arguably the greatest predator of all – in its natural environment above and under the water- in a way that only a very privileged few get to do. One of the goals of the program is to show its volunteers how to raise public awareness on the conservation status of all shark species. What better way to do this than join the cage diving team and speak with clients as they get ready to meet white sharks face to face.

You will also assist with many other conservation efforts including beach clean ups, penguin rehabilitation and small shark species tag and recapture. Get your hands wet, have an adventure, come face to face with one of the most beautiful and misunderstood species in the world.
