South west Rocks Shark Dive Expedition (deposit) 17th November 2019
Do you want to accompany me on my Shark Dive/Film expeditions at South West Rocks in mid October?
Total cost is $1,550.00 ($200 non refundable deposit)
The expedition is diving the shark gutters around Fish Rocks off the coat of South West Rocks. The depths vary from 15 metres to 30 meters. I have just returned from my last expedition where we encountered many grey nurse sharks on every dive. Many encounters are at extremely close range that allows an opportunity to achieve fantastic video and still photography and research of these amazing sharks.
I film the divers that join me and always gain exceptional video of the divers with the sharks, I also film the divers above water with interviews before and after dives.
I film using the latest Cinema quality 4K video camera’s and use professional underwater lights. I charter a fully surveyed dive charter boat for the 2 x dives per day for 4 days diving. I dive with my divers on all dives and have a fully qualified and local experienced dive master as my underwater assistant.
All dives are nitrox fills, so it is best if my divers gain nitrox certification. That is normally only a half day course. Nitrox is far safer and allows divers more time underwater and less chance of exhaustion or headaches. Nitrox fills are supplied as well as two tanks per day and weights.
When we return from the expedition it takes me about 5 days to shot list all the video scenes achieved and then 3 days with a professional editor to produce the expedition film. The film is then supplied to the divers to keep forever.
I tell my divers numerous facts about the shark species and also information on how to use a professional 4K camera rig with lights underwater. On one of the dives I will supply each diver the chance to actually use my second 4K camera rig underwater.
Other marine life we can encounters includes:
Humpback Whales: Manta Rays: Sting rays: Bat Rays: Wobbies: Octopus: Groper: Cod: Huge schools bait fish: Pelagic Fish: Scorpion Fish: Crayfish: Loggerhead turtles: Green Turtles: Hawksbill Turtles: Dolphin: Black Corals: Sponges and much much more.
On the last expedition we had 50 or more false killer whales riding our boats wake on our way back to the river.
The expedition also includes 5 nights shared accommodation at the South Wet Rocks Divers centre. You can up-grade to single room at a very reasonable rate if required.
After dives, I take divers sight seeing around South West Rocks to the light house and the amazing Trial Bay Gaol. No charge for these excursions. We often get the free mini bus to the local club at night for a good feed and a few cold beers and a talk about the day of exciting fun we have all experienced.
Total cost is $1,550.00 per diver, a $200 non refundable deposit is requested for bookings. The next expedition begins on the 17th November 2019
