The Nep­tune Islands Group con­sist of two groups of islands locat­ed close to the entrance to Spencer Gulf and are best known as an excit­ing loca­tion to go cage div­ing with great white sharks.

This area is a world renowned hot spot for the vul­ner­a­ble white sharks, that reg­u­lar­ly for­age in the area for seals. The rocky-cragged coves of the Nep­tune Islands are an impor­tant breed­ing sites for long nose fur seals. It is Aus­trali­a’s largest colony of long nose fur seals with half the Aus­tralian pop­u­la­tion breed­ing here. The area is influ­enced by the warm Leeuwin Cur­rent in win­ter and the cold Flinders Cur­rent in sum­mer, ensur­ing there is a large tem­per­a­ture dif­fer­ence between the sea­sons. This has a large impact on the bio­di­ver­si­ty of the area.

High up on the gran­ite out­crops, you’ll see White Breast­ed Sea Eagles hunt­ing for suprema­cy with Ospreys, hear the con­ver­sa­tion­al twit­ter of Rock Par­rots and mar­vel at the fabled Alba­tross. It’s a bird-lover’s paradise.
