SAIL WITH A BUNCH OF ANIMALS ABOARD SHOTOVER

Shark Bay is brimming with a huge variety of wildlife. All year round there are dolphins, dugongs and huge loggerhead and green turtles. In the warmer months they’re joined by sea-snakes, sharks (our largest a 4.5 metre tiger shark), sting-rays, flying-fish and the long-tom, a fish that skips across the sea on its tail. Rare highlights are manta rays & whales.

The best way to see this magnificent wildlife is by cruising with Shark Bay’s wildlife specialist; the internationally famous, fabulous, 60’ (18m) pure sailing catamaran, Shotover - “the nature boat”. You’ll be awed by this spectacular, deserted piece of paradise, where Nature overwhelms.

The only cruise company in the world to give you all these commitments:

Love it, or it’s free! - 100% money-back guarantee ✔
Your totally unconditional, 100% money-back guarantee to you. Imagine, a wildlife, sailing and fun experience that exceptional. This extends beyond the cruise to also include everything available on board - clothing; printed items; food and drink.

Plus, $100 warranty of no seasickness ✔
The only 100% certain seasickness cure is to sit under a gum tree. But thanks to Shotover’s exceptionally sea-kindly design seasickness is so unlikely, that we'll give $100 in soft warm cash to any fare paying passenger who gets physically seasick (no fingers in the throat!).

Plus, animal warranty ✔

With wild animals there is naturally the possibility of occasionally not finding them, so we’ll remove that risk for you! If ever you don’t see the animals to your satisfaction you are welcome to come back again, on any cruise, as our guest (yes, for free), as often as you like until you have seen the animals to your total satisfaction. Mind you we’ve been here since 1993, so we know where to go, and you've got excellent prospects of seeing animals.

The only cruise company in the world to give you all these features:

Plus, hear the animals underwater ✔
You’ll hear the dolphins’ often funny and always incredible, vocabulary through our underwater microphone. Amazingly, the crew can tell you what the sounds mean.

Plus, see the animals underwater ✔
So you don’t miss a thing, you’ll be given the use of sunglasses fitted with specially treated, tinted lenses that eliminate surface glare to give you the best view of the animals underwater.

Plus, designed specifically for wildlife watching ✔
No deck cabin to obstruct your view of the animals or separate you from the action. The animals are outside. To see them, you need to be out there with them. There’s ringside seating around the boat and no cabin to obstruct your view or separate you from the action. You’re always in fresh air and in touch with your friends and your crew.

Plus, protection from the elements ✔
Weatherproof clothing is provided. The sails and a rear deck awning provide shade. There’s a refreshing seawater shower if you really want to cool off. Plus free sunscreen.

Plus, environmentally preserving tomorrow, today ✔
Shotover is primarily wind and solar powered and has virtually eliminated noise, air and water pollution, so your enjoyment isn’t affecting the animals or the planet.

Through space-age technology, the fridge is actually cooled by the sun! The chemical-free toilet uses seawater and solar electricity to render toilet-waste bacteria-free. Our safe, Australian-made, cleaning products are made from sustainable, natural ingredients, which are phosphate and nitrate free and not tested on animals.

We conserve fossil fuel by using extremely efficient, high-tech propellers coupled with seldom used, small engines (Shotover averages less than 2 litres of fuel per cruise). Fossil fuel is further conserved by technologically extending our oil changes to yearly. Storing electricity in gel batteries eliminates the gassing and disposal problems of lead/acid batteries.

Plus, Quality Assurance Accreditation from the Australian Tourism Accreditation Authority ✔

Plus, Advanced Ecotourism Accreditation from the Ecotourism Association of Australia ✔

Best for the animals, best for the planet, best for you...

I'm lucky enough to have been on the shotover wildsights cruise and sunset cruise a few times now and I can honestly say that it never disappoints! The wildsights cruise delivers on its promise of exciting encounters with wildlife in their natural setting and the sunset cruise is a great way to wind down at the end of the day with some good tunes and great company! To top it all off the friendly crew really know all there is to know about Shark Bay and its amazing creatures and are always up for a chat! Wouldn't recommend anyone else!!!

“driving you wild”

Shark Bay's World Heritage Area is outstanding on a global scale, on par with some of the most famous natural treasures on earth.



To be listed for United Nations' World Heritage an area needs to meet only one of four criteria. Of the 166 Natural World Heritage sites on our planet, only 19 meet all of the criteria, among these sites are the Galapagos Islands, the Great Barrier Reef, the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone National Park and Shark Bay. Now you can discover the secrets of this unique and awesome wilderness.

Venture into the outback bush, down wild tracks, over rolling red sand dunes, through dense Acacia shrub-lands, along magnificent bluffs and deserted beaches.

You'll be knocked-out by stunning scenery, wildlife and endless beaches (a photographers delight). You'll be amazed to learn that unimpressive vegetation is often food or medicine. You'll discover the survival secrets of how to navigate by the sun; find water and bush tucker.

shark bay national parkYou'll find out how the sheep survived. You'll also learn the ingenious method used to bring the sheep in for shearing.
