Our local Department of Conservation estimated there could be over 120 individual Great White Sharks in the area of the Northern Titi Islands which is about 8 km from Oban Stewart Island. In fact, we have seen over 9 individual whites in one day.

If getting into the cage is not for you, the great white shark can be seen just as well from the top deck of the vessel. The sharks have an inquisitive nature and tend to spend long periods near the surface to investigate the activities that are taking place onboard, they will even lift their head above water to get a better view. Fishing, Cage diving and Sightseeing trips are run up to five days a week with a maximum of 15 people. Day trips leave from the historic port village of Bluff.
