Shark Cage Diving Port Lincon

Recommended Posts

Going on a 4 day Rodney Fox shark cage diving trip in 2 weeks time.

 

Is it worth while taking strobes/video lights?

I assume it will be difficult using strobes/arm system inside the cage. Not much room?

 

I will prob be using a fisheye most of the time so would want to be able to position my housing through the seeing gap in the cage. I assume if i had arms/strobes this would be more of a problem.

Has anyone done this trip. Any advice.

I was on a Rodney Fox expedition in 2009. It's pretty much natural light photography and I think the strobes would just get in the way.

Just returned from the trip.

Highly recommend the 4 day Rodney fox trip.

 

We had great success, 17 white sharks ID plus a few others over 3 days!

 

Anyway. To answer my original question incase anyone is looking for tips

 

Strobes not required for topside cage (too many bubbles, chum, swell ,cage movement, fast moving sharks)

Strobes definately useful for the bottom cage (causes of backscatter reduced + sharks making slow approach to the cage) but need short arm system so you can quickly move your housing through the viewing space in the cage.

Video lights seemed to attract the surrounding fishlife so i stopped using the video lights
