Wednesday, December 19th, 2012 - Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions
Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions is the centrepiece of a South Australian Tourism Commission campaign aimed at bringing adventure tourists to the State.

Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions is the centrepiece of a new South Australian Tourism Commission promotional video released through Solstice Media's Indaily e-newspaper.

Featuring Rodney Fox customers, photographer Sam Cahir and Company Director Andrew Fox, the video showcases adventure tourism on the Eyre Peninsula where Rodney Fox Shark Expeditions (RFSE) operates expeditions out to the Neptune Islands, a stop off for the migratory great white sharks.

Rodney Fox is a world renowned conservationist who has researched and educated thousands about great white sharks. Mr Fox was attacked by a great white shark in 1963 while diving off the South Australian coast and survived – albeit with terrible injuries - to tell his story.

In the nearly 50 years since, Rodney and Andrew Fox have taken thousands of visitors from around the world out to the Neptune Islands providing the opportunity for them to move freely in the marine environment within a shark proof cage.

“The support we receive from the SATC is incredibly valuable and we appreciate their tireless work in lifting the tourism potential of the Eyre Peninsula and adventure tourism,” said Andrew Fox, Chief Executive of RFSE.

“There is nothing like being in the water alongside these fantastic creatures but it’s also important to be able to learn about them from expert researchers. No other operator in the world offers this service to customers.”

The Fox Shark Research Foundation works closely with government and private institutions to improve awareness and understanding of great white sharks. This includes tracking shark movements around Australia and understanding migratory patterns in high frequency locations such as the Neptune Islands.
