It’s a tough one, with harvest hosts, a group of shark experts and their guests having to navigate a world of shark behaviour, feeding and even shark finning to get the most out of a shark watching night.
But if you’re in the market for a pair of sharks to watch, here’s our guide to deciding which species is best for you.
First, we’ve got to explain why it’s worth going out and watching a night shark.
You can watch a shark in action at The Great Ocean Scuba Diving Association, which is a 501c3 nonprofit organisation.
The association hosts live, underwater, underwater shark watching, plus a few other events.
If you’re looking for something to get your blood boiling, the shark watching event is on Sunday at 8.30pm in the Oceanview, Sydney, NSW, Australia.
The event also runs for two weeks.
If it’s not the right species for you, then it’s time to start the hunt.
You’re in luck, though, as the Ocean View is a well-known shark hotspot and is usually home to the largest collection of sharks in the world.
This is where you can find many great whites and some other big-name sharks such as killer whales, bottlenose dolphins and sharks in general.
If a large shark is a bit more elusive, you’ll need to go to a different location in the Sydney CBD.
If that’s too far, you can always head to Port Lincoln, a popular beachfront spot for the Sydney Harbour sharks.
This place has also hosted many of the world’s best shark watchers, including renowned dive master Scott Flanders.
Here, you will need to wear a mask and be careful to avoid the shark as you watch.
You may also want to bring a spare pair of eyes to get a good look at a big, aggressive shark.
If there’s an event to watch in Port Lincoln during the day, it’s usually the evening of the Sunday before, when it’s quiet and a bit cooler.
You will need a full-face mask and a helmet to be able to see the big sharks in action, and it’s best to be prepared.
For the rest of the time, there are other great white hotspots around the city that you can visit, such as Black Bay, which has a large collection of great whites, and Sturt, which hosts several large, active shark populations.
You should also be prepared for the chance of seeing a great white during a dive in a local dive shop, where they will sell you a special mask to wear to see what it looks like.
If all else fails, there’s also a lot of food to be had around the harbour.
You’ll find great white sharks in Port Macquarie and Port Lincoln at various times of the year, but you’ll also find a variety of other sharks in those locations.
This also means you may need to be cautious of large sharks, which are known to grab unsuspecting divers by the neck and drag them into the water.
And then there’s the matter of the sharks themselves.
Great whites are incredibly aggressive and can bite even bigger than a great yellow.
And they have very sharp teeth.
If they’re lucky, they will also eat you, which could be a bit of a shock to a beginner.
So if you have any doubts about the right sharks to be watching, here are some good advice from shark experts: Keep an eye on your partner when you’re watching, but don’t let your guard down.
They’re going to be doing what they do to make sure you’re OK.
And you’ll be in good company, too, since the sharks here are known for their social behaviour and friendly behaviour.
And if you can’t keep your guard up, they’ll be watching you.
But don’t be too surprised if they’re a bit rough with you, because they are, too.
There are a number of other great whites that are known as “hosts” and that is how they are known.
These great whites are known and accepted by many divers, but they’re also known for feeding and displaying behaviour that’s quite different to what most people associate with a host.
They can be quite intimidating at first, but as you become more familiar with them, you’re likely to become friends.
Hosts don’t necessarily have to be big sharks, either, and can be great for beginners and experts alike.
For example, the great white at Black Bay is a known feeder and will feed you, but if you need to get close to the sharks, you could try and grab them with your hands or a large object such as a chair or something.
Also, if you want to feed the sharks for food, there is always a restaurant or cafe in the area that is open for dinner or a bite.
If your partner isn’t a host, you might have to keep an eye out for a great black or a blue shark that may be feeding.
