My name is Stephen Waites and I have been operating daily Dolphin swim tours out from Glenelg, South Australia, now for 7 years (started January 2001). I started using the Ocean Guardian devices after there were a couple of Shark fatalities in the area in which we operate from.
We started by using one Mariner Shark Shield, but have now upgraded to three. This is so we are able to offer our swimming customers full coverage of protection.
Temptation trails two mermaid lines from the Stern of the vessel, five metres apart in which the swimmers hold onto. In the centre of these lines we run the three Ocean Guardians at two metre intervals.
We would never operate a Dolphin swim without these devices.
