ABOUT US

       

Based in the small coastal township of Kiama we run a grass roots shark spotting program designed to provide continuous coverage of a swimming or surfing area. 

Our blimp mounted camera system provides a high definition aerial view to observers. We aim to provide adequate warning to beach users when sharks and other hazards are present in their vicinity.

 

 The program is supported by the Save Our Seas Foundation, the University of Wollongong, Kiama Municipal Council and has received funding from the Department of Primary Industries.

  Our Mission Statement

“We are committed to improving the safety of beach users by facilitating the continuous detection, monitoring, and study of ocean hazards including sharks and rips.”
