Sharkbanz technology is the result of over a decade's worth of peer-reviewed scientific research on the use of magnetic technology as an active and effective shark deterrent.

Sharkbanz products are constructed with premium materials for enhanced comfort, durability, and performance.

All Sharkbanz users should be aware that sharks are wild animals and unpredictable. Our patented technology has been extensively tested, researched, and proven as an effective shark deterrent, but Sharkbanz have not been tested on all species of sharks. Sharkbanz can reduce the risk of shark interactions, but there is no 100% guarantee that interactions will not take place.

There should never be any attempt to entice sharks to interact with humans, with or without Sharkbanz.

Any human activity in the water near sharks must always be considered as possessing a considerable degree of risk which is assumed solely by the wearer.

Tell an on-duty lifesaver or lifeguard if you see a shark.

Stay close to shore when swimming.

Stay out of the water with bleeding cuts or wounds.

It's best to swim, dive or surf with other people.

Avoid swimming and surfing at dawn, dusk and night – sharks can see you but you can’t see them.

Keep away from murky, dirty water, and waters with known effluents or sewage.

Avoid areas used by recreational or commercial fishers.

Avoid areas with signs of bait fish or fish feeding activity; diving seabirds are a good indicator of fish activity.

Dolphins do not indicate the absence of sharks; both often feed together on the same food, and sharks are known to eat dolphins.

Be aware that sharks may be present between sandbars or near steep drop offs.

Steer clear of swimming in canals and swimming or surfing in river/harbour mouths.

Avoid having pets in the water with you.

Keep away from shark nets and other shark mitigation measures.

Consider using a personal deterrent.*
