Ocean Guardian Shark Shield for Swimming
The Ocean Guardian BOAT01 Shark Shield is ideal for swimming off a boat or jetty.
Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food. Ocean Guardian’s patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away, including Great Whites.

CREATE A PROTECTIVE VIRTUAL SWIMMING NET AROUND ANY VESSEL
The BOAT01 has been developed to keep your family safe, without affecting fish species. Shark Shield Technology has been developed to specifically take advantage of the highly sensitive electrical receptors called the “Ampullae of Lorenzini” present in a sharks snout. As fish are without these receptors, our Shark Shield Technology has negligible effect on them. Simply drop the BOAT01 power module with the antenna installed, off the back of your boat to freely drift around, providing a large and powerful protective swimming area.
