An Oamaruvian is taking his love for sharks to the next level.
Twenty-two-year-old Cody Stephens has been fascinated with sharks since he was a young boy and is off on a five-day expedition to find out more about the animal he loves.
His five-day expedition to Port Lincoln in South Australia will see him cage dive with sharks just off Neptune Island, where some of the biggest great white sharks live.
Mr Stephens said he was hoping to see one at least 20ft (6m)long.
