The world’s first active shark deterrent band.
For a lot of us, we love to see sharks. But there are some people who have a fear so strong it keeps them out of the water.
Even though sharks are only responsible for on average 4 deaths per year (5 in 2019), and about 140 attacks worldwide, 40% of these the sharks are provoked - compare this with the 4.7 million people bitten by dogs each year - sharks get a bad rap.
The Sharkbanz are designed for beachgoers, swimmers and surfers. It uses patented magnetic technology developed by marine biologists to deter predatory shark species.
We offer this product for water users who want to reduce any shark related fears they have so they can enjoy the ocean, also yachties who are visiting isolated areas and spearfishes who will be attracting unwanted attention from sharks due to the fish they are towing on their floats.

How it works
Sharkbanz’s patented magnetic technology is the result of long-term scientific research and testing. Sharkbanz utilize powerful permanent magnets to create an effective shark deterrent that’s always on and require no batteries or charging. When sharks approach Sharkbanz, they detect the device’s strong electromagnetic field, which provides a sudden sensation that is thousands of times stronger than the signal produced by anything in a shark’s normal food chain. Consequently, sharks are deterred away from Sharkbanz. This cause and effect is analogous to having a bright light suddenly shined in your eyes in a dark room. You would not be hurt, but you would want to turn away.
