In 2018, the Shark Shield company became Ocean Guardian®. The change of name reflects our bigger ambition – to make you safe whatever you enjoy doing in the Ocean – while also protecting the planet we call home.

Ocean Guardian, powered by Shark Shield Technology, is the world’s only scientifically proven electrical shark deterrent. Nothing is more effective.

Sharks have short-range electrical receptors in their snouts used for finding food, Ocean Guardian’s government approved, and patented technology creates a powerful three-dimensional electrical field which causes unbearable spasms in these sensitive receptors turning sharks away, including Great Whites.

Ocean Guardian has worked tirelessly over 20-years in partnership with the world’s leading experts in sharks, including the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board in South Africa and independent universities, resulting in peer-reviewed science journals confirming the technologies effectiveness in deterring sharks.

Ocean Guardian safety products are trusted by surfers, divers, and ocean lovers around the world and are recommended safety equipment in professional industries such navies and abalone diving. With no known permanent harm to sharks, the products directly support the conservation of sharks and other marine life by removing the need for shark nets and culling, ensuring the ocean can be shared – safely and in harmony with nature. They are the ultimate ocean guardian.
