A seen on National Geographic. Swim off your boat with confidence!

The Ocean Guardian BOAT02 is the world's first innovative long-range shark deterrent system, powered by Shark Shield Technology and designed specifically for swimming.

The BOAT02 gives boat owners and their guests the confidence to enjoy the ocean anytime, anywhere. Imagine swimming off the back of your boat with peace of mind; knowing everyone is protected by Shark Shield Technology.

NOTE: With the exception of the first image, the product photos shown here are of the BOAT02 predecessor, the BOAT01. The main visual difference is that the BOAT02 has a much smaller buoy than the BOAT01.

Powered by Shark Shield Technology, the Ocean Guardian BOAT02 (formerly called the BOAT01 and the LR10) is the world’s first innovative long-range shark deterrent system designed specifically for boating. The BOAT02 is powered by Shark Shield Technology, the world’s only scientifically proven and independently tested shark deterrent technology. Boat owners and their guests will have the confidence to enjoy the ocean anytime, anywhere. Imagine swimming off the back of your boat with the family knowing that everyone is protected by proven shark deterrent technology!

Easy to deploy off the back of any vessel, the new BOAT02 is based on the proven design of the Ocean Guardian FREEDOM7 dive product and provides a large and powerful protective swimming area.

Powered by either the internal Lithium battery or from your vessel, you can also daisy chain up to five devices to create a “virtual net”. Device indicators include on/off, check the battery level, navigation lights, etc.

Drawn by the call of the ocean; sharks or no sharks, we’re still going out there! Our solution is scientific, lightweight and powerful. With Shark Shield, we’ve replaced fear with awe.

Shark Shield has taken 20 years to evolve into what it is today: proven, reliable and non-evasive shark deterrent technology. Our two decades of tireless scientific research gives you the peace of mind to swim, surf, kayak and dive into the blue without fear.

How it Works

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. You on the other hand, will feel a lot safer.

Powered by Shark Shield Technology, Ocean Guardian shark deterrents aren’t just designed to protect you, they protect the ocean too. So there’s no need for shark nets or needless culls. Best of all, it doesn’t harm the shark either.
