Seven Gill Cow Shark at Seal Island, South Africa

Posted on Friday, 23 August 2019

False Bay ( 45 minutes from Cape Town, half day trip)

 

This location has enjoyed good sightings of Cow sharks at Seal Island in 4 - 5 meter water visibility in the last week on most of the trips.  The water temp is 14.5 degrees. The bay is alive with marinelife and most of the trips have had the pleasure of witnessing breaching Humpback whales and / or seeing pods of Common Dolphin.  

 

Gansbaai ( 2 1/2 hours from Cape Town, full day trip due to travel times)

 

This location continues to rock with good sightings of Great White sharks. The water visbility is limited to +- 1 meter due to the inshore working conditions and the water temp is between 14 - 15 degrees.  

 

Mossel Bay ( 5 hours from Cape Town, full day due to travel times)

 

Good sightings with between 5 - 8 different Great White sharks per trip. The water visibility is between 2- 3 meters and the water temp is much the same as Gansbaai sitting at +- 15 degrees.
