Shark Hotspots along the South African Coastline
Today was a beautiful day in all three shark hotspots along the South African Coastline. Let us look at each individual location.
Shark Diving Cape Town
What a lovely goup of guests we had today, from all over the world. We had America, Canada, and the United Kingdom. The guests chatted excitedly amongst each other as our shark boat wound its way from Simon's Town pier, past the Boulder's Beach, famous for the African Penguin colony, towards the lighthouses of Cape Point. After a power chum, the Apex crew dropped the shark cage into the water before tying the shark cage to the boat. We settled down to wait for our first sharks and we did not wait long before our beautiful first Blue shark arrived. About one meter in lenght, he came up to the cage for the cage divers with sharks to see. We had another 4 Blue sharks thereafter. Although the water clarity was 4 meters, all the guests saw the sharks from the cage. The water temperature was a cool 18 degrees Celsius. Thank you to all those who joined us.
Shark Diving Gansbaai
Today saw a big variety in our sightings with two different species of sharks, Cape Fur seals near the boat and at Geyser Rock, multiple sea birds including the African penguin and Brydes whales...one Great White and three Copper sharks in very poor water clarity, only 0.5 meters. The water temperature was a cool 16. 4 degrees Celsius
Shark Diving Mossel Bay
It was anthor day of no sharks for this location. With dark skies above, the boat anchored at Seal Island in Mossel Bay itself. This Island is just a few kilometers off Diaz beach. The crew did their best however there was no signs of any sharks, only the Cape Fur Seals that inhabit the island were seen playing in the water - a clear indication of no sharks in the area.
