Shark Sightings in the Western Cape
Good Morning Shark Cage Divers. The weather is looking tricky for the next few days. There are three to four meter swells predicted with strong winds. It may not be possible to get to sea.
Herewith the shark sightings in the Western Cape from the last trips.
Shark Diving Cape Town
Today's Cape Town shark cage diving trip was to the open ocean just off beautiful Cape Point. The conditions were flat seas, sunny skies and a calm day all round. The 12 guests, mostly from the United States were excited and chatted amongst themselves as White Pointer headed to the dive site. Once Ryan, our skipper and the crew, dropped the cage into the water, it could not have been ten minutes before we had five Blue sharks and two Mako sharks. These sharks were active around the shark cage and although the water clarity was a mere four meters, the guests had good viewing opportunities.
Shark Diving Gansbaai
Due to inclement weather conditions, this location did not operate a trip today It seems these weather conditions are spreading along the Cape Coastline and will affect the other shark dive locations over the next few days . Yesterday's shark diving trip in Gansbaai had great activity with two different species of sharks . How lucky for the guests! The species included a Great White shark and three Copper sharks. The water clarity was very poor indeed, and the bait handler had to be very skilled in bringing the sharks alongside the cage for the cage diving shark guests to see them. The water temperature was a 16. 4 degrees Celsius.
Shark Diving Mossel Bay
It was yet another day of no sharks for this location. It was not for lack of tryng. There are two locations that this area can operate in. There is their 'Seal Island' and there is an inshore area. They try both locations regularly hoping for a Great White shark sighting.
