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

 

This location has enjoyed good sightings of Cow sharks at Seal Island in 2 - 3 meter water visibility in the last week. The water temp is a cool 13,5 degrees but nothing the warm wetsuits can't handle. 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.  We have space tomorrow and Sunday with Monday's weather looking tricky at this point.

 

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.  Sunday's weather looking doable for now with Monday a no go.

 

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. Weather is good for the next 3 days however space is limited.
