Great White Shark Hotspots of South Africa
What did the Great White Shark hotspots of South Africa have instore for us today.
Shark Diving Cape Town
Our shark dive location for today was Seal Island in False Bay, a short 20 minutes boat ride from Simon's Town pier. The wind and swell was higher than usual but workable. Seal Island is home to 64 000 Cape Fure Seals, the biggest seal colony. White Pointer, our vessel, anchored in the channel and whilst we waited for some action, the guests munched on some good, and not so good for you snacks. We were visted by a Stingray to which the guests entered the shark cage excitedly. The Stingray was very active feeding on the chum that floated in the water. On the way back to the harbour we had a visit from a pod of Common Dolphins. Every where one looked, there were dolphins. The water clarity was three meters with a water temperature of 15.5 degrees Celsius.
Shark Diving Gansbaai
A wild Wednesday out in the bay, as the Bronze whalers and Cape Fur seals came to play...The Bronze whaler sharks appeared quickly today and we had some awesome sightings. A White-chinned petrel was one of a number of sea birds we saw this morning whilst on anchor. Sightings included four Copper sharks, The water clarity was 1.5 meters with a very cool water temperature of 13.6 degrees Celsius.
