Dive with Great White Shark
Posted on Tuesday, 7 January 2020
Shark Diving Cage Town
Whoooo! The first Great White shark sighted in 20 months and a beautiful big four meter shark at that! What is most surprising is the month. When we had Great White shark sightings previously, it was usually from February to September. What was a Great white shark doing at Seal Island in January? This same shark was reported to have been seen a few days later inshore. The guests were over the moon as the communication prior to the trip was there were no Great white sharks to be seen. To add to the day was a water clarity of between 6 - 8 meters which makes for excellent sightings of the sharks from the cage and the water temperature was a warm is 18.6 degrees Celcius.

Shark Diving Gansbaai
A beautiful day with lots of Bronze whaler sharks. The guests boarded the shark boat in Kleinbaai, Gansbaai and headed to the inshore area of Joubertsdam. This is where we anchored and waited for the sharks to appear. Joubertsdam is inshore which makes for poor water clarity due to the depth and the sandy bottom. This does affect the shark cage divers visibility and it requires skill from the shark handlers to bring the sharks close to the cage. The water temperature was a very warm 18.7 degrees Celcius.
Shark Diving Mossel Bay
Unfortunatley there was no shark sightings in Mossel Bay. This location has not seen a Great White or other shark sighting for two months. Please enquire directly if you wish to book this location.
