Job Shadowing

Aaishah Miller – Job Shadowing with African Shark Eco-Charters Hi my name is Aaishah Miller, I am 16 years old and currently job shadowing at ASEC. On the 29th June I went on my first shark trip. The boat trip to seal island alone was really amazing, just watching all the buildings disappear as the boat continued to move forward. Along the way to seal island I saw dolphins swimming along with the boat, which was really amazing since I had never seen a dolphin before ,besides on tv and in books. We finally arrived at seal island and unfortunately [...]

Brilliant Tripadvisor review

“Orca and Great White trip of a lifetime” Reviewed 27 March 2015 Myself and my boyfriend just so happened to be on a tour where we stumbled upon a pod of orcas as soon as we left the jetty (I think the whole crew were in agreement that it was the best trip of the season!) The skipper Rob spotted them immediately and was respectful when following them, we didn't chase them at close range, but they were playful enough to come to us and swim right under our boat. Respect for creatures like that is something that's extremely important [...]

Cage Diving in Simons Town – “Wonderful Experience!”

Cage Diving “Wonderful Experience!” Reviewed September 16, 2012 This trip was truly an epic experience. From the time I booked the trip to stepping off the boat at the end, everything was handled very professionally and efficiently by the staff of this family-owned business. Booking the trip by email went smoothly and I was given options on payment which was very nice. They explained that even though I had to put a credit card on file, I could pay cash at the end to save the 3% added to non-cash transactions. So I was able to plan that part ahead [...]

Our shark cage diving was “Beyond Expectations”

Shark cage diving review “Beyond Expectations” Reviewed September 24, 2012 Early morning pickup in Cape Town arranged by Eco Tours, Allie met us on the dock and we were off in no time. Spectacular ride out to seal island, 100's of dolphin riding the bow wake out with us. Backside of Table Mountain framed against False Bay with the sun rising...I was just happy to be living this moment. My buddy and I were first in the shark cage, and within minutes they had our oxygen hose set and under the water we went. Spent 20 of the most exhilarating [...]

Predation Station-False Bay

Predation Station-False Bay Hello Fello Sharkies... This week we did a good number of trip,  seeing some excellent sharks up to the boats. The sharks hunting has been a lot more quieter this week seeing maybe 1 or 2 predations on each morning, which is typical of the sightings in early September. Some of them have been really good to watch and others one hit wonders (this is what we call when a shark has one go at the seal and that's all you see). One particular predation was really good to get to and went on for a long [...]

Great White sharks are back to see you cage diving!

 Cage Diving and Breaching trips in Simon's Town, South Africa. After a slow May, we've been having positive signs the past week of the great white sharks returning to their favourite cape fur seal hunting grounds, Seal Island, False Bay!  It is clear to us that the sharks are back!  And so, today the rain and wind had little chance of dampening our spirits. Natural predations and kill slicks of Cape Fur Seals have indicated their presence, however, today was the first day in a few weeks we have had the sharks around our boat, Blue Pointer 2, showing their famous curiosity. There [...]
