Shark cage diving? Choose African Shark Eco-Charters. Here is why! My favourite thing about Seal Island is... Of all the things that make Seal Island in False Bay special, one particular aspect stands out for me. For a few short moments during sunrise each morning the island is alive with the natural predation activity of the great white sharks on the cape fur seals. While some of our guests may not be too thrilled with the very early start in the morning, it becomes well worth it for the opportunity to witness these top predators hunt. Seal Island is so [...]
Hello Shark Lovers. Well today’s post I have decided to tell you a little bit about our Decoy “Unlucky”! Now I have you thinking why we called it “Unlucky” here is the story behind our best friend. We mentioned in a recent post that we had just completed a BBC documentary called Earth Flight 3D, now that production crew had 3 fantastic decoys made, very professionally made. The decoy has eyes, a tongue, and flippers. It is made of soft foam, very important so it does not damage the sharks teeth when he bites it. Boy did they work like [...]

False Bay: Full of life and ready to entertain you! The past few days at Seal Island in False Bay have been unbelievable! After the strong storm over the weekend, dawn broke Monday morning on the water to a beautiful sunrise over the mountains and a very welcomed warm, sunny day. We started the morning with an amazing breach on our decoy by one of our favourite and most well-known great white sharks, ‘Cuz’. The breach was a full, out of the water hit on our fake seal, leaving all guests and crew on board the Blue Pointer 2 jumping [...]
MADIBA Howdy Fellow Sharkies…… So you all probably wondering I have headed this Blog MADIBA….Well here it goes. MADIBA is the nickname not only to our ex president Nelson Mandela who birthday we celebrated on the 18th July 2012 but also to a shark that was tagged as part of the OCEARCH tagging project. This shark was tagged on the 8th March 2012 up the coast in Mossel Bay. This shark payed us a visit 2 weeks ago, meaning this animal has swum more than 300km down the coast to Seal Island. Over 35 sharks were tagged. This is the first [...]
Cage diving with African Shark Eco-ChartersSurvival of the fittest The process of evolution through natural selection or global events (i.e. ice ages, volcanic eruptions, asteroid strikes, and human driven extinctions) has claimed the fates of many species and species groups over the millennia. Sharks, however, stand out as one of the few families to survive both cataclysmic events and the slower genetic process of natural selection. Sharks are one of evolutions most classic and enduring success stories. The earliest ancestors of modern sharks can be traced back about 425 million years, which is 200 million years before the earliest known [...]
THE MAGIC OF FALSE BAY, SOUTH AFRICA.
Waiting for sharks is a game of patience. Some times the great white sharks can show up in minutes, other times it may take hours for them to come.
