Great White Shark breaching – “Great trip, can’t wait to go back!”

“Great trip, can't wait to go back!” "We went in May and had a couple of reschedules due to weather. Make sure you plan your trip put there early on your vacation so that you have time to reschedule if needs be. Rob and crew were amazing and very accommodating. We got into the sharks in about 45 minutes and had them around for about 20-30 min. Water was a little cold, but not too bad. On the way back saw lots of dolphins and a whale. Oh yeah, if the smell of seal crap bothers you, you might want [...]

Great White Shark breaching – beyond my wildest dreams

“Beyond my Wildest Dreams” We went out with ASEC for an AIRJAWS dive in mid-June and it was absolutely the highlight of our 3 week trip in South Africa. Captain Rob and his crew are passionate, enthusiastic and highly knowledgeable about the Great Whites and they will do everything in their powers to ensure the best possible experience for your dive trip. Weather can be a problem in False Bay and cause trip cancelations, so I would suggest scheduling your dive trip early on in your stay so if necessary, you could go another day. Two days before our scheduled [...]

Help The Great White Sharks By Going Shark Cage Diving

  Shark Cage Diving. African Shark Eco-Charters The Shark Cage Diving Industry Contributes To The Education Of The Public Shark cage diving has contributed largely to the conservation of the Great White Shark. After the release of Jaws in 1975, a 'shark-attack' hysteria arose and the Great White Shark was considered to be a man-eating monster. This launched a killing frenzy motivated by fear, and anglers and trophy hunters from the USA, Australia and South Africa set out to sea to bring back as many Great White Sharks as possible. As the death toll mounted over the passing [...]

At the end of last month, based on dots showing where signal was transmitted from, Brenda swam around the Mozambique Channel. On October 4, she was near the shoreline and a line from this point shows [...]

Shark Cage Diving “Once in a lifetime!”

Shark Cage Diving “Once in a lifetime!” I recently did the Air Jaws tour in mid-September with my boyfriend and another couple. Prior to booking the trip, I received lots of helpful information about the tour and what could realistically be expected from it. I felt very confident booking with the company that NatGeo and Discovery Channel use, regardless of what the shark sighting outcome would be. Thankfully we were not disappointed!! The morning of the trip we met the company at the main docks and hopped on board. The owner of the company, Rob, was our captain that day [...]

Great White Fascination Leaving Simons Town harbour on the way shark cage diving. Seal Island False Bay My first season with African Shark Eco Charters has been a whirlwind of dramatic hunting sequences, teeth, claws, flying sharks, chewed decoys and excited tourists.  The 2012 great white shark season has been action packed and I have loved and appreciated every moment of it. Last week on the Blue Pointer 2 a guest told me she was surprised to find that the crew members were as thrilled as the tourists were about seeing great white sharks.  She couldn’t believe we [...]

Shark Cage Diving “SHARK!!!!”

Shark Cage Diving “SHARK!!!!” This tour was beyond my expectations. My wife and I took the morning Shark Trip our first day in South Africa. We saw about 10 different great whites that came right up to the boat (and next to the cage). We were also lucky enough to see a kill and a breach on our decoy. The team from African Shark Eco-Charters was extremely professional and knowledgable and I felt completely safe (well as safe as can be when you are face to face with a 12 ft great white) with them as our guides. I highly [...]
