What a “great white” shark trip

What a cracking afternoon trip at False Bay Seal Island today The weather was a perfect 30'c, the sea calm and flat, and the water a nice 19-20'c. We had   6 great white sharks up to the boat, and wait for it,one  full breach and a successful predation next to our boat! How awesome is that! This is the earliest we have ever recorded a breach. On the way back to Simons Town we came across a large school of about 200 common dolphins.   Guests having a great shark trip with us.

The beautiful shark fin

There is something so evocative about a dorsal fin of a great white shark. I love this pic we took on a trip a few days ago. I love how the fin beautifully and powerfully cuts through the water, causing its own waves. What feelings does this invoke in you? Fear? Respect? Awe? Power? For each person its something different. However, to see a great white in person, is amazing and will certainly change any misconceptions you have. You will come away respecting nature and understanding why people like us are so passionate about these super predators! To book your [...]

Updating our crew photo’s

We are busy updating our crew pics and I asked Rob to take a pic of  Wellington today. I think this pic of Wellington aka Welly, is a great one. Wellington is the main man when it comes to handling the shark bait and the seal shaped decoy! He likes to name each seal decoy and is very good at judging the sharks behaviour. He is also really good at making sure the great white sharks do not eat our bait. The aim of the bait is to act as an attractant. We do not want the sharks to eat the bait, [...]

What must I bring on my great white shark trip

A very common question we receive from our guests is what must I bring on my great white shark trip? These are the "must" bring. Rain/wind jacket.This is a non negotiable.You do not want to spend your shark trip huddled in the cabin, while everyone is watching a great white shark breaching or seeing a natural predation event. Sun block. The African Sun is very harsh, even in winter time, and being on the ocean means you are exposed to the rays that are reflected from the ocean. Bring at least a factor 30 with you. A Sun hat will [...]

Fin printing of Great White Sharks

GREAT WHITE SHARK FIN PRINTING All White Sharks are the same........right ? Wrong. Just like us they are individuals with different behaviour patterns, markings and colouration. Some even show a timid nature while others are bold and confident. White Shark expert Rob Lawrence teaches guests on-board how to identify sharks and uses his knowledge to predict how they will behave around the boat and the cage.
