Seven Gilled Cow Shark Diving Trip – Simon’s Town
WE ARE NOW SHARK CAGE DIVING WITH THE SEVEN GILLED COW SHARKS.
NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY FOR SHARK DIVING WITH THE COW SHARKS AT SEAL ISLAND, FALSE BAY
These rarely seen sharks are extremely special. There is nowhere else in the world where they can be so easily accessed as in False Bay. They are found in between the shallow kelp forests in Marine Protected reef areas and now seen at Seal Island in False Bay.
Cow Sharks will readily approach divers to get a closer look which means they swim right up to you and only turn at the very last minute. The size range seen by divers is between 1 – 3 meters.
The Seven gilled Cowsharks are very curious and confident sharks. During certain times of the year we find them at Seal Island, False Bay.
The Seven Gilled Cowshark, or Spotted Cow shark, are formidable predators of seals, fish and other sharks, and are known as “wolves of the sea”, because of their extraordinary co-operative hunting behaviour. Cow sharks are considered the most primitive of all the sharks, because their skeletons resemble those of ancient extinct forms, with few modern adaptations
We have been fortunate enough to see regularly enough at one location to be able to confidently guide dives there with an 85% chance of success.
