My favourite thing about Seal Island is…

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 [...]

Great Whites sharks Seal Island in False Bay is unbelievable!

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 [...]

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 [...]

Shark Spotting with Rob Lawrence

Rob Lawrence Rob, owner of African Shark Eco-charters is sitting on the viewing platform of the boat busy chatting to guests and shark spotting. Shark Spotting is a very important role for any crew member, as you constantly have to keep a close look out for the great white shark. Great White Sharks can swim incredibly fast and if you are looking in the wrong direction, you may miss out not only seeing  a potential breach, but taking a photo of it as well.

Great White Sharks test our patience

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.

Great White Slashed Dorsal Fin

We have seen this shark on a number of occasions at Seal Island ( False Bay). Its dorsal fin is badly damaged, most likely from a boats propeller.

Shark cage diving with scuba is best!

Don’t deny it! When you are swimming in the water and a piece of seaweed brushes against your leg you freak out!  This is just a funny caption I found about how a shark might feel!  Wouldn’t it be amazing to know what they were thinking? I think we sometimes feel uneasy in the ocean because it is so vast and unknown. It is not our natural place and we don’t belong as a shark belongs. Viewing great white sharks under the surface of the ocean is so peaceful; their grace and beauty underwater is unexpected and awe-inspiring which makes [...]
