“Simply Brilliant!”

[pullquote] so glad I did it with African Shark Eco-Charters, will recommend them to anyone who decides to do this! [/pullquote] Very professional while being friendly and felt like a family. It was a pleasure to do the trip with you! Thank you, Rob, Allie and Naomi! Booked a few months before I came out to SA and was very easy and was kept updated to confirm that the trip was on. The trip itself was excellent, saw loads of sharks, had a great dive in the cage, got loads of photos and got humpbacks and dolphins into the price. Cage [...]

“One of a Kind”

“One of a Kind”[pullquote]an amazing experience[/pullquote] Reviewed May 31, 2012 This was an amazing experience. It was not only the sharks that made the trip extraordinary but the excitement of the crew that made this a 'one of a kind' experience. The expertise of captain Rob as well as the crews' passion to give the customer the best time possible makes this charter unbeatable. It would be a shame to use anyone else for a shark dive.

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.
