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 [...]

Great White Sharks back at Seal Island

[pullquote]Thank you Rob and Karen and  for offering me an educational trip. It was a great experience. Herman, guest house owner.[/pullquote]   Great White Sharks are back at Seal Island and our first trips have gone very well with four sharks seen on both trips and our guests successfully managing to dive.

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.

AIRJAWS Tour on YOU TUBE

HERE IS AN OVERVIEW OF OUR "AIRJAWS" TOUR. The AIRJAWS Tour is a shark cage diving, and breaching trip.
