Shark Cage Diving to Rock n Roll

By | February 25th, 2013|Tour Happening's| Thank you to our wonderful guest  Louis von Stebut for sharing this shark cage diving video with us! :) Here is some info about our trips for you to read. ———————————————————————————————————————————————- Simon’s Town is just 40min from Cape Town and the base from where our boat departs early in the morning. A short 20 minute will take you into False Bay, famous for the great white “Flying Sharks”, a term used for their highly athletic breaching and hunting behavior. NO QUALIFICATIONS for shark cage diving are necessary! The cage floats just under the surface of the water, and it is situated alongside the boat. Only two enter the cage at a time, all scuba equipment stays on board and only the scuba hose enters the cage, allowing you to enjoy a great dive without cumbersome, heavy tanks and gear. The average dive time is 20 minutes depending on the shark activity. Once everyone has had a [...]

Shark Cage Diving with a curious shark

By | February 25th, 2013|Tour Happening's|

Shark Cage Diving with a curious shark. We watched this beautiful great white shark carefully investigate this seal carcass, and then only after thoroughly checking it out, it decided that it was okay to chomp. The guests aboard our boat, the Blue Pointer 2, have the opportunity to to come shark cage diving with scuba gear, which is a rarity in this industry. Most companies allow you to hold your breath only, or just use a snorkel. Scuba diving with us needs no experience. The tanks stay on board the boat and just the dive hoses and mouth piece goes into the cage. This allows you to stay underwater and not miss that shark swimming by because you have had to come to the surface for air. Join us to see the great white sharks for yourself. Come cage diving with us. It will change your life, and change your perception for [...]

Shark cage diving with Graeme

By | February 21st, 2013|Tour Happening's|

Shark cage diving with Graeme I want to introduce myself. I am Graeme Grant, the newest member of the African Shark Eco Charters crew. Having worked in marine tourism for over 15 years, variously as a dive guide and skipper on the Garden Route as well as in the shark diving industry in KwaZulu Natal, I’ve been lucky enough to have spent hundreds of hours underwater with Zambezi (bull) sharks - my first shark love  – and tiger sharks among several other species of those sub-tropical waters.  My encounters with great white sharks have been few however and I’m so excited to have this opportunity to work with the ultimate-animal of the ocean, the great white shark. I am keen to study them and start to understand more about their nature and behaviour. I look forward to sharing more about the great white sharks and our shark cage diving trips soon.   [...]

Shark Cage Diving in False Bay….As good as it gets!

By | February 11th, 2013|Tour Happening's|

Shark Cage Diving in False Bay....As good as it gets! shark cage diving with African Shark Eco-Charters What’s the best thing about February in Cape Town? For us here at African Shark Eco-Charters and our avid sharkie followers locally and worldwide and the answer is easy....our return to Seal Island! This is the time of the year that our famous great white sharks or ‘men in grey suits’ make their presence known again at Seal Island in False Bay. Annually the sharks leave the island around the end of October and generally can be found cruising around inshore during the early summer months. February is the time of year we usually except to see ‘signs’ at the island that they have returned. Seals clustered tight to the rocks and no longer idling in the water around the island is an example of such a sign and indicates that [...]
