Cage diving with Great White Sharks – a must while in Cape Town

Cage diving with Great White Sharks - a must while in Cape Town " What a crazy fun experience! I will start out by saying, if you get motion sickness be sure to take your meds! The sea looked extremely calm on shore but was very different once out where we anchored. The entire crew is very professional and provided good instruction throughout the entire morning. The journey begins with a 25 minute boat ride to Seal Island where you can see thousands of seals and begin to watch for shark kills. After awhile a decoy seal is pulled behind [...]

African Shark Eco-Charters “Exceeds expectations in every way!”

African Shark Eco-Charters “Exceeds expectations in every way!” Reviewed July 23, 2013 We had an absolutely incredible tour with African Shark Eco Charters last month! Upon arriving in Simon's Town, we were promptly greeted by a crew member and shown to the boat. After a short boat ride, we were at world famous Seal Island, where we saw multiple sharks breaching and hunting seals. It was amazing! The crew was very knowledgable and professional and were able to answer an questions we had. After watching the sharks hunt, we had the opportunity to get in the cage with them. They [...]

Why Do Great White Sharks Move Inshore

Why do Great White Sharks move inshore? The Great White Sharks’ inshore movement starts to be seen as spring time arrives in Cape Town. As the sea temperatures begin to warm up False Bay, and the wind patterns start to change from a North Westerly to a South Easterly wind , the bay's see's an abundant of sea life coming in. Its still very cold here in False Bay, and the SE wind is icy to our bones, but for the last two weeks the SE wind has been blowing, and already there has been an inshore shark sighting. It [...]

Alan Fox searches for Great White Sharks

We met the crew of African Shark Eco-Charters on the dock in Simon's Town, South Africa, an hour before sunrise. It was 40 degrees F with a 25 mph breeze blowing in from the ocean, wintertime in the Southern Hemisphere. Even as I zipped my windbreaker, I realized it was not quite up to the task. "We haven't been out for three days because of the weather, but we are going to try it today and see what happens," said divemaster Gary. "There are big swells out there, but the forecast says it may calm down later." We followed him [...]

Amazing Trip with African Shark Eco-Charters

“Amazing trip! Would definitely do again!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013 I went on the AirJaws trip last month July with African Shark Eco-Charters and had a great time! The weather hadn't been great for a few days and I was worried about cancellation, but I lucked out and the trip went as planned. The waters were still a bit rough, but the staff really did a great job to make the trip a wonderful experience for everyone. We did have a few seasick people, so I recommend taking some sort of tablet prior to arriving in [...]

Chose African Shark Eco-Charters

“Awesome experience ! Want to go back very shortly” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013 NEW Rob & Karen Lauwrence and their crew gave me an outstanding experience of shark watching. I took the Airjaws trip. Unfortunately on this morning, no shark was looking for natural predation or with a decoy (Mother Nature is like that ;-) With patience , we saw one, two and three different Great White Shark bigger and bigger. If I compare with Gansbaai trips, ASEC and Rob's Crew are offering a trip with fewer people in the boat. That make a big difference. [...]

“Great time on the water!”

“Great time on the water!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 NEW On August 18th we ventured out with African Shark Eco-Charters for a GREAT day of white shark cage diving. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Though the seas were a bit rough the captain did his best to get the boat in the best position for cage diving and sightseeing. I would recommend this adventure to anyone heading to the Capetown area. Do book two days or so incase you are unable to go out. I would also recommend staying in Simonstown, very nice little [...]

Eye to eye with a great white shark

So the Great white sharks have been buzzing lately with four, five sometimes even six or seven different great whites to the boat.                                                                A great white shark ( above) eye balls a cage diver. The predations have been pretty good too. We have noticed the the Great whites have been rather efficient in killing the cape fur seals recently with loads of what we call "one hit wonders" which [...]
