The ‘Flying’ AIRJAWS Great White’s of Seal Island

The Unique ‘Flying’ AIRJAWS Great White Sharks of Seal Island   We have had incredible activity the past few weeks at Seal Island in False Bay. The great white sharks have been giving our tourists quite the show. We may make you wake up and get out of bed very early in the morning (and on vacation too!) but I hope it’s worth it to see our famous ‘flying’ sharks hunting seals with a vengeance. Seal Island is the only place in the world where great white sharks consistently jump out of the water as part of their hunting strategy; [...]

Shark diving with GoPro

Shark diving with GoPro So July is here and it started off with some very strong winds, forcing us to cancel a lot of our shark cage diving trips to Seal Island. With saying that... never fear, the Great Whites are still here. The other day the weather man got it all wrong, predicting winds that didn't seem to come through till the afternoon. With a big scramble the African Shark Eco Charters team managed to phone our guests and get one of our Great White shark cage diving trips under way. Leaving the harbour only at 10:50am, it was [...]

Familiar faces on our great white shark trips

Familiar Faces on our great white shark trips. I know our blogging has been a bit on the slow side, but we have been so busy on our great white shark trips that we have scarcely had a chance to sit down and blog. So, forgive us, but here is a great one for you! So June has just gone and it hasn't failed to provide us with some amazing predation activity and breaches. There also hasn't been a shortage of great whites around the boat either. There's been plenty happy faces on our great white shark trips, both in [...]

Dive with Great White Sharks- One Of Oceans Great Secrets

Come Dive with great white sharks. A creature that remains one of the ocean’s great secrets. Mysterious, cloaked in myth, superstition and an abundance of bad press, there are few known actual facts about these elusive predators. We do know that they are far more fearsome in our imaginations than in reality. Perhaps it is because we know so little about them that we fear them so irrationally. While we know a lot about their physical characteristics and internal physiology and even a good deal about their feeding behaviour, this is where the knowledge ends.  How much of their behaviour is [...]

Shark cage diving is best experienced with scuba

Shark Cage Diving. African Shark Eco-Charters What makes shark cage diving with African Shark Eco-Charters different? Well, lots of things, but the actual shark cage diving on our boat, the Blue Pointer, is what sets us firmly apart. In the past few weeks I cannot help but notice how many guests have mentioned to me while out on a trip how awesome it is that we offer our shark cage diving with scuba regulators on our trips.  Guests keep revealing to me, especially after they dive, how they can’t imagine as incredible of an adventure if you have [...]
