“Airjaws” is back with the first breach of the season!

At African Shark Eco-Charters  the “AIRJAWS” shark breaching trip is the most popular. It is a combination trip of shark breaching and shark cage diving. The season for AIRJAWS starts in May, but we have been very lucky to have seen our first Breach of the year. Shark Breaching is one of the hunting techniques that great white sharks use to surprise and kill its prey. They breach with such force  and explosive energy that it propels the shark right out of the water.   The best time is just before and at sunrise and mainly at certain  area’s around the island [...]

Great White Shark Trip With African Shark Eco-Charters – Simply Spectacular

Check out the latest review from one of our awesome guests who joined us this season. "After many hours of trying to decide on which company to go with my friend and I decided to book up for a scuba cage dive with African Shark Eco-Charters. The searching paid off as this was the best choice by far for the experience. I had been previously warned (by companies that don't use scuba) that using scuba can scare off the Great Whites and that they don't tend to come close to the cage. This is total rubbish the sharks weren't put of [...]

Shark Diving “Everything Was Incredibly Awesome!”

Shark Diving - “Everything Was Incredibly Awesome!” "We were fortunate to book a shark diving trip with Rob Lawrence and his crew on May 20, 2013.

RIDICULOUSLY COOL! We [...]
