Playful great whites makes shark cage diving fun

  A great white shark glides past the boat. Our sleepy morning guests may wonder how the ASEC crew members are able to motivate themselves to work at 6 am each morning. For me, beautiful days like today make the early mornings worthwhile. The water was incredibly still as we bobbed about under a lovely False Bay sunrise, waiting for the great white sharks to hunt. The hunting activity was fairly quiet, but we did see a wonderful aerial breach on a group of seals and a breach on another boat’s decoy. We then anchored for a morning [...]

Great White Sharks-Survival of the fittest

Cage diving with African Shark Eco-ChartersSurvival of the fittest The process of evolution through natural selection or global events (i.e. ice ages, volcanic eruptions, asteroid strikes, and human driven extinctions) has claimed the fates of many species and species groups over the millennia. Sharks, however, stand out as one of the few families to survive both cataclysmic events and the slower genetic process of natural selection. Sharks are one of evolutions most classic and enduring success stories. The earliest ancestors of modern sharks can be traced back about 425 million years, which is 200 million years before the earliest known [...]

Great White sharks are back to see you cage diving!

 Cage Diving and Breaching trips in Simon's Town, South Africa. After a slow May, we've been having positive signs the past week of the great white sharks returning to their favourite cape fur seal hunting grounds, Seal Island, False Bay!  It is clear to us that the sharks are back!  And so, today the rain and wind had little chance of dampening our spirits. Natural predations and kill slicks of Cape Fur Seals have indicated their presence, however, today was the first day in a few weeks we have had the sharks around our boat, Blue Pointer 2, showing their famous curiosity. There [...]

Shark cage diving with African Shark Eco-Charters – A definite MUST!

“A definite MUST!!” Being a South African that now lives abroad... a trip home would not be complete without joining the African Shark Eco-Charters crew again! Every aspect of my experience far exceeded my expectations. Booking my date was a breeze and the customer service was fantastic. The crew were fun and had a wealth of knowledge about all marine and coastal wildlife. Their passion was palpable. I would ,and do, recommend ASEC to everyone!!!   Cage Diving with the Great White Shark.

Blue Pointer Shark Diving Boat

Blue Pointer 2 Here is a lovely pic of our boat the Blue Pointer 2. The Blue Pointer 2 is a custom designed 2006 36ft GECAT marine catamaran. The boat is spacious and is a very good platform to photograph breaching and hunting behaviour. The vessel has a walk around cabin as well as a large viewing deck which provides an alternate angle for filming from a raised vantage point. Being a catamaran, the boat is very stable once on anchor during diving operations. The vessel has an onboard toilet and a separate change room.           We [...]

Great White Sharks test our patience

  Waiting for sharks is a game of patience. Some times the great white sharks can show up in minutes, other times it may take hours for them to come.

Great White Slashed Dorsal Fin

We have seen this shark on a number of occasions at Seal Island ( False Bay). Its dorsal fin is badly damaged, most likely from a boats propeller.
