Shark Cage Diving & Breaching 2012 Highlights

By | October 10th, 2012|Tour Happening's|

Shark Cage Diving & Breaching 2012 Season Highlights Howzit Sharkies. I trust you have all had a great time this past season enjoying our blogs, and im sure some of you had great times with us on our shark cage diving and breaching trips. It has been a mixed up season with some lengthy gaps of no sharks. Here is run down on how I saw the season for 2012: Our shark cage diving trips commenced this year in February,  and since I have been with African Shark Eco Charters, we have never missed a day in Feb for the past 3 seasons with regards to sightings. We had a great month with great white shark numbers varying from 1 all the way up to 8 or 9 on some trips. The scavenging normally happens at this time of the year as the seal pups are starting to venture away [...]

Shark cage diving- a “Wonderful Experience!”

By | October 6th, 2012|Tour Happening's|

Shark Cage Diving- a “Wonderful Experience!” Our Boat " Blue Pointer 2" This trip was truly an epic experience. From the time I booked the trip to stepping off the boat at the end, everything was handled very professionally and efficiently by the staff of this family-owned business. Booking the trip by email went smoothly and I was given options on payment which was very nice. They explained that even though I had to put a credit card on file, I could pay cash at the end to save the 3% added to non-cash transactions. So I was able to plan that part ahead of time. I chose to book the optional round trip transportation from my hotel and our driver was on time, very nice, and the drive to Simon's Town was pretty quick (about 45 minutes). Once we arrived, we all boarded and headed out immediately [...]

Shark Cage Diving “SHARK!!!!”

By | October 3rd, 2012|Tour Happening's|

Shark Cage Diving “SHARK!!!!” This tour was beyond my expectations. My wife and I took the morning Shark Trip our first day in South Africa. We saw about 10 different great whites that came right up to the boat (and next to the cage). We were also lucky enough to see a kill and a breach on our decoy. The team from African Shark Eco-Charters was extremely professional and knowledgable and I felt completely safe (well as safe as can be when you are face to face with a 12 ft great white) with them as our guides. I highly reccommed anyone to use this company if they want to use see great whites in action.

Shark Cage Diving trip 20 Sept 2012

By | September 20th, 2012|Tour Happening's|

Shark Cage Diving trip report: We had a phenomenal Great White Shark join us on our shark cage diving trip this morning. We only saw a total of two sharks for the duration of the shark cage diving trip, but the one Great White Shark stuck around our boat the entire time! We had a very small group of people on the shark cage diving trip this morning, which is  just as well because we had to turn back early as the wind started picking up quite a bit. We did manage to dive all the guests twice though, so they were all happy with that! The water vizibility was still very good today, which allowed for wonderful views of the Great White Sharks  from the  shark cage. We were also blessed with spectacular sightings of the Common Dolphins on our run back from Seal Island. Join us for a shark cage [...]
