Great White Sharks mysterious migration

Migration is one of the great mysteries of the animal kingdom that continue to elude scientists worldwide. While this phenomenon is witnessed in all major animal groups, including birds, mammals, insects, crustaceans, fish, reptiles and amphibians, surprisingly little definitive knowledge is understood about its mechanisms and specifics.  Broadly, migration refers to the large scale movement of an animal group from one place to another.  However, the reasons or triggers for such movements are varied; including seasonal changes in weather patterns and food availability to breeding behaviour.

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.

Shark Spotting with Rob Lawrence

Rob Lawrence Rob, owner of African Shark Eco-charters is sitting on the viewing platform of the boat busy chatting to guests and shark spotting. Shark Spotting is a very important role for any crew member, as you constantly have to keep a close look out for the great white shark. Great White Sharks can swim incredibly fast and if you are looking in the wrong direction, you may miss out not only seeing  a potential breach, but taking a photo of it as well.
