African Shark Eco-Charters – And The High Season Begins!

May 12th A spectacular start to the official high season for African Shark Eco charters, with Tuesday being the first day back at sea after the storm. Obviously storms make great white sharks happy!!! Or else someone passed on the message that we were waiting for them to become active? Either way, I’m grateful! An early start out of the Simon's Town harbour led to us towing our seal decoy past Seal Island as the sun rose. Almost immediately Rob spotted a surface predation. Racing over to the area we caught the last part of the seals demise, complete with [...]

“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 [...]

Shark Cage Diving – Breathtaking, but not scary!

Shark cage diving with African Shark Eco-Charters   Shark cage diving with African Shark Eco-Charters - “Breathtaking, but not scary!” Reviewed 17 February 2014 "An unforgettable experience. From start to end, the trip was amazing. The office staff was incredibly helpful in communicating frequently about our trip (weather was touch-and-go, so the decision to green-light the trip was made the previous day) and responding to 7pm text messages asking for directions to the pier. The dive itself was spectacular. It is an early start, but not bad if you're in Cape Town, and the trip out to Seal [...]

Shark Attack Survivor Slams WA Shark Cull

Australian navy diver and shark attack survivor, Paul de Gelder, recently described the Western Australian shark cull as a "stupid" and "knee-jerk reaction". Paul de Gelder lost a leg and a forearm due to an attack by a bull shark while practicing exercises in Sydney Harbour in 2009. But despite his past experience, he continues to speak out in defense of the sharks in our oceans, and has lots to say when it comes to the planned slaughter of sharks in Western Australia with the new shark cull policy. It is always a tragedy when someone loses their life to a [...]
