“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 [...]

African Shark Eco-Charters Joins WA Shark Cull Protest In Cape Town

African Shark Eco-Charters joined roughly 200 chanting shark cull protestors outside the Cape Town International Convention Centre this morning where Western Australian's Premier, Colin Barnett, was giving a keynote speech for the African Mining Indaba. Following the shark protests against the WA shark cull policy throughout Australia recently, fellow Great White Shark activists in Cape Town decided to show their support against the shark cull policy as well, and to speak up for the sharks that we share across our oceans. There was tight security set up around the CTICC for the Mining Indaba Conference which had prevented the protest group confronting [...]

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 [...]
