Shark Cage Diving trip 17 Sept 2012

Shark Cage Diving trip report: Another awesome shark cage diving trip this morning! We had a spectacular predation kill this morning to start off the trip, before we anchored up at Seal Island to start the shark cage diving. The water vizibility was not too great today, maybe only around 3 metres, but our guests still had some decent views of the Great White Sharks  from the  shark cage. We had five Great White Sharks up to the boat today, so there was plenty of shark activity for the guests to enjoy. Join us for a shark cage diving trip [...]

Shark cage diving, what a pleasure!

On our shark cage diving trips, we have being seeing some new great white sharks showing up to our boat some really relaxed animals that are totally comfortable with the cage and the bait. Certain sharks do not like the bait or shark cage and  they  have one look and move off. Others are calm and stay around and interact with us. This is the shark you want to have with guests on the boats and makes for  great shark cage diving. Today we had a really relaxed shark with us, on and off for most of the morning. Great [...]

Predation Station-False Bay

Predation Station-False Bay Hello Fello Sharkies... This week we did a good number of trip,  seeing some excellent sharks up to the boats. The sharks hunting has been a lot more quieter this week seeing maybe 1 or 2 predations on each morning, which is typical of the sightings in early September. Some of them have been really good to watch and others one hit wonders (this is what we call when a shark has one go at the seal and that's all you see). One particular predation was really good to get to and went on for a long [...]

My favourite thing about Seal Island is…

Shark cage diving? Choose African Shark Eco-Charters. Here is why! My favourite thing about Seal Island is... Of all the things that make Seal Island in False Bay special, one particular aspect stands out for me.  For a few short moments during sunrise each morning the island is alive with the natural predation activity of the great white sharks on the cape fur seals. While some of our guests may not be too thrilled with the very early start in the morning, it becomes well worth it for the opportunity to witness these top predators hunt. Seal Island is so [...]

“Guys to deal with, definitely!”

“Guys to deal with, definitely![pullquote]”But when you are there, you feel like you are in the family.[/pullquote] Reviewed August 29, 2012 Very professional, efficient, friendly. It was a pleasure to deal with you. Thank you, Rob, Allie (hope the spelling is right), the "new balance" guy (sorry - I do not know your name) and the rest of the crew. You are just great! Rob knows the business - he found sharks quickly. Two other boats joined us in approximately an hour, I guess, because we were in the best location. And the cage had the up-side cover, otherwise I [...]

The electric great white shark

The Great white shark is one of the world's largest predator and one of the ways that makes the great white shark to be effective hunters are their electromagnetic sensors located throughout the body. In addition to their sight and smell, Great whites, like all other sharks, have an extra sense given by the Ampullae of Lorenzini, which enables them to detect the electromagnetic field emitted by the movement of living animals. Every time a living creature moves it generates an electrical field and great whites are so sensitive they can detect half a billionth of a volt. This is [...]

Back at Seal Island

  Dawn breaks over Seal Island False Bay The first day back at sea after a number of days of foul weather always makes me at bit nervous. Will the sharks still be there? But then, there is nothing like the anticipation and cautious optimism that builds as we meet and greet our excited guests and brief them on the "Do's and Don't" of the trip. Yesterday we were back at Seal Island after a stretch of wild Cape Town weather and I was excited and anxious to see what the shark activity would be like. The morning [...]
