Shark cage diving is best experienced with scuba

Shark Cage Diving. African Shark Eco-Charters What makes shark cage diving with African Shark Eco-Charters different? Well, lots of things, but the actual shark cage diving on our boat, the Blue Pointer, is what sets us firmly apart. In the past few weeks I cannot help but notice how many guests have mentioned to me while out on a trip how awesome it is that we offer our shark cage diving with scuba regulators on our trips.  Guests keep revealing to me, especially after they dive, how they can’t imagine as incredible of an adventure if you have [...]

Ali’s in love with the great white sharks of False Bay

Great White Fascination Leaving Simons Town harbour on the way shark cage diving. Seal Island False Bay My first season with African Shark Eco Charters has been a whirlwind of dramatic hunting sequences, teeth, claws, flying sharks, chewed decoys and excited tourists.  The 2012 great white shark season has been action packed and I have loved and appreciated every moment of it. Last week on the Blue Pointer 2 a guest told me she was surprised to find that the crew members were as thrilled as the tourists were about seeing great white sharks.  She couldn’t believe we [...]

“Simply Brilliant!”

[pullquote] so glad I did it with African Shark Eco-Charters, will recommend them to anyone who decides to do this! [/pullquote] Very professional while being friendly and felt like a family. It was a pleasure to do the trip with you! Thank you, Rob, Allie and Naomi! Booked a few months before I came out to SA and was very easy and was kept updated to confirm that the trip was on. The trip itself was excellent, saw loads of sharks, had a great dive in the cage, got loads of photos and got humpbacks and dolphins into the price. Cage [...]

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![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 [...]

“One of a Kind”

“One of a Kind”[pullquote]an amazing experience[/pullquote] Reviewed May 31, 2012 This was an amazing experience. It was not only the sharks that made the trip extraordinary but the excitement of the crew that made this a 'one of a kind' experience. The expertise of captain Rob as well as the crews' passion to give the customer the best time possible makes this charter unbeatable. It would be a shame to use anyone else for a shark dive.

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. There is even something called irruptive migrations within certain species, which are migrations that [...]
