Going Great White Shark Diving in South Africa is a combination of goosebump thrills, education and relaxation on a luxury boat in the company of experienced experts and researchers! They will show you how to distinguish between a male and female shark and how to identify a specific shark by its unique dorsal fin and scars. The 20 - 25 minute boat trip to where the activity is to take place, is by itself an exhilarating adventure. The boat is custom designed for speed, stability, safety and space and can comfortably accommodate 40 passengers and the crew at a time. On any given day, we also usually see at least two or more members of the Marine Big Five - sharks, dolphins, whales, seals and penguins, as well as several bird species.
Here is a brief breakdown of what to expect: • Before the trip guests meet at the Great White House in Kleinbaai • You will receive breakfast or lunch and register your wetsuit size
Guests receive a pre-trip safety briefing about what to expect during the trip
We then take a 200m stroll down to the harbour to board the boat
• Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes, with the shallows a short 10 minute ride. • On average, we anchor for 2 hours, depending on shark activity, conditions and number of divers. • Weather permitting, we take a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley • Lastly, a debrief in the Great White House with soup and bread to warm you up.
