Shark cage diving in South Africa is world renowned. There is still much mystery that surrounds the Great White Shark. We do not know many things about them such as where they breed or where many of them give birth. The Great White Shark is nomadic so It is imperative that we take data on them each time we see them from our boat. We share our findings with other conservation organisations to try and establish numbers, growth rates, returning individuals and much more.
When our white sharks leave our bay we often experience wonderful viewing of the Bronze Whaler Shark. This animal grows up to 3 Meters in length and congregate In herds. Sometimes there can be up to 25 different individuals around the boat at the same time. We do our best to identify individuals above and below the water whilst taking data of their size and sex.
