White Shark Ecoventures was established in 1992, and offers daily shark diving/sighting tours off Gansbaai.
Gansbaai is a mere stone-throw away from the most southern tip of the African continent and is situated 160 km from Cape Town (2 hrs drive). Approximately 12 km offshore from Gansbaai we find two islands situated next to each other.
The unique channel (6 m deep) between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock has earned international fame and recognition as one of the most successful areas in the world, to view the great white in it's natural environment.
This area is rich in sea life and has an abundance of other wildlife species such as Cape fur seals, Cape Genets, Cape Cormorants, Jackass Penguins, Whales and Dolphins.
The day starts with a door to door shuttle service collection in Cape Town
at 06:00. Upon arrival in Gansbaai, breakfast is served in a restaurant, followed by a briefing on the program for the day. The boat departs from the harbour at approximately 08:30 to arrive in the channel 30 minutes later.
Once the sharks are in the area, divers may enter the two man steel cage from the dive platform (situated on the stern of the boat) and get ready for the action.
Lunch, drinks and snacks are served on board throughout the day, and all diving equipment is supplied.
Return time to shore is approximately 16:00 and arrival back in Cape Town at 18:00.
The boat is a luxurious and power- ful 26 ft deep-sea cabin cruiser, fully licensed to South African Safety standards. With a spacious cabin, private toilet and top fly-bridge for photography, she provides all the comfort for a full day at sea.
