World Ocean Day 2024 with Marine Dynamics and Dyer Island Conservation Trust

On Monday, February 26, 2024, we had another beautiful commemoration early in the morning, with the Marine Dynamics vessels Dream Catcher and Slashfin setting sail to the exact spot where the Birkenhead still lies in her final resting place, to say a little prayer and think about the more than 400 lives lost on that quiet, pitch-black February morning.

Marine Dynamics is a Shark Cage Diving company based in Kleinbaai, a small harbour town, part of Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa. This area is known as a hotspot for the Great White Shark and the best place in the world to see and dive with these iconic creatures in their natural environment.

The Great White House was a festive hub on Tuesday, 5 July, for the first post-Covid Marine Evening. Tourism partners such as guest houses and hotels in the Gansbaai area were invited to join in this festive occasion to also remind them of the five-star service their clients will experience when joining the qualified marine biologists- and guides on the top-class Marine Dynamics and Dyer Island Cruises Whale Watching and Shark Cage Diving vessels.

A pair of Orca (Killer Whales) that have been terrorizing and killing Great White Sharks off the coast of South Africa since 2017 has managed to drive large numbers of the sharks from their natural aggregation site.
