  • Shark cage diving in Gansbaai, South Africa with Marine Dynamics. Experience the exceptional and come face to face with a great white shark! 

  • The exact world record white shark is a contested issue, but chances are it is between 6-7m. In Gansbaai, the largest white shark ever caught was at Danger Point and measured up to 5.9m.

  • If you see a white shark in the water don’t panic. Chances are high that the shark has already detected you and isn’t interested. White shark attacks are normally associated with poor visibility, so avoid murky conditions.

  • White sharks have a unique system called a “counter current heat exchange”, which keeps their body  tempreture +/- 7C above the surrounding water temperature. 

  • All sharks have an incredibly unique system on the tip of their nose called the “ampillae of Lorenzini”. These are small pores filled with a gel that transmits the electrical currents in the water to the shark’s brain so that it can assess its environment.

  • White sharks give birth to live young (not eggs), and they give birth to 6-8 pups at one time. Pups are usually between 1.0-1.5m in length and are born with teeth.

  • Body language has been a well documented form of shark communication and has identified body arching, jaw gaping, and other postures as specific social tactics.

Location: Gansbaai, South Africa

Dive site: Joubertsdam

Water temp: Moderate

Visibility: Poor

Sightings: Bronze Whaler sharks, Cape Fur seals, Short-tail stingray

Summary: We started our day rather late today which give a chance for our guests to have a bit of a sleep in. Even though it looked rather gloomy in the morning, the weather didn't disappoint, and we even got some winter sunshine. As soon as we got to our anchor spot for the day and prepped the boat, the sharks were ready to play. We had some incredible Bronze whaler sharks sightings. Mostly, we had lady sharks joining us today but we spotted a male amongst them too. We also were fortunate to enjoy two playful Cape Fur seas porpoising around our vessel and even a Short-tail stingray came to say hi! All in all, an amazing day to have out at sea for the guests and the crew, thanks to all who joined us!
