• 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.

Author: Marine Dynamics (Shark Cage Diving Company)
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.

Zama Zama football team is one of Gansbaai’s local teams, that was established as far back as 1997. Gansbaai locals take their football seriously and you can see teams training almost every day with matches scheduled on weekends. Football is a global sport which fills the players with a sense of purpose, keeps them fit and develops team skills. 
Marine Dynamics began the support of Zama Zama in 2010 as some of their dedicated employees play and coach for the team. Marine Dynamics donates towards branded clothing for the team as well as transport costs to away games, referee fees and other incremental costs.  There was much excitement when the new clothing arrived for the upcoming season and the players gathered to try it on. One of the team managers Khwezi Baleni said, “We are grateful to Marine Dynamics for the ongoing support. The Zama Zama team plays in the SAB League and is in second position in the log.”
