Mossel Bay White Shark Africa
Great White Shark viewing from every angle!
Mossel Bay shark diving is the ultimate experience in South Africa. The new shark diving boat “1st Strike” only takes 20 passengers on board, and a maximum of 5-6 people in the cage, so the experience here is much more personalized.
The shark trips take place in one of Western Cape’s coastal towns called Mossel Bay, and offers the best conditions in South Africa to go shark cage diving with Great White sharks, with better weather, better sea conditions and most importantly, warmer water than the rest of Great White shark territory. Average weather boasts 320 Sunny days per year and the Guinness Book of Records reported Mossel Bay as having ‘the second mildest climate in the world”.
Working around Seal Island (home to thousands of Cape Fur Seals), provides unique opportunities to observe “breaching” and attacks by Great White sharks on Seals… a spectacular sight and an excellent occasion to film and photograph this extraordinary event. The best chance you will have of seeing this take place is from June to September, which is our peak shark time in Mossel Bay with anywhere of up to 17 sharks seen on one trip and an average of 5-7 sharks per trip during our winter months.
The bay also plays host to large numbers of Whales between June – Nov. The Whale numbers often match even those of the famous territory of Gansbaai. While on the subject of Marine mammals… schools of up to 500 Dolphins make a spectacular site and are often seen in the bay. All of this makes shark diving in Mossel Bay, a unique and very sought after experience.
