The Shark Boat

The “1st Strike” shark viewing boat was built in Mossel Bay and designed for shark diving with comfort. She is a spacious 12 meter long Catamaran with an outside shower, on-board toilet and a separate change room. She is driven by two powerful 300hp low emersion 4 stroke Suzuki motors and can power 20 passengers and 4 crew to their destination with ease. The boat carries a complete set of safety equipment, including two 12 man life rafts, and the vessel is surveyed by S.A.M.S.A (South African Maritime Safety Association) every year. There are also level three trained medical personnel on board at all times while out at sea.

The boat is surveyed annually by the South African Maritime Safety Association, to maintain safety standards and the equipment includes VHF 29 mhz radio, GPS, life jackets, depth and fish finder,  life raft etc.

A fun and informative safety briefing is given before the departure of every Mossel Bay shark diving trip.
