White Shark Africa - Shark Cage Diving, Mossel Bay, Garden Route, Western Cape, South Africa
Welcome to White Shark Africa in Mossel Bay on the Garden Route. Great White Sharks have always fascinated humans for various reasons. Perhaps it is their imposing size, their graceful beauty:- perfectly adapted to their environment, patrolling our oceans since the beginning of time… Their powerful predatory behaviour instilling pure fear in our hearts… or perhaps it is the mysteries surrounding this spectacular shark that beckons us to come closer and closer…..
If you are one of those….. who would like to come just that little bit closer, to experience the Great White Shark in its natural environment above or under water or perhaps just learn a bit more about them and us. You have come to the right place!

We meet at our office at the commercial slip next door to the yacht club. We like out clients to be there an hour before launch time so you can relax, have some breakfast, chat to our staff and listen to the safety and boat trip briefing.
The trip from the dock to the shark site is only about ten minutes so there is no long and tedious boat ride. In fact, Mossel Bay has the most accessible white sharks in the world. The bay is also very protected so our sea conditions are normally very calm and comfortable. The crew will provide a briefing concerning the cage diving on the boat.
To find the sharks we have to bait and chum. The baits and chum are natural marine products. We do not use anything that is not natural to the sharks and the environment. It can take several minutes or several hours for the first shark to appear and while we enjoy a high success rate, you need to understand that nothing is guaranteed.
Once we have sharks at the boat, the cage will go into the water and the diving will begin. Topside viewing is exciting for the non-diver and as the shark works very close to the surface you will have plenty of opportunity to take some action shots.
This is not a jaws movie set so we do our best not to have the sharks banging into the boat and cage as this injures them and produces a false impression.
A trip generally lasts for +- four hours and we offer a light lunch, snacks and drinks on the boat and there is plenty of opportunity to chat to our staff and ask questions. Upon return to the dock, we offer afternoon tea and hand out the certificate of the day to all our guests.
