The great white shark, Carcharodon carharias,is found worldwide and is a very large, fast-swimming predatory fish mostly of cool, coastal waters. It has been known since ancient times as a maneater.The great white is of the mackerel shark family, the Lamnidae. There are four other species in this family, two mako and two porbeagle sharks. Only one of these, the shortfin mako, is common off South Africa. More attacks by great whites have been reported than any other shark. Great whites are dangerous to human in the water. In South Africa, protection for the great white was a world first,due, in large part, to the Shark Research Centre, Cape Town.
Observing and diving with the Great White Shark is a wonderful experience and will engender an appreciation and respect for this unique animal.



Gansbaai Shark Diving



Looking for an adrenaline rush? Try shark cage diving at Gansbaai, it's probably the greatest thrill that you will ever experience.

The Gansbaai Beach House is situated near the area known as "the shark diving capital of the world", the name given to the stretch of sea between Dyer Island and the main land. Sharks tend to move around a bit, but Winter is definitely the best time to visit. Patience is vital though, as with all things in nature, but the reward is well worth the wait. The chances of seeing a great white shark are higher here than anywhere else. These creatures do not adapt well to captivity so this is an excellent opportunity to see one up close and personal.

Just imagine staring into the dead eyes of the cold-blooded killer of the deep, the Great White Shark.Think you can handle it?
