Why is Gansbaai the perfect destination for shark viewing?
There are about 50-60 thousand seals living around there. This serves as a meal source for sharks. According, to the WSD, nowhere in the world is there such a compatible food source available.
The diving takes place at the Dyer Island, which takes 15 minutes to get there from the main island. This is the diving site where WSDC drops its anchor and lowers the floating cage, mainly designed for eight people, into the waters below, then preparing for the majestic apex predators to approach.
Did you know? Shark cage diving takes place throughout the year, shark sightings cannot always be guaranteed. However, customers can dive during South Africa’s winter months, which is from June to August. These times the water are slightly warmer and there is an influx of baby seals, which makes for the perfect shark viewing conditions.
