Guests of Dyer Island Cruises and Marine Dynamics were in for a treat on the 7th July – a great white shark predation attempt on a Cape fur seal. The predation attempt was so close to our vessel Whale Whisperer that guests on board were splashed by all the activity. This time the seal’s stealth and speed won the day and he escaped this legendary predator.

Have a look at an infographic and post written by former Dyer Island Conservation Trust researcher, Michelle Jewel. It explains how Cape Fur seals use refuge to avoid white sharks at Geyser Rock, South Africa.
