Shark cage diving operators in Gansbaai

Gansbaai is primarily a fishing village established due to its abundance of fish, but nowadays it’s famous for a slightly less edible fish. The Great White Shark is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating and famous creatures of the big blue. The chance to view these magnificent predators is solely thanks to our pioneering Shark Diving Operators.

Gansbaai was originally founded in 1881 and more than a century later gave origin to the Shark Diving Industry. Founded in the early 1990’s, the industry along with the town has since boomed. Besides putting Gansbaai on the map, it served as the perfect means to make us aware of the vulnerability of this feared animal. 

Shark Diving Operators have since taken it upon themselves to conserve and educate visitors about Great Whites. Being conservation driven, the safety of the client is of top priority, but also the safety of the sharks.

Feared as they may be, The Great White Shark is listed as an endangered species. Hunted down for their jaws, fins, teeth and meat mostly, these fearsome hunters have been reduced to below 5000 worldwide. 

And they have found the perfect way to get everyone involved and interested. Shark Cage Diving is ranked as one of the most outrageous outdoor activities there is. The adrenaline pumping outdoor activity allows you to be in the water with these fascinating creatures and look them in the eye. Most visitors find it strange to hear that these ferocious hunters are actually an endangered species. 

Our uniquely bountiful waters have provided these majestic predators with a refuge here in Gansbaai.  A tenth of the world’s Great White Shark population currently resides in our waters, even though they travel for great distances. We have been able to track a certain mature female that travelled all the way to Australia and back. Still a large group remains in these waters, which is the perfect spot for us to keep an eye on them, for their safety of course.

Individuals from the different companies are personally involved with research projects and associate with the South African White Shark Research Institute. These non-profit programs are dedicated to finding out exactly what make these sharks tick. Tagging projects has allowed for the tracking of these sharks and has led to some amazing discoveries helping us to understand them better.

To ensure the conservation and continued stability of the shark’s environment, the government has put a restriction on the number of cage diving operators that may run in the area. Only a handful of companies may utilize the area and make full use of the situation to educate visitors on all they know. And they have much to teach you as some of the crew members have been involved with shark diving for over a decade.

You could not be in safer or more knowledgeable hands on this amazing adventure. These companies are dedicated and involved; to them it’s not just a job, it’s a life-long passion.
