Marine Dynamics Tours proudly hosted the Minister of Tourism, Derek Hanekom, on our shark cage diving boat Slashfin. The Minister’s reaction upon seeing the sharks: “Seeing these great white sharks, seeing them underwater and nearby is something quite unique and I would strongly recommend that everyone should do it sometime in their lifetime”. The water was a warm 19,7 degrees and five great white sharks were seen.

Thank you.”
