WHITE SHARK CAGE DIVING
In 1990, South Africa was the first country in the world to protect the Great White Shark. Kleinbaai is the home to Great White Shark Cage Diving.
With the 50 000 Cape Fur Seals living on Dyer Island, the Great White sharks have a natural feeding ground. All shark cage diving boats launch from Kleinbaai's natural harbour and give visitors the opportunity to experience the Great White Shark up close and personal.
The excursion takes between 3 – 4 hours. No scuba experience is required. Sighting great white sharks from the boat deck is as good as from the cage if you prefer not to dive. You will also see African Penguins and numerous sea birds on the trip.
The whale seen most in the Walker Bay area is the Southern Right Whale, but other species do make an appearance occasionally. The whales start arriving in May in order to mate and calve in the shallow water. Peak time for whales at any one time is October, but many can still be seen in November, tailing off in December.
Humpbacks migrate through the region between May and December, while Bryde’s whales are found slightly further off shore all year round. Occasional sightings of Killer Whales have been made. Dolphin species which may be seen in the region include the endemic Heavisides dolphin, Bottlenose and Common dolphins.
The Kleinbaai area is generally regarded as one of the best whale-watching sites in the world. Take a boat ride and get a close up view of these giants of the sea, the Southern Right Whale. From the shore or the boat you are almost certain to come across whales frolicking in the bay.

Although the facility was purpose built for rehabilitation of marine birds, it also caters for creating awareness around the perils our marine birds face out in the wild. An Auditorium equipped with a big screen TV, which is linked up to the Rehabilitation area – the Bird Hospital and the Laboratory/Clinic, will enable any guest who visits the facility to see what is being done behind the scenes. This will prevent added stress on the birds in rehabilitation by minimizing the amount of people allowed in the critical areas. The Auditorium also sports one way glass overlooking the final Conditioning pen – where visitors can watch our birds in final preparation for release without any disturbance or interference. Tourism drives our conservation efforts, and the biggest tool we have in conservation is by educating the public around the conservation of these species we work with intensively.
