Shark Cage Diving
Seal Island , False Bay is the best place in the world to witness natural predation of the Great White Sharks on Cape Fur Seals. Great White Sharks do breach at other shark spots around the world but what makes False Bay so special is that the intensity and frequency of this behaviour can be seen there more often than any other shark spot in the world. The water visibility around Seal Island is only around 5-8 metres on average so the seals have very little time to see the sharks when an attack happens. Seals are mammals and need to come to the surface to breath and that’s when the Great White Sharks looks to strike.
There are over 400 species of sharks but the Great White Shark is the most feared of them all. Yet, we are drawn to it; it is the one everybody knows. It is mysterious and hard to find; even though it occurs in many oceans the areas that you can realistically find it is rare, and even at those hotspots sightings are not guaranteed.
