It is the most feared creature on the planet, beautifully streamlined to slip through the ocean with the minimum of effort.

On arrival at Gaansbai’s picturesque Klienbaai Harbour you will be given wet suits and equipment before heading off to board your custom built 36 ft, 4 tonne white shark dive catamaran - ‘Shark Team’. You then meet your intrepid skipper, a qualified paramedic, a Dive Master and his friendly crew and enjoy a short talk on shark anatomy and behaviour. You will be explained on how White Shark Projects works with the sharks in the area and how you will spend the next couple of hours diving and viewing these wondrous predators in their natural habitat. You are fully briefed on all procedures and the action begins as the crew ‘chums’ the cruise area and you wait with bated breath for your initial glimpse of the first shark fin. Sharks are usually wary at first and we wait a while for them to settle and then lower the dive cage. You will then enter the cage (takes 4 - 5 people) and spend about 20 minutes face to face with the sharks !
While waiting for your turn you can also enjoy topside viewing as shark activity is often close to the surface. In fact Great Whites are also known for their ‘spy hopping’ – breaching right out of the water in pursuit of prey.
