The Trip

Great White Shark Hunting & Breaching Trip

The boat leaves before dawn as this is the best time of day to see great white sharks hunt. Watching Great White Sharks Hunting is an amazing experience and attacks could last for minutes with the sharks having a 50% success rate on their attempts, because seals move quicker than great white sharks.

The chase can be very exciting and wild with the shark and seal thrashing around on the surface; the seal tends to pear downwards and this is when the shark launches itself up and attacks. This spectacular sight is a once in a lifetime experience and unforgettable.

After first light the hunting slows down as the sharks are now more visible to the seals. We then use a decoy which is towed behind the boat; this usually also promises some action.

After this exhilarating experience we will visit Seal Island to see the colony of 40, 000 – 60, 000 Cape Fur Seals. Here we will drop the anchor and chum the water; the chum attracts the sharks to the cage to make viewing them easier. After the cage is lowered into the water your cage diving experience will start. This unforgettable experience will end with the cage diving experience.
