Description

Every year between 25 000 - 30 000 tourists visit Gansbaai or more specifically Dyer Island (only 20 min. by boat from Kleinbaai) to encounter the Great White shark. The reason why so many sharks patrol the waters around the island is because of the 50 000 strong Cape fur seal colony on the nearby Geyser rock - seals are after all the white shark's main food source. Shark-viewing can be done from a boat (because white sharks feed at the surface). However, the ultimate experience undoubtedly is to come eye to eye with these awesome animals by submerging in a steel cage.
