Gansbaai

South Africa

So you want an eyeball to eyeball encounter with a great white shark in South Africa? Welcome to the Great White capital.

Gansbaai is one of the best places in the world to see (and dive with) the great white sharks in their natural habitat. Dyer Island, with its abundant marine life and rare pelagic bird species, is home to thousands of seals and a constant food source for the sharks. Cage dives take place in the infamous Shark Alley, a narrow strip of sea between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock.

Being only two hours by road from Cape Town, it’s possible to do this as a day-trip although we do recommend spending at least one night in Kleinbaai/Gansbaai to give yourself the chance to enjoy more than just one cage dive, increasing your shark-spotting opportunity.
