White Shark Projects, located in Gansbaai, is a renowned global research organisation focusing on the conservation and health of our oceans as well as offering the opportunity to encounter sharks up close from the safety of a cage.
Local and international tourists are welcome – divers and non-divers alike – who wish to encounter or view The Great White, Bronze Whaler Shark and other marine life native to the Southern African coast line.
For this once in a life time experience, tourists will be collected from Cape Town and driven to Gansbaai. After a continental breakfast and safety briefing, guides will go through a detailed description of what to expect out at sea.
The trip includes a fully sterilized wetsuit and all diving equipment. All onboard snacks and drinks. Luxury walk-in showers and a light lunch on return to shore, and a Dive Experience Certificate will be awarded to all divers.
A marine biologist will be on every trip as well as a dive master and crew, plus a professional videographer and photographer to record your trip.
Their highly qualified crew are trained to the highest standards set by SAMSA, whose safety policies and training procedures are internationally recognised.
Each trip lasts about three hours and passengers are limited to twenty people on their custom built 36ft catamaran.
Divers will be rotated six at a time and will have approximately twenty to thirty minutes in the cage and you will be given the option to dive twice if you wish. While non divers will be able to observe sharks at close quarters from the viewing platform, take photographs and watch those in the cage.
Due to weather and conditions all tours and tour times are only confirmed the day before your tour.
Passionate about conservation, White Shark Projects have initiated several projects.
Their 21-day challenge is an annual awareness campaign which reaches the community through educational talks, through schools, radio, social media and beach clean ups, encouraging people to make responsible choices for the environment and ocean.
Their Volunteer Program is dedicated to the exploration and conservation of the Southern African shark population and is open to students, eco-tourists, conservation organisations and marine resource users.
Their very successful Recycle Swop Shop caters for the needs of local children and at the same time teaches them the importance of recycling. Children are encouraged to bring recycling material to the shop in exchange for soap, stationery, second hand clothing and basic foods. This project supports thousands of children in our community each year and prevents hundreds of thousands of tons of plastic pollution from blowing into our oceans each year.
White Shark Projects abides by the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism and SATSA, the Southern Africa Tourism Services Association.
