Shark Adventures & More: Gansbaai

Dive Gansbaai, South Africa and come face to face with sharks twice the size of grown men. You don't have to be a certified diver to have an incredible adventure. It's not unusual to see 4 meter great whites as they feed on the area's large seal population. You'll spend most of the day in the passageway between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, known throughout the world as Shark Alley. It was around here that a 6.2 meter shark was accidentally caught in a trawling net.
