Great White Shark Adventure in Mossel Bay


A Great White Shark adventure awaits you in Mossel Bay with White Shark Africa. You can hop on their custom-made catamaran and sail out to where these gigantic mammals play. A Great White can exceed 6m in length and weigh up to 2,200 kilograms.

The blockbuster movie Jaws directed by the legendary Steven Spielberg has most of us believing that humans are in fact the great white sharks preferred prey. This is not actually true. The shark primarily feeds on marine animals, including fish and seabirds. Even so it is sensible to swim at designated beaches with shark nets.

Great White Sharks enjoy coastal waters with a temperature of between 12 and 24 degrees Celsius. South African waters home some of the densest shark populations and it is therefore home to much research on these creatures. They have also been tagged in South African waters and later spotted in Australia then again in South Africa within the same year. That’s a mileage of 20, 000 kilometres! These mighty fellows get around more than we realize and interaction between shark populations is definite.

With White Shark Africa you will be in safe experienced hands whether you opt to dive or enjoy observing the sharks up close from the boat. This is an unbelievable experience. With a long weekend coming up Mossel Bay looks like a good place for a Great White Shark Adventure!
