• Shark cage diving in Gansbaai, South Africa with Marine Dynamics. Experience the exceptional and come face to face with a great white shark! 

  • The exact world record white shark is a contested issue, but chances are it is between 6-7m. In Gansbaai, the largest white shark ever caught was at Danger Point and measured up to 5.9m.

  • If you see a white shark in the water don’t panic. Chances are high that the shark has already detected you and isn’t interested. White shark attacks are normally associated with poor visibility, so avoid murky conditions.

  • White sharks have a unique system called a “counter current heat exchange”, which keeps their body  tempreture +/- 7C above the surrounding water temperature. 

  • All sharks have an incredibly unique system on the tip of their nose called the “ampillae of Lorenzini”. These are small pores filled with a gel that transmits the electrical currents in the water to the shark’s brain so that it can assess its environment.

  • White sharks give birth to live young (not eggs), and they give birth to 6-8 pups at one time. Pups are usually between 1.0-1.5m in length and are born with teeth.

  • Body language has been a well documented form of shark communication and has identified body arching, jaw gaping, and other postures as specific social tactics.

Another beautiful day with Marine Dynamics. We launched today in a bit overcast conditions but as soon as we reached the Shallows it started to clear up. We had to wait a little bit for our first sharks to arrive and our first cage got some beautiful copper sharks. Just as the second cage got in the shark activity picked up quite a bit and we finally got ourselves a white shark. It was Shaun slowly cruising around us. He stayed with us till the end of the trip and we made sure that everyone got their chance with a white shark in the water. Shaun was very active giving us some nice and close passes, giving us an incredible trip.
