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

  • 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.

Cancellation Policy

Book Now

We recommend booking well in advance for the shark cage diving experience due to demand. If there are no shows and cancellation within 7 days of departure there will be a 100% cancellation fee.

In the event of illness, hospitalisation, accident or death (with the necessary proof and discretion of management) a full refund will be considered.

Clients are not entitled to a refund should weather conditions suddenly change while out at sea causing a trip to be curtailed.

Sharks are wild animals and their presence cannot be guaranteed. In the event that there is no shark activity while on a shark cage diving tour with Marine Dynamics, then a 25% refund will be granted. We can guarantee a marine biologist on board who will educate you on our favourite apex predator. Remember that YOUR CHOICE MAKES A DIFFERENCE and you can be assured that by booking with us you are assisting in the research and conservation of the great white shark. Should sea and weather conditions unexpectedly change while at sea, it may affect your time to dive in the cage. However, if a shark has been sighted from the boat, we will consider that a successful trip. Be assured that this would be unusual as our team does regular weather checks.
