A very exciting Cape Country Routes offering is Marine Dynamics – an award winning shark cage diving and viewing company based in Kleinbaai, a small harbour town, part of Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa, which specialises in Great White Shark diving excursions.
This is the world’s most accessible population of Great White Sharks and the best place in the world to see, and dive with these iconic creatures in their natural environment. The bronze whaler (Copper) shark is also a frequent visitor. Marine Dynamics’ sister company Dyer Island Cruises is a boat-based Eco-Marine Tourism Company which affords visitors an unforgettable experience to see the Marine Big Five – whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and sharks, as well as many species of pelagic birds.
Both companies are Fair Trade Tourism certified and make a difference through marine research, conservation and education projects. Every trip has a marine biologist on hand to inform you about the trends, traits and troubles of the endangered Great White Shark and other amazing marine species, as well as the Dyer Island ecosystem; and every trip on either a shark cage diving or a whale watching boat is an awesome adventure and an exciting crash course in marine biology. Don’t miss a visit to the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary, a significant project.
