Shark Encounters is an ethical shark cage diving operator in Gansbaai, South Africa. Gansbaai is known as the White Shark Capital of the World. It certainly is the most accessible white shark population with only a twenty-minute boat trip before you can view this majestic beauty in its natural environment. Our hope is that your encounter will leave you with a deep respect and understanding of the great white shark as an important apex predator.
We work around the unique Dyer Island ecosystem in Gansbaai, South Africa. Dyer Island is an Important Bird Area and the colony of 60 000 Cape Fur seals across the way on Geyser Rock are an important reason that great white sharks visit the area.
*Animal sightings never guaranteed as we are working with wildlife.
