This is an amazing opportunity to get up close and personal with Great White Sharks in their natural environment, both from a boat and from a cage in the water !!
Kleinbaai / Gansbaai is the best place in the world to see Great Whites, and you’ll work hand in hand with marine biologists as they research these fascinating creatures, their behaviour and environment. You’ll share your newfound knowledge with visitors on shark cage diving cruises and, as part of the team you’ll have the chance to cage dive numerous times for an unforgettable face to face with these incredible predators.
This program is hosted by a professional marine ecotourism organisation which gives day-visitors an unforgettable experience as they go out and see sharks, whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and many species of birds that live close to the shore. They are also deeply involved in research and conservation and provide volunteers with an unforgettable experience of Africa.
This exciting and varied program will suit those studying Animal Sciences, Biology or Zoology or anyone who loves the ocean and its wildlife. You’ll become an expert on shark behaviour and biology, identification of sharks, how to photograph marine wildlife, ocean conservation at the tip of Africa and so much more. 2 weeks is great, but for the ultimate experience stay for 3 or 4 !
