SHARK SAFARI (AM) - SIMONSTOWN
(May - Sep only) - SCHEDULED HALF DAY
Tour Code: FH07
√ Travel through many famous suburbs of the Cape with their dramatic coastline.
√ Search for the ocean's elusive super-predator - the great white shark (weather permitting)!
√ Potential sightings of Great White sharks 'breaching'.
Depart the city before daybreak for Simonstown harbour where you will board a boat (weather permitting) in search of the ocean's elusive super-predator - the Great White Shark. You will be in the capable hands of international shark experts and experienced marine biologists who interpret the wildlife spectacle as it unfolds.
These operators have studied Great Whites since 1989 and have produced many acclaimed wildlife documentaries showcasing the incredibly rare behaviour of breaching (launching themselves out of the water) in pursuit of prey - most commonly Cape Fur Seals.
Our search for Great Whites will take us past one of their favourite haunts, Seal Island - home to some 60,000 seals and a host of sea birds. This Shark Safari focuses mainly on interaction with the sharks from the boat - with a view to observing natural predatory behaviour through the use of a seal decoy. (Cage diving is included and optional).
Snacks and soft drinks are served on board. Return to port at approximately 13:00pm.
