WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Going Great White Shark Diving in South Africa and more specifically a trip on the Slashfin, is a combination of goosebump thrills, education and relaxation on a luxury boat in the company of experienced experts and researchers! They will show you how to distinguish between a male and female shark and how to identify a specific shark by its unique dorsal fin and scars.

The 20 - 25 minute boat trip to where the activity is to take place, is by itself an exhilarating adventure. Named after a legendary 3,3 m male shark with a very distinctive dorsal fin, the Slashfin is a unique, multi-million rand aluminium boat custom designed for speed, stability, safety and space and can comfortably accommodate 40 passengers and the crew at a time.

On any given day, we also usually see at least two or more members of the Marine Big Five - sharks, dolphins, whales, seals and penguins, as well as several bird species.

Here is a brief breakdown of what to expect:

  • Before the trip guests meet at the Great White House in Kleinbaai 

  • You will receive breakfast or lunch and register your wetsuit size

  • Guests receive a pre-trip safety briefing about what to expect during the trip and a biological background on great white sharks

  • We then take a 200m stroll down to the harbour to board Slashfin

  • Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes, with the shallows being a short 10 minute ride (where we anchor depends on where the sharks are)

  • On average, we anchor for 2 hours, but this depends on shark activity, conditions, as well as number of divers

  • Weather permitting, we take a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley

  • Lastly, a debrief in the Great White House and a celebratory beverage to toast the occasion!
