Another late start to the morning due to the tide, saw us launching at 10:30 again.

Today we had a strong Easterly wind, which causes a choppy ride to the anchor spot at Jounerts se dam. When we get to the anchor spot we are sheltered by the land, this gives us a somewhat breezy albeit it calm conditions. 

We were greeted almost immediately by 5 Bronze Whalers/Copper Sharks and 1 small Great White shark of about 3m.

Today has been a spectacular day shark and weather-wise for Great White Shark Tours. 

The trip started at 10:30 due to a low tide issue, which prevents our boat from launching due to the lack of water. The weather was just perfect, sunny day and no wind to talk of. The visibility was a bit better than our previous trip with about 2m of visibility. 

We headed out to our normal spot at Jouberts se dam after our safety briefing. We dropped anchor and were not disappointed by both the Great White and Copper Sharks, which arrived in the first 15 minutes.

Welcome to Great White Shark Tours first blog post. Today we launched at 10 am with a fresh southerly wind with a slight swell, other than that it's been a beautiful day so far. 

Today also we are privileged to have Mr South Africa 2019 Heinrich Gabler and Mr South Africa 2017 Brendt Wayne joining us on our tour. 

Along with the 32 other passengers, we left Kleinbaai Harbour. The trip to the dive spot known as Joubert se dam takes approximately 10 minutes. 

We dropped the anchor and cage and started the chumming process, this is a mixture of fish products. After our briefing ended we were greeted with 5 Bronze Whaler sharks, otherwise known as Copper Sharks, which put on a spectacular show for us. These guys are up and down the cage constantly from start to finish. 

 Shark Myth

Recent media reports highlighting the absence of great white sharks in False Bay has resulted in much confusion for shark cage diving tourists to South Africa and the tourism industry at large. Gansbaai is 2 hours from Cape Town and is referred to as the White Shark Capital of the World

Great White Shark Tours had been enjoying incredible white shark sightings in Gansbaai over the past few months. The shark industry had a couple of tough years with the white sharks shifting their territory in 2017 and 2018 but the 2019 great white sightings can be compared to the excellent 2016 white shark activity.

This magnificent great white shark was born with several evolutionary advantages.

There are so many reasons why great white sharks should be considered as considered nature's ocean-dwelling superheroes- they are strong and big, they live long lives, live long lives can heal their wounds amazingly quickly and they most possible can provide a cure for cancer.

But just how can it be possible for this ancient predator to have so many superhero traits? But how is it possible that these ancient giants have so many superhero-like traits?
