Diving with the White Sharks

If you are brave enough, diving with sharks may not seem such an insane idea!

Though it may seem like a nightmare to stay in water while the white toothy shark approaches you, it is, in fact, a startling experience that will open up the greatness and uniqueness of this intimidating predator.

The dive itself is set at Gansbaai, some 175 km southeast of the Cape Town, and it is heavily promoted in the city. This is truly a lifetime adventure, which is best when the water is warmer and the visibility is clearer, which attracts sharks to this part of the coast.
