First Great White Shark spotted in Gansbaai since lockdown

Shark cage diving and conservation research company Marine Dynamics spotted their first Great White shark off the coast of Gansbaai since lockdown was lifted.

The company, which had started up its shark cage diving and whale watching expeditions had only been seeing Bronze Whalers with the last Great White only seen in March.

This sighting was very exciting with the 4.5m female shark coming close to the cage, giving those diving a great thrill.

Great White Sharks have been pretty elusive for the last few years, with many all but disappearing for a while from the Cape’s bays before slowly returning.

Marine Dynamics use their trips out every day to monitor, identify, and collect data on the shark population in the area. This is then used to understand more about shark activity and inform conservation projects around these beautiful animals.
