Shark Diving or Watching



Pickup and scenic transfer we collect you from Hermanus and drive you to our home base in Kleinbaai.



White Shark Projects is working in the unique marine area off the southern Cape coast, our skippers log more contact with Great White Sharks than anyone else worldwide.


Our boat is an 11 metre, 4 ton catamaran with all the latest electronic and safety equipment. The boat was custom built for shark diving so there is plenty of space for everyone to view the sharks in comfort. While she can take 30 passengers, we have limited our licence to a maximum of 20 passengers plus crew to ensure client comfort.


White Shark projects has set a bench mark for responsible tourism in the industry. This involves sharing the countri's natural and cultural riches, whilst contributing positively to the preservation and growth of the local communtiy and environment.


We are actively involved with the research projects of the South African Shark Conservancy. White Shark Projects has implemented a dorsal fin tracking program whereby individual pictures of the 3 dorsal fins of Great Whites are taken and fed into a database. This will aid in identifying the population dynamics of the Great White Sharks in the Gaansbaai area. 


White Shark projects works in partnership with the Great White Shark Protection Foundation of South Africa and is a registred member of the South African Tourism Services Association (SATSA), Fair Trade in Tourism and many more.


The White Shark Projects diving and viewing centre offers day trips, team-building activities, incentives, VIP trips and group bookings.


The best season for viewing Dyer Island is a good place to see sharks all year round. So, weather permitting, our tours run every single day. The prime viewing time is in our winter mounths when the sharks have a particularly active feeding pattern.


The following guide is based on our observations over the past 8 years. Allow for an overlap between seasons.

Peak season: April to October (99% success rate) highly recommended

High season: November to December (90-99% success rate)

Intermediate season: January to March (80-90% success rate)
