Cage Diving in South Africa
Dive Site: Mosselbaai great white shark cage diving
Location: Mosselbaai, South Africa
Description: Cage diving
Depth: 2 metres (6.5 feet)
Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)
The Mediterranean-style seaside town of Mossel Bay is situated on a sun washed peninsula embraced by the Indian Ocean. The Guinness Book of Records features the town as having the mildest year round climate in the world, second only to Hawaii. Mossel Bay is a very rich area with its abundant sealife of diverse fish, seals, whales, penguins and other sea birds, dolphins, the occasional orcas and of course a plentiful supply of the great white shark.
Mossel Bay has beautiful north facing beaches, good surfing, sailing, windsurfing, hiking trails, dive spots and bungee jumping with an abundance of things to do and see. There is accommodation to suit all pockets, with a variety of restaurants available.
Statistics kept of great white sightings over the last five years help to pick the best possible time of the year being April to July and September to November.
