Diving the Whale Coast of South Africa
The Whale Coast is a scenic stretch of coast around Walker Bay in the Atlantic Ocean. It is dotted with picturesque villages that have become famous for shark diving and whale watching.
Once a sleepy fishing village, now booming since becoming the country's premier base for shark cage diving to see the Great White Shark at Dyer Island and Geyser Rock. Just outside Gansbaai we find the village of Kleinbaai, this village offers easy access to Dyer Island
Only 20 Min by boat from Gansbaai/Kleinbaai we find Dyer Island and Geyser Rock
- Premier destinations for shark cage diving
- The Perfect Spot: During winter, the warm Agulhas Current sweeps down from the Indian Ocean, meeting the cold Benguela Current, creating a temperate zone just off the South African coast - providing ideal conditions for the Great White Shark in particular.
The capital of the Whale Coast is situated only one-and-a-half hours from Cape Town and offers one of the best places for land-based whale watching in the world
