Picture an alley that you wouldn’t want to walk through on a dark night when you’re all alone– Shark Alley is the ocean’s equivalent. This sea channel off the south-east Coast of South Africa is not only the ideal hunting ground for sharks, but it is home to the highest concentration of Great White Sharks in the world. This makes it one of the top commercial shark cage-diving destinations imaginable.
Shark Alley can be found just off the coast of the sleepy town of Gansbaai, which is also known as the Great White Shark capital of the world. Dyer Island is home to over 50 000 Cape Fur Seals, and the narrow channel that runs between it and Geyser Rock attracts Great White Sharks in the thousands. The currents and positioning of the rocks, and not to mention the huge volumes of seals, make Shark Alley a glorified all-you-can-eat buffet, and an adrenaline junkie’s dream!
This adventurous attraction is 160km from Cape Town, and a mere 30 minute drive from Hermanus. So whether you’re making a day of it or you’re making your way up the Garden Route, it’s definitely worth a stopover. The rolling hills and crisp ocean air create a dramatic setting to fit this hair-raising activity.
Imagine being face to face with the ocean’s deadliest and most majestic beasts. Boats travel to Shark Alley daily to give divers an experience of a lifetime. No diving experience is required, and it’s also possible to get involved without getting wet. The sharks are known to come so close to the boat that even passengers aboard will be able to get in on the action. Watch has huge sharks launch themselves out of the water as the boats drag decoy seals!
