ON THE DAY:
White Shark Projects is based in Kleinbaai, and is known as the Mecca of the Great White Shark.
Kleinbaai is a scenic, 2-hour drive from Cape Town, but as most of our clients are International tourists, we offer a shuttle service, transferring clients from their hotels in Cape Town and back again. Yes, it is a very early start to the day, but as soon as clients spot their first Great White, they know that it was all worth it.
Our launching times vary from day to day, as it is completely dependent on the tides, the weather and the sea-conditions. Therefore, we can only confirm the exact launching times by 16h00 the day before the scheduled tour.
Once clients arrive at our lodge in Kleinbaai, we welcome them with a warm smile, a hot cup of coffee and a nutritious continental breakfast, which consists of a seasonal fruit salad, muffins, eggs, cereals, yoghurts and a selection of breads. Whilst clients enjoy their breakfast, we ensure that everybody is ready and do our best to answer all their questions to help settle some nerves.
Our skipper gives a detailed safety briefing, and explains what clients can expect when we get out to sea. From the lodge we take a gentle 100m walk down to the harbour where we board our vessel, SHARK TEAM.
A typical tour can last between 3-4 hours
