WSDC are expert tour operators and conservationists: The company has been operating in the area for over 22 years, is committed to conservation and the protection of great white sharks and is a founding member of the Great White Protection Foundation.
MOST THRILLING EXPERIENCES OF YOUR LIFE
Whether you are an adventure enthusiast or a nature lover, sighting a shark in its natural habitat is an exciting experience. The sharks are common in the area thanks to the presence of seals on nearby Dyer Island. “Nowhere in the world is there a comparable natural food source available for the great white sharks,” says Nik Walsh, managing director of WSDC, which operates from Gansbaai. The coastal town is just two hours away from Cape Town, so accessible to many locals (they can pick you up from the city).
Dives take place from a 12-metre custom-designed, sea cabin cruiser catamaran built to industry specs for the safety of the passengers. For over five years, WSDC has received the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence; it offers an exclusive and personalised service.
The dive site is roughly a 15-minute boat ride from the mainland. There the boat drops anchor lowers its floating cage into the big blue below, where it waits for the captivating apex predators to approach.
