Sharks of the Cape of Storms

A trip to experience the sharks of the Cape of Storms with Michael Scholl – a shark expert. The Great White Shark comes out of the blue ocean to patrol Seal Island in False Bay to feed that magestic machine of a body, certainly the most impressive of the sharks. Get to know White Sharks up close and personal around Dyer Island and Shark Alley close to Gansbaai. Dive in the open ocean off the Cape of Good Hope in search of the pelagic sharks and later experience the kelp forests to see primitive seven-gill sharks. A Taste of Travel has teamed up with BlueXplorer to offer this packed itinerary for those with a keen interest in sharks in the Cape region of South Africa, see and explore the world of sharks, their environment and ecology, and their role as the apex marine predator in the sea. See these sharks in a way that you could never do in documentaries.
