SHARK SAFARI – HALF DAY
Tour Code: FH07
Depart before daybreak for Simonstown harbour for a boat trip in search of the super predator of the oceans, the Great White Shark with international shark experts, Chris and Monique Fallows. (Subject to Availability)
The Fallows have studied Great Whites since 1989 and were the first to film the now famous Great Whites of False Bay in the rare (and until-then, relatively-unseen) act of “breaching” (launching themselves out of the water) in their pursuit of Cape Fur Seals they hunt in this area.
Our search for Great Whites includes one of their typical haunts, Seal Island, home to some 60 000 seals as well as a host of other sea bird species. The main focus of the Safari is on natural interaction with the sharks from the boat, observing natural predatory behaviour, with a tow using a fake cut-out carpet “seal” decoy employed to encourage the sharks to “breach.”
Light lunch, snacks and soft drinks are served on board. Return to the city around noon.
Inclusions: Private Return Transfers and Scheduled Shark Safari from Simonstown, Light Lunch, Bottled Water.
