About Us


The aim of Shark Dive Africa is to give something back to our sharks – from creating awareness and raising funds to attempts to eliminate illegal shark hunting and poaching worldwide. Our trips are designed to give you the opportunity to view the magnificent Great White Shark in its natural habitat in a sustainable manner.

“I developed a love for Great White Sharks when I started surfing at the age of 14, even relocating to Cape Town to live the dream. It became my mission to learn as much as I could about these magnificent and intriguing creatures of the deep, and today I am familiar with and have a deep love for all shark species.

My 3 favourite shark species are the Great White because of the powerful image of fear, danger and mystery; the Tiger Shark because of its nature and curiosity, and the whale shark for its quiet tranquility in the tropical waters (despite its size!)

This knowledge, coupled with my love of the freedom offered by the ocean and surfing encouraged me to establish this business, and I’ve become even more motivated knowing that some of these precious, beautiful unique predators may be on their way to extinction.

To my guests and clients, I trust you will enjoy your shark diving experience with us and take with you some of the love I have for these spectacular creatures.”
