The Great white shark expedition together with the shark biology course is operated by Apex Shark Expeditions. The expedition is hosted by Professor Alessandro De Maddalena, one of the world’s foremost shark experts, who has worked with Apex Shark Expeditions since 2010. The guests will have the possibility of encountering Great white sharks in their habitat and learn about biology, ethology and ecology of these predators. There will also be excellent chances to observe other species of sharks including Blue, Shortfin Mako, Bronze Whaler and the Broadnose Sevengill shark.
Based on the best activity at the time of the expedition we may position ourselves at one or more of the famous Great white shark locations in South Africa. The locations can include False Bay departing from Simon’s Town, Mossel Bay, Robberg Peninsula in Plettenberg Bay and Bird Island off Port Elizabeth. Also known as the Garden Route, this area provides a coastline of mountains close to the shoreline dotted with beaches and bays, and vividly coloured wild flowers to delight the eye. Such beauty is worth seeing.
