Gansbaai Shark Diving

Duration:

Personal highlights

  1. Sharks: protected from extinction in South Africa since 1991
  2. Diving: getting into an open steel cage, swimming right next to a small boat
  3. Seasick: I did not take any pills and got terribly sick while wearing my wetsuit
  4. Ship: small boat for about 20 passengers and 7 in the cage at the same time
  5. Water: too muddy to see anything, Mocambique seems to be way better
