White Shark Africa 

Great White Sharks have always fascinated humans for various reasons. Perhaps it is their imposing size, their graceful beauty:- perfectly adapted to their environment, patrolling our oceans since the beginning of time… Their powerful predatory behaviour instilling pure fear in our hearts… or perhaps it is the mysteries surrounding this spectacular shark that beckons us to come closer and closer…..

If you are one of those….. who would like to come just that little bit closer, to experience the Great White Shark in its natural environment above or under water or perhaps just learn a bit more about them and us. You have come to the right place.

Mossel Bay Deep Sea Adventures 

Deep Sea Adventures in Mossel Bay are the proud owners of fishing charter vessels Nikita, Dankie Pa and Dreamcatcher. They offer  deep sea fishing opportunities on the Mossel Bay coastline. During the past 13 years, Deep Sea Adventures made the dreams of several fisher men come true. The opportunity to have a 10kg+ Kablejou on your line will give any amateur fisherman goose bumps of excitement – that’s for sure. Not to talk about the bite on your hook and the fight with a Yellowbelly Rockord or a good sized Sunter. It is not only the thrill of the larger fish species that makes fishermen excited but also the chance to catch several species on one trip.

Swimming & Diving at Die Poort 

The Point a dramatic rocky point which is at the tip of the peninsula within central Mossel Bay. Rows of rocky reefs form a natural tidal pool known as Die Poort. For generations, the towns children have learned to swim in this pool where chains and ropes have been secured across the pool to assist swimmers when the surging tides cause strong currents to wash down the pool. At the upper end of the pool there is a diving board over a deep pool with high rocks on the seaward side. This is Blougat (Blue Hole), a very deep pool, much deeper pool than the first, giving it a deep blue colour and thus its name. Here you can stroll for 3 kilometres along a walkway across the rocky coastline or venture on the 15-kilometre-long St Blaize hiking trail to Dana Bay. 

The Oystercatcher Trail 

Luxury, guided walking tours along the beaches and in the fynbos west of Mossel Bay. Explore a part of the Garden Route where modern human behaviour first emerged. You’ll come away with a new appreciation for our planet…and for what it means to be human.
