One of the largest breeding grounds of the Great White Shark is on the South African coast, a two-hour drive east of Cape Town in a small fishing village called Gansbaii. Here you’ll find an abundance of shark cage dive operators who will take you out on a boat, suit you up to face the icy Atlantic waters, put you in a cage and attempt to lure the big ones to you. As aficionados of these magnificent predators we went for it, bringing along our Go-Pro Hero Cam for video and a Canon 960IS in an underwater housing. We were ready.
Once submerged we were greatly disappointed to only see murky shadows passing by. The turbidity made it impossible to get a clear shot. However what didn’t happen underwater did on deck where we got plenty of action shots from above.

In contrast shark cage diving on the North Shore of Oahu in Hawaii has excellent shark viewing opportunities. We have gone 7 times and each time the crystal clear waters allowed us to capture clear video and photos of Galapagos,Tiger, Sandbar, and one time even a Great White. Most of the time there are anywhere from 20 to 30 sharks. Follow this link to a video shot with Canon 960IS in Hawaii. Here on Vimeo www.vimeo.com/eyejourney.com
