Great White Shark Project


Cloaked in myth, misunderstanding and fear, this awesome animal remains a mystery to man. It is known however that sharks are intelligent and vulnerable, deserving sympathy and respect. Education helps people to lose the “Jaws” phenomenon and to gain the realisation that sharks are a complex and precious species, living in the water – doing their best to survive.

The dedicated Shark Project is a Responsible Tourism operation that sets the benchmark in its commitment to community development and upliftment. The project is deeply involved in the social, economic and environmental needs of its surrounding communities.
