The Shark Boat
``The Great White``
The 12.5 Meter long boat, The Great White, was custom built in Gansbaai. At 4 Meters wide, The Great White is one of the most stable boats in our industry, helping to radically reduce sea sickness. Its also extremely comfortable, with spacious viewing space, and an on-board toilet. The boat can take up to 32 passengers and 5 crew members, but we seldom take more than 24 passengers. The highly qualified crew is made up of our Level 3 Medic/Skipper, the dive master, videographer, bait handler and deckhand. They are all well trained to see to any and all emergency situations in a skilled manner.
The boat, cage and fittings on the boat comply strictly with the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA). They are regularly inspected by SAMSA and go through thorough quality checks and maintenance every month.
The safety equipment on the boat consists of a cell phone, radio phone, first aid medical kits, fire extinguishers, life jackets and a life boat that can carry 65 passengers.
The boat offers a great all round comfortable experience, helping make your shark cage dive in Gansbaai a truly memorable one.
