South Africa, a glorious country that has so many incredible things to offer visitors, including the experience of what is, arguably, the best shark cave diving in the world. If adrenaline is your thing and the prospect of being under water in a cage doesn’t scare you, consider this :
Great white sharks can detect as little as a single drop of blood in 25 gallons (100 liters) of water and can sense blood in the water up to 3 miles / 5 km away. You’re in a cage. Relax.
Great Whites are the largest predatory fish on Earth and weight 5000 lbs (2,268 kg) or more. According to scientific research, attacks by Great Whites are often not fatal as they are naturally curious and will “sample” their victims before release them. In other words, humans are not on the Great White Shark Menu. So off you go. Into the water with you.
Highly adapted predators, their mouths are lined with up to 300 serrated, triangular teeth arranged in several rows, and they have an exceptional sense of smell to detect prey. They even have organs that can sense the tiny electromagnetic fields generated by animals. Their main prey items include sea lions, seals, small toothed whales, and even sea turtles, and carrion.
