Description:

Marine Dynamics shark tours is the industry's leading white shark cage...

Marine Dynamics shark tours is the industry's leading white shark cage diving operator - dispelling the myths about sharks one client at a time. Not only can you expect a 5-star service start to finish, Marine Dynamics shark tours contributes directly to local white shark research by being the primary sponsor to the accredited non-profit, the Dyer Island Conservation Trust. Marine Dynamics is the preferred operator for National Geographic, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, the BBC, South African Tourism and many more internationally recognized organizations. As you will see from our reviews, our staff are not only the most knowledgeable in the business but equally the most passionate about great white sharks and providing you an excellent experience you will never forget. Marine Dynamics operates out of The Great White House in Gansbaai, South Africa, where you will be treated to our 5-star hospitality underneath South Africa's only privately owned Southern right whale skeleton! Our custom-built vessel, Slashfin, was launched in 2010 and comes with all the modern amenities expected in a top quality vessel. Marine Dynamics guarantees a marine biologist, a videographer, and best value for money on every trip.

What a wonderful Experience with Marine Dynamics, Diving and watching with Great White Shark was my greatest dream. And i have no regrets to choose Marine Dynamics for doing this. It's not a touristic attraction, it's almost a experience to understand these wonderful animals. thanks to all the Team for this great Adventure

An experience of a lifetime. And with that Marine dynamics always has a biologist on board, so you know the animals are not to much disturbed with this organisation!
