About Marine Dynamics Shark Tours
Marine Dynamics is an internationally recognised leader in shark cage diving and shark conservation. We constantly work to deliver the promise of our motto: Discover and Protect. Every year we host thousands of international and local visitors on our custom-designed diving boat, Slashfin (named after one of our visiting sharks).
Our biologists conduct research on the behaviour and biology of Great White Sharks. Every trip includes a marine biologist/guide who ensures shark and environmental data are logged, and fin ID photos collected, in order to continue to build our database of the sharks in the bay. As a result, we are gaining significant new insights into recognition of individual sharks by their fins, tracking movements of sharks and their response to differences in water temperature, time of year etc. and we are also studying parasites endemic to Great White Sharks. This work, which has been published and presented, is made possible by the funds generated by shark cage diving and donations from clients…evidence that their choice has made a real difference!
We will educate you about shark biology and conservation as you get up close and personal with this amazing apex predator. We promise a five star experience, are certified by Fair Trade in Tourism and hold an award as best for Wildlife Conservation, an African Responsible Tourism award.
Additionally, a videographer/photographer is part of the experienced crew on each trip ensuring that we build up a detailed archive of shark sightings.

The Dyer Island Conservation Trust delivers unique conservation and research programmes in the fragile and critically important marine ecosystem at the southern-most tip of Africa. Here we strive to protect one of the surviving colonies of the endangered African Penguin; the globally important breeding and calving grounds of the Southern Right Whale; and, one of the world’s densest populations of the mysterious Great White Shark.
