False Bay

False Bay in South Africa is sometimes referred to as “Sea Serengheti” because of its incredible richness and diversity of life. You can see here a great white shark leaping out of the sea to catch fast-moving prey like seals, or dive in the safety of a steel cage with this predator. Divers attract the beauty of colorful reefs, countless shipwrecks and diving with prehistoric seven-gill sharks. A popular attraction on the shore is watching a large colony of African penguins and southern whales. False Bay is also home to Cape fur seals, who are friendly and inquisitive companions of divers in the unique ecosystem of the Kelp forest.
