Small, exclusive and informative shark diving trips

Sharklady Adventures offers small exclusive shark diving trips and educational tours twice daily. This means that the trip is more informative AND you’ll have more time in the cage. We are committed to being a responsible and eco-friendly operation. We do not interfere with the sharks and we do not pollute the environment. Sharklady Adventures complies with the strictest code of conduct and safety for our clients, our boat, and the great white sharks, as laid down by local Marine & Coastal Management. Sharklady Adventures conserve and protect the sharks and all marine life on our coastline. We are dedicated to creating awareness of Great White Sharks through education, especially to the local children who are the future of our country. Shark cage diving is an awesome experience from both above and below the surface. Getting close to this most magnificent apex predator leaves you feeling exhilarated to say the least. Get to know the Great White Shark a bit better and book your Shark Dive.

Who is the Shark Lady?

In life, we come across many different people during our journey. We are after all, different threads interwoven in the fabric of life. Yet sometimes, just sometimes…we have the good fortune of meeting someone extraordinary. Someone whose passion, dedication and beliefs set them apart, someone who strives tirelessly to educate and create awareness of creatures who cannot speak for themselves. Someone who has made a difference to the lives of a much maligned and misunderstood animal, the great white shark, and has dedicated her life to changing misconceptions and garnering respect for this beautiful apex predator…that someone is the Sharklady, Kim Maclean.

The towns of the Gansbaai, Kleinbaai and Hermanus and the marine creatures swimming in the waters off their coast are very fortunate to have her in their midst.

Kim Maclean, the Sharklady, has been passionate about sharks and other marine creatures since a very early age. After matriculating at Cape Town High School in 1978, Kim applied to the Department of Sea Fisheries and was accepted as a technical assistant in various sections including demersal, pelagic and southern oceans.





Kim came to the Overstrand as a young marine technician with a passion for sharks and has grown into a successful businesswoman who has proven her worth as an ambassador for the region.  She has taken her passion and used it to educate the world about sharks. She invests time, money, expertise and herself into conserving our environment, educating people and promoting the region to the world.  She is always ready to assist members of the community, where the need arises, for example sponsoring fabrics and cottons to the Umzobee Initiative in Gansbaai.  She also assisted young musicians and DJs from Zwelihle by opening doors for them and giving them access to her music equipment.  She gets involved with the disadvantaged communities and never says no if her help and support are needed.  We as a community are delighted to recognize her contributions and to honour her.
