Without sharks, you take away the apex predator of the ocean, and you destroy the entire food chain.
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.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Owing to massive negative media Publicity over the years, the Great White Shark has become one of the most maligned, misunderstood, even hated animal on our fragile planet.
It has been pursued, hunted and indiscriminately killed, over the years, to the point where its continued existence hangs in precarious balance.
If we can dispel some of the hype and myth, and the fear which surrounds this magnificent creature, and even if through our operation, we only introduce some element of objective perspective to the people that we come into contact with, then we have, at least, made some contribution to maintaining the natural balance in at least one ecosystem, in our communal home, Earth.
WHAT WE DO
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.
