South Africa White Shark Cage Diving
The original home of great-white cage diving can be found in one of the wildest corners of the ocean. The southern sea of South Africa is a hotbed of shark activity, where apex predators cruise the temperamental waters for abundant local fur seals. Set out from Gansbaai for an undersea safari you’ll never forget when you slip into a cage alongside toothed behemoths the size of school buses. Those watching the experience from the boat won’t be disappointed, as the deck provides an all-around view of the sharks as they circle and descend.
Fiji Shark Diving
Considered one of the best shark dives in the world, Fiji’s Beqa Lagoon is famous for encounters with as many as eight species of sharks at one time, including tigers, bulls, sicklefin lemons and many more. The long-running feeding program happens at the Shark Reef Marine Reserve, a marine park created specifically for research and conservation of sharks. The departure point for the shark dive is Pacifc Harbour on Viti Levu, which is also where you can join a white-water-rafting excursion to the Upper Navua Gorge, home to some of the most dramatic and formidable terrain in the South Pacific.
Tiger Beach Bahamas
For underwater photographers and adventurers who are keen to get up close and personal with tiger sharks, there’s one place that’s on everyone’s bucket list. Tiger Beach in the Bahamas is a shallow sand fat where divers not only get within touching distance of multiple tiger sharks, but also Caribbean reefs, lemons and occasional hammerheads that join the scrum.
Whale Sharks Belize
Drawn by schools of spawning snapper, whale sharks show up like clockwork at Belize’s Gladden Spit between the months of March and June. This experience is open to both divers and snorkelers, as whale-shark sightings near the surface are common when the animals surface to feed. The best days for whale-shark encounters of the Placencia coast are around the full moon each month of the season, when the spawning action reaches its zenith.
