They say that true passion is when you take what you love and turn it into your work and this is how African Shark Eco-Charters was born. Being with the great white sharks is what they love! And what they also love is to share this with you.
For years now ASEC have been changing perceptions and instilling a love for great white sharks in others. Whether you are a guest, photographer or filmmaker, you will walk away with a positive attitude and in turn pass that onto others.
African Shark Eco-Charters is a top shark diving company and they run the safest operation in False Bay. Their aim is for you to experience your great white shark breaching or cage diving trip in a natural environment, putting sharks first with a 'first do not harm approach', and managing their environmental footprint as much as possible.
Your safety comes first as well, so they'll never go to sea in unfit conditions. An environmentally sensitive company that in 2009 established a written environmental policy in order to manage and reduce their footprint.
What African Shark Eco-Charters does.
They offer you a natural encounter with the great white shark, giving you the chance to observe their social interactions and their natural predatory behaviour on Cape Fur Seals of Seal Island in the magnificent False Bay.
Rob, also known as “shark legend Rob” or “Captain Rob” has been working with great white sharks for the last 20+ years and has dedicated his life to great white sharks. Rob has been working with great white sharks since 1992 and has become an expert on them and their predatory behaviour. First in Gansbaai, and then from 1996 he specialised in leading and operating expeditions in beautiful False Bay.
Rob is one of the most experienced field persons involved in all areas of the white shark cage diving industry in South Africa. Rob has been to sea more than any shark person in the industry and has been running trips for 16+ years in False Bay. He is seriously “hands on” and still goes on almost every trip.
Rob likes it when guests ask questions. So, please, be that guest and ask as many questions as you like, or just talk “shark”, and make him a happy man!
