Very nice video in above post. Here are some great pictures:|
In addition, here is another photo and some detail:
Great White Sharks have undoubtedly breached for centuries but at certain localities it happens more often than at others. One such area is Seal Island False Bay, South Africa. Here Great White Sharks use the breach as the final effort that often culminates in a successful predation. When these great white sharks breach the person fortunate enough to see such a spectacle is left with an indelible memory.
Since appearing in Air Jaws as well as more than 35 other documentaries that Apex Shark Expeditions have facilitated, the breaching Great Whites Sharks of Seal Island are amongst the most talked about natural phenomena worldwide. This phenomenon is not only for the worlds’ famous film crews but can also be witnessed by you on one of our various expeditions.
During the high season you should have the unique opportunity of seeing the white sharks breach out of the water to hunt seals, as well as have excellent close-up views when we attract the sharks to the boat for closer viewing as well as cage diving.
The intense predator/prey interactions and breaching behavior of the Great White Shark is what sets Seal Island, False Bay apart from any other shark spot in the world.
