Sea of the free and the home of the brave. Citizens of the world are welcome at the headquarters of the deep; the White Shark Embassy. The widely accepted official residence of the legendary tooth and tail of international waters; the Great White Shark.

Great tales of terror extend across the ragged coastlines of horror stories and nightmares that awaken the dreamer a whiter shade of pale. Greater shades of misunderstanding circle this apex predator whose behaviour is misconceived by trespassers in its own territory. Exploration of the fin-populated waters of Gaansbaai leads to the education of the ever unpopular finned beast.

The Shark Lady, whose passport reads Kim MacLean, serves as ambassador on land for the sharks at sea and has founded this sovereign sanctuary as a shark learning centre. This great white building flanked by suspended Great White Shark replicas is surrounded by the natural aquarium of the Atlantic Ocean in a coastal bay accepted as the capital of Great White Sharks and the playground of Southern Right Whales, Cape Fur Seals and African Penguins. The facility shares the splendour of the shark species shedding light on this creatures dark habits in an even darker habitat.

Surface spectating or submerged cage diving reveals the magnificence of this marine marvel with close encounters of excitement by boat trip. The nature of the animal amazes all bystanders who share the beauty of the planet in the communal ecosystem of earth. The mission of conservation is communicated to all visitors who are entrusted to protect the balance of the animal kingdom.

The Kids Club initiates beach clean-ups, screens educational videos, hosts aquatic themed parties, exercises intertidal adventures and promotes marine conservation as a career. Locals and tourists, young and old, fearful and brave come to face to face with the fascinating fish that patrols South African salted waters. No visa required!
