Things to do in Mossel Bay

Mossel Bay Zipline

Welcome to Mossel Bay Zipline – the longest over-the-ocean zip line in the world! Seriously. We checked. Spanning approximately 1100 meters in length (and reaching up to 90km/h*), our zip line lets you glide over the bay for an adrenaline-fuelled experience.

White Shark Africa

Mossel Bay is a very rich area with its abundant sea life of diverse fish, seals, whales, penguins, other sea birds, dolphins, the occasional orca and, of course, a plentiful supply of Great White Sharks. For this reason we decided to base our shark cage diving headquarters on the Garden Route of South Africa.Great White Sharks have always fascinated humans. Perhaps it is their imposing size, their graceful beauty perfectly adapted to their environment, patrolling our oceans since the beginning of time…

If you would like to come just that little bit closer, to experience the Great White Shark in its natural environment above or under water or perhaps just learn a bit more about them. You have come to the right place.
