The trip from Cape Town to Gansbaai takes about two hours. We are hoping to come face to face with one of the earth's most feared predators: the great white shark..

There is no guarantee that we actually will see sharks, says our guide, and points out that sharks are wild and decide if and when they want to come out. But right here, outside of South Africa's southern tip is the best chance in the world to see white shark.

We climbed down into the cage, which is lowered down the side of the boat. Everyone is on edge. Some are there for the first time, while others have become so "hooked" they're all places where you can see shark.

Suddenly there is life on the otherwise quiet whispering crew – not less than five great whites are curious about us and our baits on this day. We who see them for the first time is struck by their size – and quietness. Great white shark can grow up to six meters long and not become sexually mature until it is 12-15 years. Our giants are "only" about three meters and could be called the children or adolescents.

The Great White Shark has been protected in national waters of South Africa since April 1991 and are protected by law and trade of its parts of jaws, teeth and fins are prohibited. White Shark jaws have been sold for prices fetching over US $50,000 and individual teeth are sold for several hundred dollars.

We go back past Seal Island and is met by a throng of seals – the staple diet of the Great White Sharks. The island is so named because of the great number of Cape Fur Seals that occupy it.

The dense population of fur seals at certain times of the year attracts the seal's main predator, the Great White Shark. Seal Island provides unique opportunities for those who wish to observe attacks by White Sharks on Cape Fur Seal and to observe social interactions amongst both species. The island is well known for the interesting way the sharks grab their prey: They come up from underneath and literally launch themselves out of the water with the seal in their mouth. It has been shown that if the seals enter the "Ring of Death" (where the sharks circle the island) on the surface instead of at the murky bottom, they will be picked off by the faster and more aggressive Great White.
