Excerpt from The Great Whites of False Bay by Dirk Schmidt

The Great Whites of False BayNamibiana Buchdepot has shared an excerpt from Dirk Schmidt’s book The Great Whites of False Bay. Read the introduction to this distinguished book about the the behavior of Great White sharks in South African waters.

The Great White shark is undoubtedly one of the most well-known and most awesome apex predators of the seas and is also the largest predating fish on earth. The Great White sharks visiting Seal Island annually display a unique behavior during hunting and predation of seals, by occasionally launching themselves out of the water in pursuit of their prey. These breaches are spectacular and can be seen nowhere else in the world on such a consistent basis as in False Bay, South Africa, making it the prime destination for viewing these sharks in their natural environment.
