Mossel Bay on the Garden Route has probably the most accessible Great White Sharks in the world. The bay is very much protected in the winter months and the sea conditions are normally calm and comfortable. Seal Island in Mossel Bay is only 2km from the harbour and very close to the local beach. The ride to the island takes only 10 minutes so is ideal for people worried about sea sickness. In the summer months the boat works with the sharks on the far side of the bay which is a 20-30 minute ride and most of the days the conditions are good.
