Situated just a few miles south of the small fishing village of Gansbaai we found ourselves immersed in the cool waters of Shark Alley. The narrow rocky inlet was far from a traditional harbor and while its mouth looked distinctly treacherous we were assured it was safe. This narrow channel of water that runs between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock is home to some 50,000 Cape fur seals and consequently a favored snack for the Great White Sharks looking for their next meal.
