GUEST HOUSES - OVERBERG WHALE ROUTE
"bay of geese," sometimes referred to as Gans Bay) is a fishing village
and popular tourist destination in the Overberg District Municipality,
Western Cape, South Africa. The big attraction of this area is the great
white shark. Dyer and Geyser Islands, off the small fishing village of
Gansbaai offer probably the best shark cage diving in the world. A number
of boats operate in the area - chumming to attract the sharks' attention
and vying with each other for the best position. Do it soon, as there is
increasing resistance to a practice that many people consider to be morally
indefensible, ecologically destructive and dangerous. Also visit
De Kelders, a prime whale watching area.
