Marine Dynamics tourism hub offers five star shark cage diving and whale watching/eco tours in the unique Dyer Island ecosystem of Gansbaai, South Africa. The companies are Fair Trade Tourism certified and believe that, “Your Choice Makes a Difference.” Through our environmental project, the Dyer Island Conservation Trust, we are making a real difference for conservation and the community by: conducting effective science on marine species through daily observational data to translate into evidence-based conservation initiatives and legislation, conservation projects for the survival of the African penguin, supporting community education, building effective tourism and conservation partnerships, fundraising towards research, conservation, education.
Our key projects are: African penguin conservation which includes a nest project providing critical protection during the penguin fledgling stage; and in 2015 we opened a rehabilitation facility, the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary. Invaluable research on great white sharks by marine biologists includes tagging and tracking, behavioural surveys, wound healing, environmental parameter monitoring and population studies. Support of whale and dolphin research. We handle all marine animal rescue, strandings and sampling on our coastline. Our Environmental Education Programme known as DEEP educates a dedicated group of young learners for three years measuring the impact and growth of each individual. Marine pollution efforts include the unique fishing line bin project and monthly beach clean ups. The Dyer Island ecosystem is unique and fragile and it is the priority of Marine Dynamics to ensure the marine life in the area flourish and remain for many years to come.
