Shark Town

This series, shot in 4k, explores the shark-cage diving industry in the Great White mecca of the world; a flourishing tourist hub in South Africa known as Gansbaai. We meet the Boat owners, seasoned skippers and the travellers on their pilgrimage to dive to the depths and come eyeball-to-eyeball with the deadliest predator in the ocean. We explore the latest technology and scientific advancements in protecting the sharks, and the humans they share the surf with, and get to know the local sharks, each with their own unique personalities. Shark Town presents edge-of-your-seat action in tumultuous South African waters.
