So i ran and got my Mavic Pro and started filming , wow it was so awesome to watch that seal hunt and my guests who are SUPing were amazed by what they got to see. I hope you like this please leave me comment and let me know your thoughts. Hope you all having a great weekend. G"

Video: Great white shark v seals in Plett

Watch as a great white shark attempts to hunt seals and the seals fight back.

Lukhanyo Mdzeke, know locally as Luck'z, is a Tourist Guide in Plett. He was on a hike at Robberg Nature Reserve on Friday 18th May 2018 and had the chance to get this footage of a great white shark trying to get breakfast (attacking seals).

"I would like to think that Plettenberg Bay is the only tourist destination I know of which offers a land-based shark viewing spot. This is not the first time that I've experienced this and it's thrilling I must say; absolutely blessed to see the wild in action."

Video: Adopt a Swimmer – safety in water

In April, Sasfin once again had the privilege of working with Ocean Child's John McCarthy to ensure that the children from Adopt A Swimmer in Plettenberg Bay were safer, more confident in the water and also, had the opportunity to catch a few waves!

The children built their confidence in the water and had a great amount of fun doing it. Learning these important skills saves lives and creates more sustainable futures.

Special thanks go to John for his kindness and commitment to sharing his knowledge with the children; Clayton from Learn to Surf Plett; and Louise Auersperg and her team at Adopt a Swimmer who always work tirelessly to ensure that as many children as possible learn and share their skills for more sustainable futures. #Plettitsafeeling
