Great White Shark (Carcharodon Carcharias)

Average size: 15 ft / 4.5 m
Maximum size: 20 ft / 6 m
Color: grey or blue grey above, white below
Note: no specific season, rarely seen; may use 20 to 30,000 teeth in a lifetime.
Roland has encountered exactly 3 Great Whites in 15 years and over 2800 dives on Protea Banks.
Although the White Shark does patrol the coast line of KZN in our winter months, they almost never go as far as 8km offshore to Protea Banks.
The Sharks Board nets kill on average about 3-5 Great Whites every winter season. We only include this specie of shark in this website for the sake of completion.
