Dive sites: Shark Alley

Here’s Shark Alley, home of False Bay’s resident sevengill cowsharks, and site of some eventful dives. Courtesy of Google maps.

You park here, and climb down the slope to the rocky shore. The entry point you choose will vary depending on tidal and swell conditions.

Tony’s van, the divemobile, was broken into here, as was Tami’s car. The suspects (whom we spotted from the surface just before we started the dive) were a very tall man, and a shorter woman with dark hair. They were driving a small white or silver car.

Break ins are a fairly common occurrence for this dive site and it’s essential to take your own  car guard when you go there.
