Eco-Friendly Adventures: Marine Dynamics

Taking eco-tourists on captivating trips at sea to cage dive with Great White Sharks and meet the rest of the Marine Big 5 is only a glimpse of many things that Marine Dynamics do to protect and conserve the critically important Dyer Island ecosystem around Gansbaai in South Africa’s Western Cape province.

Marine Dynamics Shark Tours and Dyer Island Cruises whale watching have been Fair Trade Tourism certified since 2008 and in 2016 added their successful International Marine Volunteer Programme.

Marine Dynamics’ Responsible Tourism Policy is a credo that the group businesses all adhere to: “Our every activity is driven by our motto ‘Discover and Protect’. We consciously and actively: operate responsibly with due care for the marine and terrestrial environment; conduct ethical scientific research, which contributes to the conservation of species; create conservation awareness amongst locals and visitors; contribute positively to the community and the economy in which we operate; offer fair wages and good working conditions for our employees; and contribute positively to the protection of cultural heritage.”

Marine Dynamics is the eco-tourism partner of the owner established Dyer Island Conservation Trust helping save the endangered African penguin, the vulnerable great white shark through effective research, supporting community education, marine animal rescues, and marine pollution efforts.
