Dyer Island is one of only a view natural breeding waters for the Great White Shark
in the world. The area of water between the mainland and Dyer Island is commonly referred to as ‘shark alley’ attributed
to the 50 000 seals that colonize this island and naturally attract sharks, although it is not shark- diving alone that
makes a visit to Kleinbaai enticing.

Many families prefer the little village for fishing excursions. Kleinbaai is renowned for it’s angling waters,
both from boat and from the rocks. Launch your own boat in the safety of Kleinbaai harbor or book a trip aboard
one of the many Shark-cage tourist boats for a memorable sea trip. Cape Salmon and Giant Cob are some of the
more common fish caught by fishermen from boats while crayfish and galleon are caught in the pools and galleys
at shore. There is a gravel road connecting Kleinbaai along the rugged coast with a number of little rock pools
