What You Can Expect

Cage Diving with Great White Sharks from Cape Town

Ride around in the 'slashfin' boat and swim with sharks!

After being picked up from your Cape Town hotel, relax on the approximate two-hour scenic drive to the South African fishing village of Gansbaai -- famous for being one of the best places in the world to see great white sharks.

On arrival in Gansbaai, your driver will drop you off to enjoy breakfast (or lunch if your tour start time is delayed due to bad weather) at the shark-diving center, known as the Great White House. During this time, you'll meet the expert guides who are leading you on your adventure and be fitted for your diving gear.

Board the specialized diving boat and enjoy an exhilarating 20-minute boat ride to Dyer Island. Your captain will stop in the optimal spot, and then the onboard team will tempt the great whites to the boat with bait so you’ll get a fantastic view of the sharks before heading into the shark-diving cage. The boat will stay anchored for approximately two hours, depending on the shark activity.

Your cage is attached to the boat and will stay just a few feet/meters below the water’s surface during your dive, which means it’s quick and easy to get out of the water as soon as you want. If you don't want to get into the cage at all, you’ll still have awesome views of the sharks as they swim around the boat. Keep your eyes peeled for more of the animals known as the ‘marine big five’: sharks, dolphins, whales, seals and penguins.

While you’re on board the boat, hydrate and refuel with the included drinks and snacks. Once back on shore, enjoy a light refreshment at the Great White House, where you can purchase a professional video of your once-in-a-lifetime experience, if you wish.

( from Cape Town)!id advise u stay nearer, I'd somewhere like hermanusif u can. Otherwise it's a 2 hr drive from Cape Town,there and back! But enjoy, the shark sighting was mega amazing, if your going cage diving, take a underwater camara housing, they provide wetsuits, you get20 mins inside the cage! I had lunch as well! So yes I'd recommend it, and I eas1 on my own, so relax, take lots of photos, and enjoy!
