This private, full-day tour of Gansbaai starts with a pickup from your Cape Town Hotel. Because this is a private tour, departure times are flexible, and must be worked out in advance.

Once you’ve been picked up from your hotel by an air-conditioned vehicle, relax on the ride over to Gansbaai — it’ll take about two hours. Take in sights on the way of Sir Lowry’s Pass, Elgin valley, and Houwhoek Pass.

In Gansbaai, your exciting shark-diving experience begins. Please note an extra fee needs to be paid for the cage diving, and isn’t included in this tour’s cost. If for some reason, the weather doesn’t allow for cage diving you can choose to go ziplining or ATVing instead.

Otherwise, board a boat, and listen to instructions about how to safely cage dive. Then get your equipment on and get ready to go. Your cage is dropped into the water, and you can spend about three hours watching sharks swim in their natural habitat.

Afterward, choose one of three activities to do on the way back to Cape Town. Walk the cliffs of Hermanus, wine taste in Overberg, or visit a penguin colony at Stoney Point. Whatever you pick, your guide drives you to your hotel at the end of the day.

Great Tour but a little misleading

We got to see sharks which was awesome! It was so much fun. Our tour guide was so nice and knowledgable. They really went to of our way to make sure we were happy. However, it did say in the description in the tour that we would also stop at one of three places either a vineyard, a hike or visit penguins. We didn't do any of that nor was that even offered to us. It was a long day because the shark place was 2.5 hours away, however I would have preferred that it wasn't even in the description then. I was looking forward to either the penguins or the hike. That was the only downside.

Thank you for your review and I am delighted that you had a great time. Unfortunately the recent roadworks on the way to the Gansbaai harbour have made it impossible to include the extra activities. I have, however, taken on board your valid criticism regarding this and have amended our product description accordingly.

To see sharks in their natural environment. Luck of the draw. Changing into wet suits on a rocking boat and in the open is not ok for everyone. Preference would be to suit up before boarding. Crew were great.
