Overview

You may think you’re a fear-defying thrill lover, but can you handle the ultimate heart-pounding experience? Find out in Cape Town by cage diving with great white sharks. This full-day shark-diving experience takes you out into the open ocean off the shore of Gansbaai and puts you within touching distance of one of the world’s most feared predators. Before jumping in, you'll learn about the sharks from the onboard marine biologist and expert guides. Breakfast, snacks and hotel-pick up and drop off are included.

Highlights

  • Breakfast included
  • Close encounter with wildlife
  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Free snacks included
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide


What You Can Expect

Pickup from your centrally located Cape Town hotel, and then relax in comfort during the approx. 2-hour journey.

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.

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.

Your experience concludes with a drop-off at your hotel in Cape Town.

An early rise was required to get to the place which is over 2 hours drive away. Our driver stopped on the way to and from at a bay where we could see whales swimming incredibly close to the shore. On the way back we also stopped at a penguin sanctuary. A mid-break home for a snack was also welcome. The trip itself is well organised. You can see the sharks well from the boat and so don't have to get into the water if you don't want to. The equipment was fine and snacks particularly after being in the sea were nice and welcome. There were a number of sharks seen but they were mainly Copperback sharks. We were lucky that just as we were about to leave we did see a Great White shark. You do have to be patient as the sharks are not reliable and there are periods with no activity. The naturalist on the boat gave a good explanation of what is known about the sharks and how it is researched which was interesting.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!

The company who ran this did an exceptional job. We saw Great Whites and Copper Sharks. It is certainly an early day but it is well worth it. My 1 bucket list item has officially been checked off!

Do this one!!! Water is cold but really worth it to see the sharks this close. The time on the boat is also exceptional as you get to see the sharks from a different perspective. A seal showed up and gave us a show which was fun. The water is cold, but the wet suits are good insulation. Be careful eating the breakfast before hand - it could be cause for motion sickness. The soup and bread afterwards is wonderful. Staff and crew were the best.
