False Bay is a mere 30min drive from Cape Town international airport and a shark hotspot. This fun and educational trip is for the whole family, with no age restrictions and no experience needed. We generally target three species of shark on these excursions namely Great white sharks, Bronze whaler sharks, and the prehistoric Sevengill shark. These sharks are awesome! Nothing compares to seeing a shark in real life for the first time and all preconceived ideas are crushed with the first viewing.

What at amazing experience! I have been diving with sharks already in Bahamas but going with Shark Explores was a whole new level. The professionalism of the crew! Their knowledge, how they treated every guest and cater to everyone’s special needs and desires, their patience, their willingness to give the best experience is completely unmatched. If you are looking for the best look no further, you will be great full you went to experience diving with sharks with them.

We had an amazing time doing 2 dives with Shark Explorers, in the kelp forests and with seals. The team was sooooo awesome, fun, and attentive and we loved both instructors and our captain. The dive shop is great with warm drinks and showers, the gear was good quality, and the snacks onboard added to the experience too! I’m so glad I met one of the owner’s Stephen at the WTM conference and we were able to come out and dive with him and his team. Next time we are back we will be diving with shark explorers no question!
