Imagine fun, fear, and exhilarating thrill all mixed into a single trip. This is what you can anticipate with our epic Shark Cage Diving Tour! It gives you the unique chance to see the legendary Great White Shark in their natural environment. Fascinatingly, this ultimate marine experience can be enjoyed by anyone above 12 years, so it really doesn’t matter whether you’re a novice / first-timer or a certified diver.
Following your arrival at the quaint settlement of Gansbaai – roughly 150 kilometers from Cape Town, you’ll hop aboard a boat after relishing a light breakfast. This will cruise you towards Dyer Island, gliding along the famed Shark Alley. Your licensed operator will be happy to share interesting facts about the region’s astonishing marine wildlife along the way, while clearing all your doubts on sharks which are mostly misconstrued as a nasty man killer. As the boat is anchored off at a sheltered area, a uniquely formulated, safe chum mix is used to draw sharks closer to the vessel.
Once the shark is spotted, jump into a strong cage which is lowered a few feet down the ocean surface. It especially fascinates those who wish to have a face-to-face encounter with sharks. The terrifying yet thrilling underwater experience is sure to give you goosebumps as this not only offers unobstructed ocean views but also the closest-ever vantage point to interact with this majestic predator that is circling around you, sometimes showing off its sharp teeth and even breaching the surface.
Now if you’re scared or don’t want to get wet, we assure you that watching the sharks from the boat is nothing short of exciting. On your return cruise, you’ll get to admire the Seal Colony with more than 60000 Cape Fur Seals, which captivatingly is one of the main reasons for the thriving white shark population in the region. Before this three-hour cruise concludes, relish complimentary meals and refreshments onboard.
