Half Day Shark Cage Diving Tour – Cape Town, South Africa *

  • USD$ 185.00 / Per Person; Adult / Child
  • Half Day

Get a once-in-a-lifetime experience by shark cage diving in Gansbaai with Great White sharks. You will be picked up from the hotel. Dyer island is just off the coast and is home to one of the largest seal colonies in Southern Africa. The approximately 60 000 seals provide the main diet of the Great White Shark. The channel that intersects this island is called Shark Alley. We arrive at the crew house an hour before launch. You will be required to complete the necessary indemnity forms followed by breakfast. This is followed by a safety briefing with the tour guide after which the boat, departs from the harbor to look for the sharks on a 20 minute boat trip to Shark Alley(in Winter) or a 10-15 minute trip to the alternative viewing spot (in Summer) where most of the sharks usually hang out. Once the Great White Sharks arrive, you will have the opportunity to photograph these apex predators in their natural environment searching for the food source on the surface, next to the boat. This is when you enter the shark cage! The cage is secured to the side of the boat, and during the cage dives it stays a few feet (meters) below the surface of the water. This means it’s easy for you to get out of the water at any point. If you decide not to get into the cage, you’ll still enjoy excellent views of the sharks swimming around the boat.
