Shark Cage Diving

You will be picked up at your accommodation and driven to Gansbaai and that is where the day will begin with a tasty continental breakfast and a safety briefing on current sightings, indemnities, wet suits, and equipment.

Our crew will then welcome you onboard our custom-built 36ft, 4-tonne catamaran, “Shark Team”. Although she has a passenger capacity of 36, we limit passenger numbers to 20, offering a more intimate experience and providing greater comfort and increased viewing capability. You will be accompanied by our intrepid skippers, a Dive Master and support crew.

Once we’ve reached our diving location and dropped anchor, our crew will create a scent trail, while you patiently await your electrifying first glimpse of the iconic fin breaking the water’s surface.

No dive is ever the same, so we can never predict what will happen once we are on-site nor how many sharks we will see. Great Whites are incredibly nomadic and if you consider that there are less than 5000 of them left on our planet, even if you only see 1 shark on your dive, you can count yourself very fortunate.

Back on the deck, you will be able to observe shark activity that occurs close to the water surface. Lunch boxes containing a variety snacks will be on hand for you to enjoy at leisure, with soft drinks and juices offering added refreshments while you bask under South Africa’s legendary sunny skies.

After about 3 hours out at sea, you will be ready to return to shore where comforting soup awaits you, giving you a chance to regroup and share the day’s experiences before being driven back to your meeting point.
