Shark Cage Diving Tour

Spend a day with one of the ocean’s greatest predators in the world’s most famous Great White shark hunting ground. Gansbaai’s Shark Alley is a 2.5-hour drive from Cape Town. Here on the Shark Cage Diving Tour you won’t only get a chance to meet the Great White up close but you will also see other ocean inhabitants from seals and rays to Southern Right Whales in season (July to November).

Since most of the activity happens near the water surface level on the Shark Cage Diving Tour you won’t need any diving experience or special diving equipment. The crew will provide you with a wetsuit, a diving mask, and all the support you need.  The viewing cage, in which you will be safely positioned, is attached to and floats right next to the boat. You can spend between 10 and 30 minutes sharing the ocean waters with these incredible creatures from the safety of the cage. The time may depend on the weather and the number of sharks. 

If you’re not up for the cage, viewing from the comfort of the boat can be just as inspiring. Meeting one of nature’s most feared predators on the Shark Cage Diving Tour is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you’ll never forget.
