Overview

If you’re looking to add some excitement to your South African excursion, take this Great White Shark Cage Diving tour for a spine-tingling encounter with the predatory mammal. Take a boat ride to Dyer Island which promises an encounter with a school of Great White Sharks in the depths of the ocean. The close proximity of the giant predator as it inspects your cage will send a surge of adrenalin through your body.

If you rather prefer not dive, then gaze at the sharks from above as these mighty creatures break the surface of the water. In addition, you will also see Jackass Penguins, Oystercatchers and seals.

Itinerary

Early in the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach from your hotel in central Cape Town and taken to Gansbaai that lies in Walker Bay at the foot of the Dynefontein Mountains. There will be commentary in English in the coach. Southern Right Whales and Great White Sharks frequent the Atlantic waters of the Danger Point Peninsula and are a major draw card for the town.

At Gansbaai, enjoy a light breakfast and then proceed to Dyer Island (by boat), a breeding ground of Jackass Penguins, Cape Cormorants and Gannets. Experience Great White Shark Cage Diving at the island. The activity is absolutely safe and you do not need any diving experience at all. Before you start, you will receive a short course on safety and the use of equipment. A master diver will assist you into the opening at the top of the cage, which will be lowered in the water. It is a great chance to come face-to-face with this magnificent predator in its natural feeding ground. After the activity, stop for lunch at a local restaurant (cost not included).

You will be dropped back to your hotel in central Cape Town.
