From our crew house in Kleinbaai, just 10 minutes from Gansbaai, we aim to make adrenaline junkies and nature enthusiasts on the best possible shark cage diving experience in South Africa. Gansbaai is known as the safest place in the world from where you can view great white sharks underwater -all year round!

Does your bucket list include an up-close and personal encounter with a Great White Shark? Then it is time to book that flight to Cape Town in South Africa and make your shark diving dream a reality!

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN YOU BOOK FOR A SHARK CAGE DIVING ADVENTURE:

  • You do not need any diving experience when you go down in the shark cage
  • We do not use scuba equipment in the cage as research has shown that the bubbles might frighten the sharks away
  • The cage is made of 12mm galvanized steel mesh and takes up to 8 divers
  • The diving cage floats next to the boat and is attached to the boat at all times
  • You simply hold your breath and on command will go down underwater. The shark will swim away before you are out of breath
  • Shark Cage Diving is safe for children and elders and gives the whole family a wonderful opportunity to bond in a fun environment surrounded by fellow shark lovers
  • Sharks are surface feeders and therefore surface viewing from the boat is trip-for-trip as spectacular as from the cage
  • Included in the shark diving trip price is equipment such as wetsuits, booties, masks, and towels. Life jackets and a waterproof jacket are also supplied.
  • We have enough wetsuits to ensure that every dive is done with dry diving gear
  • We undertake shark cage diving trips 7 days a week, all year round except Christmas & Boxing Day ( 25 & 26 December) and New Year (1 January)
  • The shark cage diving trip starts in Kleinbaai harbour as this is the closest launch site to our dive locations
  • The duration of the trip is open-ended, depends on the weather/sea conditions and is subject to availability 
  • We advise you to make the whole day available as the launch times can only be confirmed the day before your dive
  • It might also be wise to set aside more than one day for shark cage diving when on holiday, as the trip is weather dependent and when sea conditions change rapidly, we might have to cancel the trip and reschedule to another date
  • Excluded in the price is a video link to your shark diving experience and it can be purchased in addition to the dive/viewing excursion at an extra cost of R300
  • Get a FREE video link ( worth R300 ) of your day trip if you BOOK ONLINE
  • The footage of your trip will be screened immediately on return and ready to take home on departure

WHAT SHOULD YOU BRING

WEAR
• Bathing Costume, warm clothing (it is always cold at sea), non-slip shoes, wind jacket, sunglasses, sunblock & hat

DO NOT FORGET
• Camera, batteries & extra memory card!
• Anti-Nausea medication (should seasickness be a concern- recommend that it is taken the night before and two hours prior to the trip)
