Half-Day White Shark Cage Diving from Gansbaai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    The main focus of your tour is a natural interaction with the sharks and every effort is made to treat these animals with the respect they deserve.
    Guests are welcomed from 6.30 am with a healthy continental breakfast and a full safety and weather briefing is given before departure.
    Departing at 7.30am, you'll embark on a 15-25 minute boar tide. Here the skipper of the day gives a short lecture on the Great White Shark. He explains how you'll work with the sharks in the area. We spend 2 to 4 hours at sea, depending on how often the sharks visit the boat. Be sure to ask as many questions as you can think up!
    Diving and viewing your cage takes 5 people at a time. Each person spends about 20 minutes in the cage. All diving equipment, including 7mm wetsuits, is provided – you don’t need any experience
    Picnic lunch on board our lunch boxes are packed with bread rolls (with a variety of fillings), sweets, crisps and assorted juices and soft drinks.
    Afternoon tea on your return to dry land (around 11am), you're invited to join the crew for some home-made vegetable soup.

    Great experience. Friendly staff and good explanation by the guide. We saw at least three great white sharks and a lot of sea birds.
