Spend a day out on the open waters of the Cape's Shark Alley near Dyer Island, which is teeming with Great White Sharks, Cape Fur Seals, Jackass Penguins and a variety of sea birds along with seasonal whale sightings.  Photograph the awe-inspiring Great White Shark feeding at the surface, or climb into the cage and experience a close underwater encounter, capturing unforgettable scenes of these powerful predators.  No experience is required and all equipment is supplied.  Everyone is welcome for surface viewing as they are surface feeders and can also be observed closely from the boat. A light lunch, cool drinks, fruit & other snacks will be provided on board.

Common questions

Do I need diving experience ?  No, the only requirement is being able to swim, our Dive Master will instruct and guide you on the rest.

Where do we get pick up from ? -  Any hotel or Address in the Cape Town central area, please check with your agent if you are not sure.

What Happens if the tour gets cancelled because of bad weather ? -  Diving is very weather dependent, if we have to cancel the dive the day before we will try to re-schedule you on another day or if not possible refund you less 10% administrative charges.

What Happens if we go out and do not see Sharks ? . Gansbaai has the best sightings in the world with a 95% success rate – however if we go out and do not see Sharks we will give you a voucher for the boat trip to  go again another time. You would just have to pay for your transfers. Vouchers are not transferable.

Tip Always book shark diving for an earlier date in your holiday program so that you have spare days to re-schedule in case the weather does not agree.
