Gansbaai Eco-Friendly Shark Cage Diving

1. Gansbaai Eco-Friendly Shark Cage Diving

If the transfer option is selected, your adventure will start pickup from your hotel in Cape Town. Take a 2.5-hour drive along a scenic route to get to your destination - the Great White House. Once there, enjoy a breakfast or lunch before a safety briefing about what to expect. Then, stroll to the harbor to board a dedicated shark-diving vessel. Journey to Dyer Island in 20 minutes and drop anchor where the sharks reside. Your boat will have all the amenities, along with drinks and snacks for your comfort. Collect your waterproof bag containing your dive kit and then get up close to these magnificent animals in their natural environment, protected of course by a cage. You'll be completely safe, but your adrenaline will be pumping like crazy! This is sure to be an experience you will never forget. Travel through shark alley if conditions permit before returning to land for a debriefing and a warm bowl of soup. Then, enjoy free entry to the African penguin and seabird sanctuary on your way back to Cape Town (if option selected).

What people are saying about Gans Bay

Great experience. The tour that was actually booked at 11 a.m. was canceled due to the weather or postponed to 7 a.m. As a result, I was picked up at the hotel at 4 a.m. There was a small breakfast in Gaansbai. I would not eat anything retrospectively. I was told that the sea was not worse than usual, despite the rather bad weather that day. However, sooner or later 70% of the participants became seasick and several vomited. I was able to enjoy at least 2/3 of the tour. It was a shame that we didn't see a big white man (that was always a dream of mine). But it was not necessarily to be expected in January and not the fault of the organizers (season for great white sharks from April). It was still absolutely exciting in the cage and I saw some copper sharks. Great photos were taken. I would do it again. You felt very safe. The organization was great.

Very well organised with knowledgeable and helpful staff. Definitely worth the journey from Cape Town. Attended the day with my 2 grownup children who also rated the day/experience as one to remember and also thoroughly enjoyed the day. Would highly recommend!

If you are thinking Discovery Channel Shark Week... Stop! This ain’t it but it is still good and quite an experience. No showers so be prepared for a 3 hour trip back to Capetown feeling yucky!

Amazing, Home on top I don't think I could find a better place to go diving and see the sharks

It was awesome. It was even more beautiful than we dreamed it would be.
