You may think you are a fear defying thrill lover, but can you handle the ultimate heart-pounding experience? Find out in Cape Town by diving with great white sharks. This full day shark diving experience takes you out into the open ocean off the shore of Gansbaai and puts you within touching distance of one of the world’s most feared predators. Before jumping in you’ll learn about the sharks from the onboard marine biologists and expert guides.

Board the specialised diving boat and enjoy a 20 minute boat ride to Dyer Island. Your captain will stop in the optimum spot, and then the onboard team will tempt the great whites to the boat with bait so you’ll get a fantastic view of the sharks before heading into the shark-diving cage. The boat will stay anchored for approximately two hours, depending on the shark activity.

Your cage is attached to the boat and will stay just a few feet below the surface of the water during your dive. You’ll have awesome views of the sharks as they swim around the boat. Keep your eyes peeled for more of the animals known as the ‘marine big five’: sharks, dolphins, whales, seals and penguins.
