Considered as the shark cage diving capital of South Africa, Gansbaai offers shark lovers the opportunity to dive with the sharks throughout the year.
Geyser Rock, some 15 nautical miles west of the Gansbaai shore is home to approximately 60, 000 Cape Fur seals, the big attraction for the mysterious and graceful Great White Sharks.
Alongside this island is Dyer Island, housing breeding colonies of the endangered African Penguin, Cape Gannets, and a number of species of Cormorants, along with pelagic seabirds which visit this area.
Between these 2 islands is the famous Shark Alley, famous for the Great White Shark predation on the seals.
A typical white shark diving excursion takes between 3-5 hours, depending on the weather, sea conditions and shark behaviour. Trips depart from Kleinbaai harbour and anchor site depends on the sea conditions, weather and previous shark sightings.
All Gansbaai shark cage diving tours include 2 light meals and snacks on board.
Day trips from Cape Town are possible with the transfer option.
