Gansbaai Shark Cage Dive from Cape Town

Gansbaai Shark Cage Dive From Cape Town


The ultimate in wildlife adventure tours has to be the face to face introduction to the Great White Shark. Few places can offer the conditions found off the coast of Gansbaai that make shark cage diving a daily event. Join us on this full day tour from Cape Town.


Trip Itinerary

Shuttle Pickup
Your friendly Guide will collect you from your front door within 10km of the city centre. Our route to Gansbaai traverses the Elgin Valley and passes through Hermanus, a whale hotspot between June and November.
Breakfast and Safety Briefing
You arrive at least one hour before the launch departure. You will be required to complete the necessary indemnity forms followed by breakfast. This is followed by a safety briefing with our tour guide after which our boat departs from the harbour to look for the sharks on a 20-minute boat trip to Shark Alley(in Winter) or a 10-15 minute trip to the alternative viewing spot (in Summer) where most of the sharks usually hang out.
The Boat and Crew
The vessel is manned by the Skipper and Dive Master, a tour guide, a shark handler and a videographer. The boat is equipped with sufficient diving equipment to accommodate all our guests on their cage dive and the dive master ensures that everyone is safe and comfortable with the experience. The boat is also equipped with all the necessary safety gear as well as a life-boat large enough to accommodate all the guests should it become necessary. Snacks including chips, fruit, bread rolls and water are available for the duration of the trip.
The Dive
Divers can spend at least 20 minutes in the cage unless shark sightings are really meagre when time in the cage will be limited. This is to give everyone an opportunity to see the sharks from the cage. We can only accommodate 20 people per trip, an advantage in the reduction of waiting time before and after dives.
Return to Shore
When everyone is satisfied with their viewing and dives, we return to the harbour and Crew House for a light lunch and a viewing of the video taken during the trip. This is also the time to purchase your copy before your departure.
Return to Cape Town
After an exiting day , we return to Cape Town about 10 Hours after we left

Amazing Tour! Stunning sights and awesome guides. We had such a great time. We were a large group, but easily accommodated by Shark and Safari Tours. The location was amazing, the weather was perfect, and the sights were beautiful.

The company was recommended to us by a friend, and now I can see why! It was certainly one of the highlights of our vacation. The guides were all very friendly, experienced, and professional which made it a real treat.

I was visiting with my family, most of whom had never experienced something like this before, and we thought it would be a good idea - we're sure glad that we did! The experienced guides made sure that the whole day went smoothly, and luckily for us the weather was great. Highly recommended!
