White Shark Cage Diving - Morning Trip


Activity Description

Join Shark Explorers for this jaw-dropping shark cage diving experience in False Bay, a mere 30min drive from Cape Town international airport and a white shark hotspot. Great White sharks (Carcharodon carcharias), are probably the most charismatic and popular of the shark species.

You don’t even have to climb in the cage to get a good view as many of the sharks swim at the surface and some even pop their heads out to have a look at you. You can also experience a Great White Shark launching itself out of the water to catch its’ Seal prey. These attacks can last for minutes at a time and the sharks have a 50% success rate at catching their prey.

After experiencing this breathtaking interaction, we lower a cage in the water and you can have the opportunity of viewing these spectacular predators in their natural environment.

Customer Reviews

It was a great experience to spend this day with the Shark Explorers Team. We have only good memories from all, and also to help us with the arragements and also at the boat etc. We believe that we took the best choice on going on this experience. The only two sad things is that we forgot my blue hat at the day, and also we did not see the white shark, however it was really really great.. we loved it, we already want to do it again. Best Regards, Aline and Leonardo. - ALINE LIMA +55 11 98905-7477 LEONARDO LIMA + 55 97434-2092

Great Service, bad luck. - Santiago Alonso

Fantastic experience! Well explained and well guided tour. Being in the cage with my 3 sons and seeing Great White Shark up close and personal is something that will linger for quite a while. - Ronan Felix

Good day and thank you very much, dear Shark Explorers! The Shark Explorers team is excellent! All of them are extremely friendly to their passengers - wild nature admirers and they really do their best efforts to demonstrate Great White Sharks. I highly recommend to all to join Shark Explorers early morning Shark Breaching and Shark Cage Diving trips. I participated in 3 such trips and enjoyed a lot each time in July 2018. I want to thank you again. Everything was amazing and wonderful. Perhaps, I'll return to Simon's Town again to shake hands with all of you! Good bye! From Russia With Love!
