White Shark Cage Diving with Transfer - Morning Trip

Simonstown

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

What a great trip! The crew was very knowledgeable, and friendly! We got lucky and saw a baby whale on the way to seal island. 3 Different 7 Gil sharks right on the cage! So much fun. My only comment would be to potentially advertise the dives as Shark Dives and not specific species I.E Great White Dive. Would definitely recommend to others, and use you guys again if im ever back in south africa! thanks so much! - Chris Nagel


My family and I had an incredible experience on our shark dive. All personnel, both at the store and on the boat were extremely friendly and helpful. Special mention to one of the boat crew (sorry, I can't remember his name), who helped me a lot by fixing my wet suit as the zipper broke and there were no more of my size onboard (I'm a pretty big type of bloke). His skill to find a solution and sort me out in record time was incredible. Unfortunately we didn't get to see any white shark, as apparently they had disappeared from the area at the time, probably due to orcas, but the experience with the seven gilled prehistoric sharks was awesome nevertheless. Many thanks to all our a wonderful day! - Carlos Soler


I had a great experience on the White Shark Cage Diving Morning Trip. The transfer service was prompt and courteous, and the trip was a lot of fun. Everything was as described. I highly recommend this tour and company, especially given the dedication of the crew to maximize the experience for the guests. We were one of the first boats to arrive and the very last to leave, giving us the most time possible for shark sightings. - Richard


Outstanding experience! The crew was wonderful and knowledgeable. Of course, the sharks stole the show. Such beauties! And we had a bonus - escorted by dolphins on the boat ride back to shore. - Lindsay & Jonathan Snekser


We thoroughly enjoyed our dive trip and sooooo glad we booked with you. The tour company sponsored trip that was to go out the next day was canceled due to lack of shark activity in Gansabii (sp) and one of the entire reasons we came was to see the Great Whites....Email communication was great and the transportation was super. I would definitely do this trip and company again. Thank YOU and all those on the boat. Great job - Joe Oliverio
