Shark Cage Diving – Gansbaai
Close to the southernmost tip of Africa, 5 miles (8km) out to sea, lies Shark Alley – a favourite hunting ground of the omnipotent Great White Shark. Shark Alley is a channel between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock and is protected from the worst of the Southern Atlantic’s weather.
Dyer Island, Geyser Rock and Shark Alley are teeming with sea life! Cape Fur Seals, Jackass Penguins and a wide variety of sea birds can be seen on your shark cage diving trip… and with all this food around… the Great White Sharks are sure to be there!!!
Great White Sharks are spotted preying on seals so frequently that the area is known as the Great White Shark capital of the world, and this is where Great White Shark Cage Diving will take you for the experience of a lifetime – shark cage diving!!!!
Cage diving with great white sharks means spending some one-on-one quality time with these magnificent beasts. Shark Cage Diving is nerve-wracking yet intensely rewarding, eye opening and extreme. You don’t need any scuba diving qualifications, experience or equipment to go shark cage diving – just yourself and a strong dose of Dutch courage.
For the more feint-hearted you’ll be pleased to know that these awesome Great White Sharks are easily seen from the Shark Cage Diving boat… sometimes even launching clear of the water in natural hunting attacks.
Shark Cage diving has become a massive interest for tourists, bringing thousands of people to the area of Gansbaai each year. Shark Cage Diving is a great adventure for the whole family.
