Set off on a half-day shark tour in False Bay. Keep your eyes peeled for shark species including the bronze whaler and seven-gill cow sharks. Other wildlife can include seals, dolphins, and whales.


  • Get up close with the ocean’s apex predator on this signature Cape Town experience
  • Look for blue sharks, mako sharks, seven gill sharks, and, of course, the notorious great white shark at Seal Island or Cape Point
  • Enjoy a safe experience with first-aid trained staff on a purpose-built boat


This half-day tour, just outside Cape Town, allows you to see a variety of shark species throughout the year according to the seasons, weather, water temperature, and other factors. Venture to Seal Island or Cape Point to see seven-gill cow sharks, mako sharks, blue sharks, and great white sharks. The location for the day will be determined by the best shark activity and sea conditions and will be confirmed with you the day before your trip. A small group of guests onboard allows for better viewing opportunities and a longer cage dive. The cage accommodates four guests comfortably and is fixed to the boat just above the surface of the water.
