Embark on an adrenalin-filled full-day tour from Cape Town to Gansbaai. Dive with great white sharks and stop at Betty's Bay to meet the penguin colony at the Stony Point Nature Reserve.


  • Experience an adrenaline-filled shark diving adventure in Gansbaai, only 2.5 hours from Cape Town
  • Dive with others in the safety of a cage and see the Great White Shark up close
  • End your day with a stop at the Stony Point Nature Reserve to see the African penguins


Your shark diving adventure begins with an early morning pickup from your accommodation in Cape Town. Ask your hotel to pack a breakfast for you, or enjoy the light breakfast provided upon arrival in Gansbaai. Listen to a briefing about the shark diving experience before setting sail on the open seas for an exciting three hours of shark cage diving. Put on the diving gear provided for you and get ready for an unforgettable experience. Watch closely as the crew engages the sharks, drawing them close to the boat to give you the best views. See this apex predator up close when you take your turn in the cage, admiring its sheer size and streamlined shape as it swims right past you. Return to shore after your cage diving adventure and enjoy a warm shower. Fresh towels will be provided. Sit down with your tour group to watch a DVD of the day's events and receive your diving adventure certificate before heading back to Cape Town. Your return journey takes you through Betty's Bay. Visit the Stony Point Nature Reserve, home to a unique colony of African penguins. See the flightless birds up close and walk along the boardwalk that makes its way through the colony's natural habitat. Return to Cape Town via the scenic R44 coastal route, stopping at a viewpoint along the way to take photos.
