Take an exhilarating boat ride into the shark-filled waters of Gansbaai. Get up close and personal with the majestic beasts from the safety of a metal cage positioned in the water.


  • Enjoy an adventurous boat ride en route to the shark cage diving site
  • Encounter great whites, copper sharks, and even stingrays up close
  • Take the opportunity to photograph these apex predators in their natural environment
  • Pick up insights into the aquatic ecosystem of South Africa while on board


Begin your excursion into the thrilling marine environment of South Africa with continental breakfast alongside a safety briefing by the boat’s skipper. Then, head out on a 20-minute boat ride to an area known for being brimming with sharks and other majestic ocean denizens.  Once you’ve arrived, you can make the choice to watch the sharks from the raised observation deck, or to be lowered into the water in a metal cage for a true adrenaline rush. Watch a variety of sharks circling you, comfortable in a provided wetsuit, and safe behind the specially-designed cage. Keep your eyes peeled for dolphins, stingrays, and other wildlife on top of the sharks. Afterwards, you’ll head back to land for lunch, and to watch a video clip of the day’s events over coffee, tea, and biscuits.
