Shark Cage Diving in Cape Town, South Africa:  

Your Experience

Getting into the cage with the sharks around is truly the most breath-taking experience you will ever live to remember.  When feeding actively around the boat, the sharks may occasionally brush their tail against the cage, but NEVER attack the cage. They are very curious though and often come close-up to the cage, taking a closer look at the diver. A personal eye-to-eye encounter with this awesome animal is guaranteed to get the adrenaline going!

Vital Information

A scuba certification is not a necessity to be able to dive in the cage, as we also allow snorkelling. While certified scuba divers dive on scuba, inexperienced divers are able to enjoy the same experience on snorkel. Both methods are equally comfortable and takes place under strict supervision of our Dive Master.

The Weather

This varies with the tides, full moon, wind & weather conditions.  We can only confirm exact time of launch at 15h00 the day before.

What To Wear

Bring your diving card/certificate, warm jacket, peak cap, towel, costume, sun block, comfortable shoes & cameras (we do stock disposable underwater cameras at r150.00). If required, seasick tablets should be taken 2hrs before launch. No diving gear necessary except prescription masks if necessary.  We recommend that you do not overindulge in alcohol the night before as this could make you seasick the next day!

Diving qualification & Procedure

Open water 1 qualification is required in order to go on scuba & experienced, unqualified divers will be able to snorkel in the cage.  Your own safety is our concern.  Surface viewing from the boat is truly spectacular as the great white is a surface feeder.  You do not have to dive to view the great white! As we are dealing with a wild animal all divers will go through the cage on held breath first & then q/d will be able to go on scuba in case the bubbles affect the sharks.

Accommodation

We can arrange accommodation to suit your budget and specific requirements.
Should you wish to make this a complete package we can add flight and hotel accommodation to your stay.

Shark Cage Diving in Cape Town, South Africa: Restrictions

Diving is not always guaranteed since we work 10 km out at sea and only know what the shark activity and sea conditions are like once we arrive at the dive site. We are, however, able to continue with diving 95% of the time. It is also known that during certain seasons we encounter sharks that are very cautious and are therefore easily frightened by sound, such as the sound of scuba breathing equipment. To avoid scaring the sharks off as soon as they arrive at the boat, we often commence the diving on snorkel. Should the sharks become more relaxed and confident with having the divers around, we will then switch to scuba. However, diving on scuba is not guaranteed as it all depends on the types of sharks we encounter on each particular tour. It is obviously better to view sharks from the cage on snorkel, than not to get to see the sharks at all.
