SHARK CAGE DIVING

Great White Sharks
The Dyer Island Group, a few km south of Gansbaai, is home to about 50´000 cape fur seals. skip

Equivalent number of African penguins and uncountable other sea-birds. No wonder, hundreds of Great White Sharks have decided that this is where they belong as well. From Kleinbaai, a small natural harbour on Dangerpoint Peninsula, boats leave every morning to take travellers out to show them the Great White Sharks.

A typical white shark diving excursion takes between 3-5 hours, depending on the weather, sea conditions and shark behaviour. Trips depart from Kleinbaai harbour and anchor site depends on the sea conditions, weather and previous shark sightings. There is the option of surface viewing or entering the water in a secure cage. Those wishing to cage dive do not have to be scuba qualified.

The specially designed shark diving cage is very secure, and floats with part of the cage out of the water. Divers are never more than one meter below the surface and air is supplied from a cylinder on the boat so no bulky scuba equipment is needed. All of the necessary diving equipment is supplied, and all shark diving operators have to comply with strict safety rules set out by the South African government.

The best time of year to view great white sharks is from June to September. During this time 4 or 5 sharks are usually encountered in a day, but as many as 18 have been seen. This high season corresponds with the South African winter, and winter storms can prevent boats from launching so schedule a few additional days into your itinerary.
