    Trip Summary

    Should you be staying in Cape Town and are not driving to Gansbaai your shuttle will collect you from your hotel early in the morning. After an approximate 2 and a half hour ride you’ll arrive in Gansbaai at the shark diving crew house. Breakfast will be served at the crew house where you will be briefed on your trip.

    Following breakfast take a short walk down to Kleinbaai harbour where all eight shark diving boats are based. During the winter months the boats will take a 15 minute ride out to Shark Alley and in summer time will go just off the beach where a suitable spot to anchor will be found.

    Once anchored the crew will immediately start to chum the water with fish based products, like tuna and fish oil to attract the sharks. With the chum in the water all you can do now is wait for the first shark to arrive and hopefully this happens quickly. When the first shark is in sight the divers will kit up and get in the cage where they will be up close and personal with this fierce animal. It’s around this time when you will get a chance to get into the cage and share the waters with this extreme predator but there’s no pressure and if you wish to remain on the boat and not get into the cage you are welcome to do so. For those who don’t want to cage dive then viewing the sharks from the boat is exceptional and sometimes even better than in the cage.

    After this amazing experience we will pass through the famous Shark Alley (In Season) where a colony of 60, 000 seals can be seen at Geyser Rock. Back at the crew house we will watch the video footage of the day and enjoy tea or coffee.

    • 14 Years Experience
      Shark Diving Cape Town
      We have been in the industry since the beginning of commercial Shark Cage Diving. We have been working in the industry since there were only 3 boats out there taking just a handful of clients. We have grown with the industry and still have the same passion for the sharks as we did 14 years ago.
    • Flexibility for you!
      We are flexible with your booking and should the boat cancel that you are booked on for any reason we will move you to another boat. Should the trips in Gansbaai be cancelled we will try to get you out at our other 2 destinations False Bay or Mossel Bay. We are in contact with all of the boats in all destinations and keep a good eye on the weather. We will not just cancel you and not give you an option but will do our best to get you out for your once in a lifetime experience!

Fortunately we only get maximum 2-3 days a year when we do not see a Great White shark on a trip but please plan 1-2 days after your booked trip to go again for another day go should you be unlucky on the day.

      Old Shark Boat

      Old Shark Cage

      My first experience was as a tourist on one of the boats. The boat was an old rickety wooden boat and I sat on the roof rolling around on the ocean watching the sharks circling me. The cage was a small circular cage with very thin bars and the sharks past extremely close and one of them even put their nose in the cage. The experience was not the safest those days but it changed my life and I decided to pursue my passion for sharks and tourism. I fell in love with the sharks and Gansbaai and have been dedicated ever since to give people the quality and memorable experience that changed my life! Fortunately things have evolved substantially since those days 14 years ago and the shark diving practice is highly regulated and very safe now. The sharks are still the same however and are always curious of divers in the cage even though you are never in danger you may also experience the shark poking his / her nose into the cage :-)

    • On-Site Offices

      Shark Alley

      Great White Adventure Centre

      We have 2 Offices. One is in Kleinbaai harbour overlooking all of the boats and the other is our main booking office in Gansbaai. We monitor all the boats daily and know when they launch and return as well as how many sharks they are seeing and the conditions at sea. We are in the know about who is doing what, and where and have the general knowledge to give you a trip to match your expectations. Should the boat you are booked on cancel due to the weather, mechanical or other issues then we will make sure we get you on another boat even at late notice. You can also call us if you have been let down by someone else and are desperate to go out as we are in contact with all of the boats.

      We will never cancel your trip without giving you all of the options and the best possible chance to get out to sea. Should the weather not be looking good for your booked day then we will contact you in advance and give you the option of moving your trip to another more suitable boat or another day when the weather is looking better. Your experience is the most important to us and we will do everything possible to give you a memorable day out.

    Mat Spencer

    Everything was fantastic from the Dive to the Stay at the Roundhouse. What an amazing place!! We had 8 sharks on the trip and saw plenty of Whales close to the Guesthouse. We were so glad that we decided to stay overnight the night before as this made the dive more enjoyable and we would not have seen this amazing place!
