Shark cage diving is both exhilarating and oddly peaceful – depending on who you ask. However, it’s undeniably a bonding experience for nature lovers and thrill-seekers alike. There are a range of good reasons to add it to your bucket list but mostly because planning a diving weekend is a fantastic way to take an ordinary vacation and turn it into something far more memorable.
It’s a 4-Step Process
Luckily, planning your trip is a relatively easy and exciting affair with Shark Bookings. Follow a few easy steps and start creating the adventure of a lifetime:
1. Pick a package – If you’re planning to make a trip of it, a package deal makes sense. The duration of these packages ranges from 1 to 4 nights, depending on which trip you opt in for. The 1 night packages include all the basics from gear to accommodation and 2 trips out to see the sharks. The first of these is usually quite an intense day, while the second is more peaceful as you’re more aware of what to expect. You can opt in for extras like a DVD, transfers and meals should you choose, or take the self-catering route. The 4-night packages include 3 dives and an idyllic stay in Gansbaai, where you can enjoy whale watching, hiking and relaxing in the jacuzzi in-between dives. These packages are also good in the winter months when the weather may prevent you from being able to go out on certain days.
2. Decide whether you would like a budget, standard, luxury or executive stay. Regardless of which option you choose, each room will offer you varying degrees of comfort, as well as an en-suite bathroom, TV and access to the rooftop jacuzzi. Naturally, an executive stay is the most comfortable – and will allow you to experience true luxury when you’re not in the ocean having shark encounters.
3. Plan your Car Hire. We can help you arrange car hire for your trip so that you’re able to get around in-between dives and make the most of your vacation.
4. Ready your camera, and enjoy the experience of a lifetime. Shark cage diving is a genuinely life-changing experience. It allows even the bravest of underwater adventurers a rare opportunity to get within meters of these majestic animals – an often humbling experience.
Overall, it’s much more enjoyable to have a vacation with a purpose that allows you to experience something incredible, while still having the opportunity to rest and relax in style – or explore the surrounding areas. What are you waiting for? Plan your shark cage diving trip today.
