This holiday package is the perfect combination between the two ultimate shark cage diving and breaching hotspots in Cape Town and surrounds. The package combines the awesome Air Jaws flying sharks at Seal Island in False Bay with Gansbaai the best shark cage diving destination in the world. Why choose one or the other? With this package you can see both fantastic Great White Shark hunting grounds in the same week!
Day 1: Transfer from Cape Town or Cape Town International Airport to Simons Town
You will be met at the Airport or Cape Town and transferred through to Simons Town to your accommodation. You will spend the rest of the day at your leisure in Simons Town and if you have time you can visit the Boulders Beach penguin colony (best time to visit is late afternoon).
Day 2 & 3: Great White Shark Breaching & Hunting Trips
Meet the crew at approximately 6:15 on the pier and then we will set off after the briefing to Seal Island in search for the Great White Sharks. The ride to the Island takes approximately 20 minutes and when on site we will be actively looking for signs of hunting behaviour. This could be large splashes from the seals trying to out maneuver the sharks or birds flocking around the water over a kill. The crew are well trained to find the action. The next 45 minutes will be spent looking for Great White sharks predating on seals and then when the sun has risen we will tow a fake seal behind the boat. The fake seal is designed to splash around clumsily behind the boat to draw attention from below and hopefully we will be able to provoke a Great White Shark into a Predation and to launch out of the water behind the boat with seal in mouth. This predation is called a breach and although over just a split second it is a spectacular site to see these huge apex predators completely airborne.
At around 9am the boat will anchor at Seal Island and the crew will start to chum the water for sharks. It normally does not take long for the sharks to appear and when they do the cage is lowered into the water and divers will kit up. The next 2-3 hours will then be spent interacting with the Great White Sharks from the boat and cage.
The boat will return at approximately 13:30 and then you will have time to explore the area or just relax following your dive.
On day 3 following your Breaching trip we will pick you up at your accommodation and transfer you through to Gansbaai to start your Great White Shark Cage Diving experience at Shark Alley. The drive will take approximately 3 hours to Gansbaai but the drive is stunning and Gansbaai is a truly stunning place to be. We will check you into the Roundhouse and then you can enjoy the evening in the rooftop Jacuzzi before visiting one of the stunning local restaurants.
Day 4 & 5: Great White Shark Cage Diving
Wake up in paradise in the most densely populated area in the world for Great White Sharks! We will head down early to the crew house where breakfast will be enjoyed before the safety briefing. Our winter months are normally excellent in Gansbaai with warmer waters and better visibility and you should be in for a real treat with extremely close Great White shark interactions and lots of great photographic opportunities. The trip will last approximately 2 1/2 – 3 hours and then you will return to the Roundhouse to freshen up before exploring the local hiking trails along the best land based Whale watching trails in the world (July – December). Transfers to restaurants and into Gansbaai town are free and there will always be someone around to assist you should you need to go anywhere.
Day 6 & 7: Free days
We have kept the 6th day as a free day just in case the weather was bad for any of your tours and on the 7th day you can even get out early morning should you need to catch up on dives or do extra dives if you have been addicted to seeing the sharks (I know I have!). On Day 7 we will transfer you after breakfast or after your shark dive through to Cape Town or the Airport
