The Cage

The cage is a 4 man galvanised steel cage which is tied to the side of the boat with rope.

White Shark Diving Trip

Meeting is at the Shark Lady Adventures crew house just up from the Harbour in Kleinbaai. Here you will enjoy breakfast and receiving the briefing of the day before the short walk down to the boat. The ride to Shark Alley is approx 20 minutes where the Shark Cage will be dropped into the water and attached to the side of the boat. The experienced crew start fo chum the water to attract the White Sharks which are int he winter months at the Island looking for seals their staple diet. The bait consists of natural marine products such as fish oil and tuna. During the wait for the sharks to arrive you will kit up into the wetsuits.

Depending on currents and weather we may have to wait for some time but normally it does not take long to see our first sharks. Once the sharks have arrived the divers will enter the cage. The dive master on the boat will be above the cage at all times so should you wish to get out then this is quick and easy. There is a top deck on the boat as with all of the shark diving boats allowing for excellent boat-based viewing.
