Shark Diving and Helicopter Combo Trip
Take a lovely scenic helicopter flight along the beautiful coastline from the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town to Gansbaai and view whales, dolphins and great white sharks on this flight. On this beautiful scenic flight you’ll also see beautiful beaches, the Overberg mountains and the gorgeous town of Hermanus.
The flight takes 30 minutes and on arrival in Gansbaai you will be met by the shark diving company representatives who will take you to the shark diving crew house. Breakfast will then be served and you will receive your briefing on the day ahead.
Following breakfast we will walk down to the harbour and then board the boat for Shark Alley where your shark diving adventure will take place. The boat ride out to Dyer Island takes approximately 15 minutes, during the winter months, or during the summer months we will go just off the beach. When we find a suitable spot to anchor the crew will start chumming for sharks and then we must wait for the sharks to arrive.
After hours of shark cage diving fun we’ll return to the crew house for tea or coffee and watch the video of the day.
The Standard Helicopter takes up to 3 people and is divided by the number of people who are booked. Price includes the Shark Cage Diving
*For larger groups we can arrange a larger helicopter that can take up to 5 passengers.

To hire the Helicopter combined with the Shark Cage Diving was a dream! We flew from Cape Town international and covered parts of Cape Town on the way to Gansbaai. Along the way we spotted many Southern Right Whales and calves along the shoreline and even spotted 3 Great White Sharks cruising near the beaches. The cage diving was simply amazing with many sharks coming within inches from the cage. I will never forget this MUST DO experience!
