*Winter Special* 

We are currently offering a Gansbaai winter special at ZAR1 450 per person, book soon limited availability. 

Gansbaai Shark Diving

Join us on a world-class experience to dive with the Great White Sharks in Gansbaai. This is the top destination in South Africa for viewing Great White Sharks close to shore all year round. Whether you want to cage dive or just view the sharks from the boat you will come away with a memorable experience of these beautiful predators. There have been a lot of changes with the environment in the last 2 years and now our Great White Sharks are back with also the added bonus of also seeing the beautiful Bronze Whaler or Copper Sharks at the boat as well as the odd huge Stingray with a 2 meter wingspan coming up from the bottom to have a sneaky bite of the bait.

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 trip, 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.

For those who have their own transport, it is suggested that you stay over in Gansbaai to save the long drive on the day to your tour. We have a guesthouse in Gansbaai and can accommodate you or help you book in any other accommodation options. Following breakfast at the crew house, 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.

Gansbaai Shark Diving

Join us on a world-class experience to dive with the Great White Sharks in Gansbaai. This is the top destination in South Africa for viewing Great White Sharks close to shore all year round. Whether you want to cage dive or just view the sharks from the boat you will come away with a memorable experience of these beautiful predators. There have been a lot of changes with the environment in the last 2 years and now our Great White Sharks are back with also the added bonus of also seeing the beautiful Bronze Whaler or Copper Sharks at the boat as well as the odd huge Stingray with a 2 meter wingspan coming up from the bottom to have a sneaky bite of the bait.

White Shark Cage Diving

Following breakfast at the crew house, 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.

 

Large Boat Upgrade*

If you want to spend longer at sea and more chance to dive with the sharks then please choose the Large Boat Upgrade. This is on one of the 2 large boats in the fleet which gives you the opportunity to spend longer at sea than the smaller boats and the possibility of 2 or maybe even 3 cage dives. This is R600 per person more than the standard tour and gives you approximately an extra hour at sea.

Amazing trips, done 2 afternoon dives, and one morning trip, Chanya done everything possible to make these trips happen as weather was rough for my first couple of days, so was booked out of False Bay, instead of Gansbaai, cant wait to come back and will be using Sharkbookings to organise my trips,Fantastic!

Vivian Lacheze
It was great to be on board this day!! This was an amazing experience and I will never forget it. Thanks again for the pictures I loved to see the sharks again!!! Regards from Brasil!

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!

Tim
Best experience ever. Worth every penny!!!

Brian Middleton
Simply the best experience in the world!!
