Enjoy a great white shark cage diving excursion in Gaansbaai, including a light breakfast and a light lunch. Relax and enjoy scenic views along the way, with hotel pickup and drop-off in central Cape Town.

The tour'starts in the early morning with a shuttle from your accommodation in Cape Town, to Kleinbaai Harbor. The harbor is situated only 2km from the village of Gansbaai, and offers the perfect spot from which to launch.

After enjoying a continental breakfast, board the shark-chaser, Apex Predator for the 5 mile boat ride to Dyer Island, or another suitable anchor spot. The round trip for the shark cage diving takes between 3 to 4 hours.

As soon as the boat is safely anchored, the deck crew begin attracting the great white sharks by using a specially-formulated chum mixture, which has taken years to master and is a highly-guarded trade secret. Sharks in the area quickly pick up the scent of the chum, and within a short space of time, conditions are perfect for a memorable encounter. You will also have the opportunity to photograph these awe-inspiring animals feeding at the surface alongside the boat, almost within touching distance.
