Know More about this tour

The main focus of your tour is a natural interaction with the sharks and every effort is made to treat these animals with the respect they deserve.

Guests are welcomed from 6.30 am with a healthy continental breakfast and a full safety and weather briefing is given before departure.
Departing at 7.30am, you'll embark on a 15-25 minute boar tide. Here the skipper of the day gives a short lecture on the Great White Shark. He explains how you'll work with the sharks in the area. We spend 2 to 4 hours at sea, depending on how often the sharks visit the boat. Be sure to ask as many questions as you can think up!

Diving and viewing your cage takes 5 people at a time. Each person spends about 20 minutes in the cage. All diving equipment, including 7mm wetsuits, is provided – you don’t need any experience

Picnic lunch on board our lunch boxes are packed with bread rolls (with a variety of fillings), sweets, crisps and assorted juices and soft drinks.

Afternoon tea on your return to dry land (around 11am), you're invited to join the crew for some home-made vegetable soup.

    Once in a lifetime experience! My youngest, who is 9, also loved the experience!!!

    This was horrible- long and far from Cape Town, poor communication, and no one told us that the Great White are no longer coming around the waters they cruise. They did not even put the cage in the water and only 2 sharks came and went. NOT worth the money or the time. The only saving grace was the scenery down to the dock.
