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.

    Loved this opportunity provided by white shark project. Gerald and the team were fabulous. Really attentive and looked after everybody all through the trip. Breakfast was lovely and hot shower at the end was excellent 👍. I genuinely could not recommend these guys anymore, with ever penny and to see these majestic beasts up close in total safety was something we will never forget. Thanks again guys and I hope one day to return

    To say I was petrified at the thought of this trip is an understatement !! My Husband when asked "what will make your 50th memorable and special ?" Cage diving with sharks was his answer . So we researched the most ethical and kind way to do this and we booked with these guys . Don't let the 04.15 pick up put you off or the drive if you're staying a little way out . IT WAS ONE OF THE MOST INCREDIBLE THINGS IVE EVER DONE ... The people on our bus were excited but nervous too but the boats crew were amazing . Thorough and safety first the care of these amazing creatures equalled . They were calm and you felt looked after and guided every step of the way . They were experts and answered every question we had . I took a deep breathe and went in with the first group of 5 . I was blown away at the size and grace of these sharks not aggressive as they were brought in with care . An absolute must do even if you're as unsure as me. It will stay in my memory forever even though the endangered white beauty didn't show the copper sharks and rays were stunning . We even saw migrating whales too . Thankyou for the experience of a lifetime for my husband too . #pushyourselfoutyourcomfortzoneandlive

    My family and I had a great experience. The staff were very helpful and went above and beyond answering questions and sorting out a dive time that would work (we were traveling from Cape Town on the same day). Mary was very knowledgeable and they care a lot about the great creatures in our sea's! My sister decided not to shark dive and staff helped book her onto a nearby whale watching trip. The meals before and after are also a lovely addition. 10/10 recommend.

    Oh my word! This experience was amazing. I never thought I would ever do this but Jessica, Mary and the team were wonderful. My daughter (14), my son (10) and myself did the shark cage diving. We loved it!!! It was a beautiful experience seeing the sharks up close - they are quite gorgeous. Most important was being given insight into these creatures that are critically endangered- they need to be protected. Amazing family experience

    I cannot rate White Shark Projects highly enough, what a truly fabulous experience! Friendly and professional crew on the boat who had everything I needed for the dive - wetsuits, boots, food and drinks, towels and blankets. Included a short talk on the sharks we could see and the view were realistic about our chances of seeing Great Whites. Marine biologist on board who answered all my questions, and a videographer capturing the trip above and below the water. Excellent service, and delicious hot soup on return to land after a 2.5 hour cage dive. A truly fantastic experience to view beautiful sharks with such a fantastic team geared towards educational and conservation!
