Payment for the cage diving is due on arrival in Gansbaai. This includes a continental breakfast, a comprehensive instruction session on how to cage dive safely, use of the diving equipment, a 3 hour boat trip plus snacks on the boat. You should be able to spot sharks and a host of other sea life from the submerged cage in their natural habitat (unfortunately no guarantees as you are dealing with nature!)
Please take into account that there are times when the sea is too rough for the boat to go out. In this event, you can choose from various other options to replace the boat trip.
Cost of the cage dive = R2200 per person (credit cards accepted).

Duration: 4 hours

Location: Marine Dynamics, Kleinbaai, Overstrand, Overberg District, Western Cape

After the boat trip, choose one of three activities to enjoy on the way back to Cape Town. Walk the cliffs of Hermanus, wine taste in the Overberg or visit the penguin colony at Stoney Point. Whatever you pick, your guide will drive you back to your hotel/accommodation via the beautiful coastal route through Kleinmond, Bettys Bay, Rooi Els and Gordons bay.

    To see sharks in their natural environment. Luck of the draw. Changing into wet suits on a rocking boat and
    in the open is not ok for everyone. Preference would be to suit up before boarding. Crew were great.
