Owner description: For a memorable and unique Cape Town adventure, nothing can be more exhilarating than a cage diving and surface viewing tour to meet the mighty great white shark. One of the few places in the world where white sharks can be observed regularly at any time of the year, Gansbaai is known as the shark diving capital of the world. The watery habitat of the apex predator is not glamorous and this tour is highly weather dependent - this is mother nature at her most temperamental and raw; only when you see your first flash of steely grey sliding purposefully towards the boat, will you understand the magnetic beauty of the great white shark. Indescribable. No previous diving experience is necessary to enter the cage and everything you will need to fully enjoy the tour is provided, from your meals, to your dive equipment and even the convenient and comfy shuttle that Shark Zone can provide to get you there. As Cape Town's #1 booking agent for great white shark tours, Shark Zone will make sure you get the best deal, hassle-free!

My husband had a shark cage dive booked with another operator in Hermanus who had to cancel due to bad weather in Cape Town. Luckily our hotel manager knew of Shark zone and was able to get my hubby on a trip this morning out of False Bay. Turns out it was a huge blessing In disguise as False Bay... More

The hotel recommended I contact Shark Zone. These guys were just great, they go from Simon's Town out to Seal Island in False Bay, this is slightly more... More

Greedy captain will take you to sea no matter the weather conditions. When I had this unfortunate experience, 5 out 9 people (who are too many for the boat, anyway) were sea sick. It was the worst hour and a half of my whole life.

This is totally incorrect: Our captain whom works for a salary is certainly not a greedy person and his salary does not change if the boat does not go to sea. I have been involved in this industry for more than 15 years and will NEVER go to sea in adverse sea conditions. Safety is of paramount importance to us... More

Stephen and Tracy just blew us away!! They took us to a better place to experience not only a shark dive, but we also got to see a shark fully breach the water. They then took us for a full tour of Cape Point and, unfortunately, a friend wasn't feeling well, so they took us to a doctor and Tracy... More

You cannot come to Cape Town and not contact Shark Zone. This is without a doubt the best and most professional company. From start to finish we were taken care of and felt like celebrities. No where on earth will you ever find a better experience. If you want to dive with the great whites and experience nature in its... More
