Climb into a impenetrable floating cage and feel the adrenaline pump...

Climb into a impenetrable floating cage and feel the adrenaline pump through your veins as a shark swims towards you, opens its mouth and bares its big sharp teeth. The three main regions in South Africa that offer shark diving are Simon's Town near Cape Town, Gansbaai and Mossel Bay. Our shark diving trips operate in all three regions. Most people have a 90% fear level and 10% respect level. Yet, why not try changing those misconceptions and learn the truth about sharks in the best possible way. After diving with us, people that initially had put this experience off for a long time, came away saying that this was the best experience of their lives.

This is probably the closest you can ever get with a great white shark and still have all your bodily parts intact. The shark dive team was very helpful. They were there to assist you in every way to ensure your safety and to make sure you can see a shark. If you are prone to motion sickness, make sure... More

An experience which one must have when one is in Cape. Would suggest that you take the first trip that leaves in the morning to have a really good experience. Boats are small and hence sway excessively. Those prone to sea sickness take care to see that you have taken your medicines. Very exiting and a great experience to come... More
