Half-Day White Shark Cage Diving from Gansbaai
From US$144.86
Overview
Take a thrilling half-day great white shark cage diving trip from Gansbaai for a truly unforgettable South Africa adventure. Enjoy the professional services and extensive knowledge of the guides for 20-minute cage dives in the water up close to the enormous sharks.
What to Expect
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.
