We were so lucky because we had summer weather in the middle of winter. The sea was flat as a mill pond and the sharks were relaxed and happy to swim close to the cage.

Great opportunity to see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat. Boat and crew were excellent. Everyone made you feel at home and catered to the guests needs. Definitely a not to be missed opportunity when in Capetown.

If you want to cage dive to see (hopefully) Great White sharks, only do it with Marine Dynamics. Why? They are a research team, you are hosted by a marine biologist. They don't interfere with the sharks, they have a big comfortable purpose built boat,...More

We took the boat from Hout Bay. Plenty of seals. It only takes an hour to complete. Good idea to see the township nearby to get an idea of the local living standard while you’re there.

Best to ask Marine Dynamics about how many they are seeing. We did good in September. However, earlier that year the Whites were attacked by Orcas and for a while they left the area.
