Cage Diving with Great White Sharks from Cape Town
- Breakfast included
- Close encounter with wildlife
- Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
- Free snacks included
- Informative, friendly and professional guide
On arrival in Gansbaai, your driver will drop you off to enjoy breakfast (or lunch if your tour start time is delayed due to bad weather) at the shark-diving center, known as the Great White House. During this time, you'll meet the expert guides who are leading you on your adventure and be fitted for your diving gear.
Board the specialized diving boat and enjoy an exhilarating 20-minute boat ride to Dyer Island. Your captain will stop in the optimal spot, and then the onboard team will tempt the great whites to the boat with bait so you’ll get a fantastic view of the sharks before heading into the shark-diving cage. The boat will stay anchored for approximately two hours, depending on the shark activity.
Your cage is attached to the boat and will stay just a few feet/meters below the water’s surface during your dive, which means it’s quick and easy to get out of the water as soon as you want. If you don't want to get into the cage at all, you’ll still have awesome views of the sharks as they swim around the boat. Keep your eyes peeled for more of the animals known as the ‘marine big five’: sharks, dolphins, whales, seals and penguins.
While you’re on board the boat, hydrate and refuel with the included drinks and snacks. Once back on shore, enjoy a light refreshment at the Great White House, where you can purchase a professional video of your once-in-a-lifetime experience, if you wish.

Viator is a facilitator website - the actual shark adventure was through a local operator. But it was really well organized, great communication between the two companies so Marine Dynamics had us squared away! Fun trip! Sharks are magnificent - and better than on whats presented on TV. Great equipment, marine biologist on board was a great asset, very professional staff. Everyone stayed in the water with the sharks far longer than I expected, AND WE SAW A TONE OF HUGE SHARKS.

The trip was well organized and the Team does really their job, they do what they promise; nobody can walk away without seeing any shark. They are also prepared for situations; like if you are hungry, they have refreshments for you (eg. hot chock, sandwiches, chips and soft drinks), they treat you if you have sea-sick, etc. Full attention. The cruise to the deepwater (next to Dyer Island) is also scenic and if you like speed and adventure, sit into the front of the boat. Waiting for the different shark species in the Ocean is also a worthwhile and as a lot of the reviewers told; a lifetime experience.
The soup was also more than all right at the end in Great White House.
