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.
Your experience concludes inside the Great White House, or, if you've upgraded, with a drop-off at your hotel in Cape Town.

Everything about this trip was amazing. It was conducted by Marine Dynamics and they were incredible. Everything was organized. Our driver was great. We were picked up from a local Cape Town hotel and he made our trip enjoyable. He even dropped us off at the wharf instead of our hotel per our request. We were greeted with a nice meal. The marine biologist Stephanie was very knowledgable. She answered all our questions and guided us so we had the best experience with the sharks possible. They have hot chocolate/tea and fresh towels ready when you get out of the water. We saw 14 great white sharks and they were clearly visible even from the boat deck. The boat was clean and had plenty of room - two stories so you can spread out and snap plenty of pics. We returned to heaters the water is quite cold, warm soup and great service. Dress warm even if it is a sunny day - it's windy away from the shore and the water is quite cold. Highly recommend this trip. It was incredible!
