Great White Shark Diving
Great white shark cage diving is an experience like no other. To get up close to the ocean's number one predator in its natural environment is a humbling experience you will never forget.
The boat leaves the harbour mid-morning after a safety briefing and an explanation of the day's itinerary. Once you are about 5 miles out to sea, the crew will drop anchor and make final preparations before the sharks arrive. The Great White Shark is the world's largest predatory fish. Hugely powerful, they are able to propel their bodies, up to 6 metres in length and weighing close to a tonne, clear of the water.
A chum is prepared and poured into the water. This chum, each skipper has his own secret recipe, is irresistible to a Great White Shark and attracts the sharks to come and investigate. Shark Alley is so well populated by sharks that the operators are able to almost guarantee fantastic sightings of the magnificent creatures. Stay alert and you may be lucky enough to witness the shark's natural predation of Cape Fur Seals.
Please note if you would like to do this excursion from Cape Town there will be a very early start to give time to transfer to Gansbaai where the boat will leave from.
