The day at sea:

After breakfast you will depart from Kleinbaai Harbour for a 20 minute boat ride to nearby “Shark Alley” where you find two islands situated next to each other. The motorised catamaran is built especially for shark viewing and cage diving. Once anchored in the channel, we make use of a specially designed, secure, six man steel cage, which floats on the surface, with our divers no more than 1m below the surface.

You do not require any diving certification to do the cage dive. Diving takes place on a rotational basis and on good diving days, it is possible for each diver to take more than one dive. The duration of each dive depends on the diver and the activity of the sharks, but could be up to half an hour per dive.

White sharks are surface feeders, providing brilliant surface viewing for our waiting divers or our non-divers from the comfort of the shark-viewing deck of the boat, where exhilarating photographs and video footage may be captured, at close range.

  • SAMSA (South African Marine Safety Association) - Surveyed annually
