Shark Cage Diving with RETURN Transfer from Cape Town

Gansbaai

Activity Description

All trips are weather and tide dependant and launch times may vary accordingly from those stated. Your launch time will be confirmed the day before.

Unlike bungee jumping or sky diving, the adrenaline rush from shark cage diving comes from being face to face with one of the world’s greatest predators: the Great White Shark.

The experience puts you in their territory while the safety of the activity allows you to be an observer and learn what Great White Sharks are really like. An on board marine biologist will educate you about this amazing apex predator.

Shark Cage Diving is safe for children and elders and gives the whole family a wonderful opportunity to bond in a fun environment surrounded by experts and researchers.

After this once in a life time experience, you’ll find yourself buzzing with excitement and adrenaline. You will have had the opportunity to come up close and personal with one of the oceans most majestic and foreboding creatures.

Here is a brief breakdown of what to expect once you arrive:
• Before the trip guests meet at THE GREAT WHITE HOUSE in Kleinbaai
• You will receive breakfast or lunch and register your wetsuit size
• Guests receive a pre-trip safety briefing about what to expect during the trip and a biological background on great white sharks
• We then take a 200m stroll down to the harbour to board Slashfin
• Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes, with the shallows being a short 10 minute ride (where we anchor depends on where the sharks are)
• On average, we anchor for 2 hours, but this depends on shark activity, conditions, as well as number of divers
• Weather permitting, we take a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley
• Lastly, a debrief in the Great White House and a celebratory beverage to toast the occasion!

Why We Are Different:
• A dedicated marine biologist on board every trip
• Our Boat (Slashfin) is the largest in the industry (most deck space per customer) and was purposely built for shark cage diving and includes two restrooms, and an upper deck for the ultimate viewing and photography experience when not in the cage.
• A fully licensed Restaurant and Crew House, aptly named the GREAT WHITE HOUSE, which includes facilities such as: 2 marine rooms where professional safety and informative briefings are given before each trip + separate ladies/gents/handicap restroom facilities with a 5-star rating + curio shop
• We guarantee clean, dry wetsuits (a rarity in the industry)
• Our crew receives as many compliments as the Great White Sharks, with more combined experience than any other Shark Cage Diving crew.
• You will leave with great memories and a deep appreciation of this majestic animal.

Customer Reviews

We had a fantastic time on the great white trip. At first the sharks weren't showing up, and we were nervous we wouldn't see any, but our crew changed locations and stayed around long enough so that all groups got good encounters with the sharks. - Travis Guy


This was such an amazing, very well organised, professional, exciting and informative trip! Excellent staff and warm welcomes, looked after and briefed very well, great boat, safe cages, well executed and extremely fun! Managed to see 7 different Great White sharks, they were not goaded to come towards the cage or be harmed in any way, they were well respected in their own territory. - Calley McClure


Awesome experience, was a bucket list item for myself. The crew at Marine Dynamics where exceptional, very professional and friendly. The whole day was well run from the pick up in Cape Town, to lunch and the briefing, to the dive and the drop off back at the hotel. The white house facilities where top notch as well, nothing like a beer after coming eye ball to eye ball with a great white! - Michael Saunders


I had an amazing experience Cage Diving with Marine Dynamics! From the moment they picked me up to getting in the water then getting dropped back off, everything about that day was amazing! I was a solo traveler but the staff (and volunteers) do a great job of making you feel comfortable and ready for the day! The whole experience was truly a day to remember! - Clarissa Crandall


The trip was amazing, the staff was a ton of fun and professional. We were lucky and saw 4 sharks that day which was incredible. If we lived closer I would go shark diving with Marine Dynamics every weekend. - Chris Martino
