FALSE BAY SHARK DIVING
Embark upon an exhilarating journey – cage diving with Great White Sharks!
The protocol for this exciting trip is:
Divers assemble at the meeting point False Bay and then we all make our way down to Simons Town Pier. After a safety briefing, we will leave for Seal Island. Once the crew has anchored up, and begun to chum for the Great Whites, the anticipatory wait begin for them to arrive at the party. Once the first shark has been sighted, the first lot of divers will enter the cage – rotating with others every so often. If you don’t feel like getting in the water – that’s fine! You will still have an excellent chance of viewing the sharks from aboard the comfort of the boat.
Bearing witness to a Great White Shark hunt and a natural predation is one of the most exhilarating experiences in South Africa. So here’s to hoping that you’re lucky on the day!
Please note that this is just a rough guideline; the times are confirmed the day before the dive.
