Gansbaai All year None


Limited space available!


Shark Zone are running exclusive Pre-Season Specials on shark diving trips in Gansbaai. For only R1650 you can embark upon an exhilarating journey – a day spent cage diving with Great White Sharks!

Please note, that this special is only available for ONLINE bookings.

With the Dyer Island Group nearby, and home to 50 000 cape fur seals, it is the world’s capital for Great White sharks. Boasting the largest population of these majestic creatures year-round, shark cage diving and shark viewing trips are a must!

The protocol for this exciting trip is the same as always:

Shark Zone’s transport service will personally collect you from where you’re staying in Cape Town, or you must make your own way if you have selected the self-drive option (R1650 per person special), and slowly make your way to the meeting point in Gansbaai.

Upon arrival in Gansbaai, you will be served a delectable breakfast whilst you listen to the all-important safety briefing. After eating, you will be taken on a short walk to the Kleinbaai Harbour, just 3 minutes away, to board the boat.

Once the boat has anchored, the crew will immediately begin to chum the water with products such as tuna and fish out to attract the Great Whites. When the first shark has been sighted, kit up, slip into the cage and get ready to be captivated, and experience the magnificence of these animals up close and personal. For those who aren’t into cage diving, the sharks can also be viewed from the boat, and this is often just a good, or even a better viewpoint.

You will also be treated to drinks and snacks on board to keep the hunger pangs away and allow you to focus your full attention of the Great Whites.

You will then return to harbour and the meeting place and enjoy a light lunch whilst watching the DVD of the day.

Each Gansbaai shark diving trip lasts around 4 hours, and during this time you’ll have the change to come face-to-face with these breath-taking creatures.

Please do note, however, that this itinerary is a rough guideline, and the times will only be confirmed the day before the dive. On busy days there will be two or three trips, weather dependent. These trips usually run at 7am, 11am and 1pm (meeting time in Gansbaai).
