Jump in the water for a personal encounter with one of Mother Nature's most formidable beasts as you face down a great white shark. With expert instruction and from the security of a cage, safely swim just feet away from an intimidating predator in one of the world's top-rated shark dive sites.

Toward the southernmost tip of Africa is Gansbaai, known around the world for its infamously shark-infested waters. Board your vessel and cruise out into the bay while your professional team selects the best spot to drop anchor. As they lower the cage and lay the trail of bait, receive the all-important safety briefing.

When you're ready, it's time to lower yourself into the water and confront the razor-toothed animal. Float in the cage, watching the awesome sight of sharks emerging from the gloom, coming close and even glancing off the bars of the cage.

In your time spent on deck you can enjoy the diversity of other marine life that resides in the area. A large colony of fur seals basks nearby and many species of birds flap overhead, including gannets, petrels and cormorants.

don’t expect to see any great white sharks. Did see one other type of shark. Took about 30 min for the shark to arrive. The water is really choppy so expect to get extremely sea sick...but the staff on boat was extremely helpful

Everything was great. We were picked up at our hotel and our driver/guide, James, is second to none! The experience on the boat was great. The adrenaline rush together with the wet suits kept our minds off the cold water. The crew was great in trying to get everyone a good experience in the cage.
