What you can expect

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.
