Gansbaai Shark Cage Diving Info
The 10-hour program starts off with a transfer from your Cape Town hotel or accommodation to Gansbaai. The 160-kilometer drive will take you past picturesque scenery with mountains on one side and the sea on the other.
Your dive will take place near Dyer Island, just off the coast of Gansbaai. Dyer Island is home to the largest seal colony in Southern Africa, with about 60 000 seals settling there. This is also the main food source for the sharks.
The channel between Dyer and Gansbaai is called Shark Alley, is this is where the diving will happen. The sharks are surface feeders, therefore this is a surface dive, meaning no scuba certifications are needed.
This package includes transfers to and from Gansbaai to your hotel or accommodation, breakfast, lunch, 3-5 hours at sea, snacks on the boat, use of all equipment, an 8-man cage, several opportunities to dive, and a guaranteed small group (max. 24 people).
