Shark cage diving trip
- Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Gansbaai, Western Cape
- Product code: PUARPW
Our vessel is a 12 metre long and 4 metre wide catamaran which we specifically designed for shark cage diving and viewing.The high season starts around mid February with our best months being March through to September.
You will need at least an Open Water One diving qualification to dive on scuba in the cage. Scuba divers are required to produce their in date dive card. Unqualified divers may breath hold or snorkel in the cage. Your own safety is our concern and surface viewing from the boat is truly spectacular as the Great White is a surface feeder.
The cage is a floating, drifting cage. Four divers enter the cage at any one time. A fifth person can be accommodated, however we prefer to allow the diver comfortable space to move freely. Scuba is available on request and is only given to qualified divers.
Our tours depart twice daily off-season (May-October), and up to three times daily in-season (November-April). The duration of the trip will be approximately 3,5 hours on sea.
What to bring : warm jacket, sun glasses, peaked cap, towel, costume, sun block, comfortable shoes, a change of clothing & cameras (we do stock disposable underwater cameras at reasonable prices). Should you be prone to sea sickness then we recommend that you speak to a pharmacist who can prescribe Sea Sick tablets, which are usually taken 2 hours before the tour. No diving gear necessary except prescription masks if necessary.
We are the passionate pioneers in the industry and stand out miles from our competitors. We take out small groups and depart twice daily for your convenience. We offer silver service and UNLIMITED, quality cage dive time. We offer a full educational on the Great White so that you come away learning about this awesome, apex predator. We do not harm or feed the sharks on our tours. Our motto says it all “We Care, Protect and Educate”.
