Due to various geographical reasons, water temperatures, depth and easy access to food, this area has earned worldwide fame and recognition as the single most successful area to view the great white shark within a very short period of time.

Getting into the cage with the sharks around, is truly the most breath-taking experience you will ever live to remember.  When feeding actively around the boat, the sharks may occasionally brush their tail against the cage, but NEVER attack the cage.  They are very curious though and  often come close-up to the cage, taking a closer look at the diver.

A scuba certification is not a necessity in order to dive in the cage, as we make use of snorkeling equipment 90% of the time, where the dive takes place just beneath the water surface.  This makes it possible for even the inexperienced diver to enjoy a cage dive.

Diving takes place under strict supervision of our qualified Dive Master who makes use of a quick and effective rotational system with 4 to 5 divers down at a time. Once the rotation is completed it will be repeated, therefore ensuring that each diver can take as many dives as possible. Time spent in the cage depends on weather/water conditions, shark activity and eagerness of each diver.  The Dive Master will ensure you have had a fair chance at viewing the sharks before asking the next group to enter the cage.  We rarely have more than 18 divers on board at a time, ensuring maximum cage diving time for all divers.  Our cage is situated next to the side of the boat and once ready to take the dive, our Dive Master would assist the diver into the opening at the top of the cage. Once in position, the divers head would be no more than half a meter below the surface. A free-board of approx. 30cm allows the diver to rise to the surface and effectively communicate with the Dive Master on the boat. Divers would secure themselves by holding onto the convenient cross bars, situated at the top of the cage

Please note that diving is not always guaranteed since we work 10 km out at sea and only know what the shark activity and sea conditions are like once we arrive at the dive site. We are, however, able to continue with diving 95% of the time.

Sharks are surface feeders by nature, ensuring spectacular surface action which often takes place “too close for comfort”! Surface viewers therefore take the pound seat on our specially designed observation platform, with camera’s close at hand.

From the safety of the boat, you are able to photograph your friend/s in the cage and at the same time follow the sharks as they move around the boat and cage. Be careful not to miss out on good photographs. Breaching often takes place in the high season and if you are not 100% ready, you may miss out on a good picture.

With a fairly high success rate, sharks are sighted on most of our tours all year round. However, they do remain wild animals and sightings cannot be guaranteed. We therefore do not offer any refunds when sharks are not sighted, but you will qualify for a voucher offering a second shark dive, free of charge. Transfers are separate and payable in full. 

We are the only boat in the shark diving industry with specially designed motors which lift completely out of the water, ensuring that the propellers do not harm the sharks in any way. Our boat, cage and life-raft are inspected on an annual basis, ensuring maximum safety for all our passengers.

They even smile for the camera… 🙂
