Tick It Off Your Bucket List

Nothing can prepare you for the thrill and wonder of a close encounter with the most awesome predator of the ocean, the Great White Shark. Meeting this majestic beast eye-to-eye will leave you on a high for days and change your perception of sharks forever.

Join Grootbos, in partnership with Marine Dynamics, on an outing to the world famous Dyer Island and legendary Shark Alley. Discover the underwater world of the Great White Shark onboard a luxury boat in the company of experts and a dedicated marine biologist! Watch these elegant hunters from an elevated viewing deck or climb into the cage to get up close and personal.

Safe, Exciting and Educational

You don’t have to be an adrenaline junkie to enjoy this eco adventure. Shark Cage Diving is an activity for young and old. No diving experience is required and all equipment is provided onboard including a clean, dry wetsuit. The specially designed cage is safe and secure, and floats with part of the cage out of the water. Divers are never more than a metre below the surface. When the sharks are around the boat, the divers get into the cage and the sharks are lured to within centimetres.

The onboard experts are there to assist you and provide relevant information that goes a long way in dispelling the myths about these magnificent animals.

Besides Great White Sharks, you are highly likely to meet at least one other member of the Marine Big 5 namely whales, dolphins, seals and penguins. The bird life is also incredibly rich around Dyer Island, including rare pelagic bird species. The 20 - 25 minute boat trip to the dive site is by itself an exhilarating adventure.
