Shark Cage Diving

This thrilling encounter with one of nature’s most fearsome predators will stay with you for years to come. Venture into our underwater world with a tour company who prides itself on conducting responsible experiences – protecting both these creatures and the environment.

Tick This Off Your Bucket List

Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa offers the best shark cage diving in the world: attracting these awesome predators as they hunt for birds, penguins and seals. Look these hunters right in the eye and feel your adrenalin surge as you make memories you’ll keep for a lifetime.

No diving experience is needed and you’ll never be more than a metre below the surface, completely protected in a metal cage. We work in partnership with Marine Dynamics, conducting the tour on our luxury boat along with the help of a dedicated marine biologist. You can also view the sharks from an elevated viewing deck instead of a cage.

  • We’ll provide a clean, dry wetsuit and all other equipment. 
  • Suitable for both young and old.
  • The specially designed cage is extremely safe and secure.
  • Be entertained and informed as you learn more about these magnificent animals.
  • You may also spot whales, dolphins, seals and penguins, as well as rich bird life.
