White Shark Cage Fiving


During peak season for cage diving with white sharks in South Africa, we offer you a choice of two venues. Each venue, namely Seal Island in False Bay, "Home of the flying sharks, as in Air-Jaws", and the famous Dyer Island near Gansbaai, has its own well earned reputation.

Theunis Esterhuizen, co-owner of Shark Adventures, most probably knows the two venues more intimately than anyone in the industry due to the fact that he is the only operator that has operated at both venues over an extended period of time. Rely on his knowledge and experience to advise you where and when to do what.

Seal Island - False Bay ("Air Jaws") Home of the flying white shark

Mid-March through to mid-September, Seal Island in False Bay offers you the best white shark activity on the face of the planet. All activities offered at Seal Island with its + - 50 000 strong Cape Fur seal colony, starts from the lovely Gordons Bay, only a 40 minute drive, outside of Cape Town central. The boat ride there will take + - 45 minutes.

If it is the ultimate experience you want, book a trip with us during False Bay's peak season for an unforgettable Combination trip, that includes Cage diving but is foregone by first witnessing early morning Natural Predation (White sharks hunting down Cape fur seals), then Breaching (White sharks flying out of the water after their prey as in "Air Jaws"). There is no other white shark cage diving venue on earth that can come close to offfer you this combination trip activity, with such a high success rate. It remains the ultimate experience if you not only wat to see the animal from within the safety of a cage only, but also to actually see what they are capable of when they go into "hunting mode". The impression when witnessing it, will last forever. If you are an enthusiast, plan your trip for our winter months....it is the best.

Cage diving - Dyer Island at Gansbaai

White Shark cage diving excursions to Geyser and Dyer Island begins at the picturesque Kleinbaai harbour near Gansbaai. Geyser Island is home to a permanent colony of approximately 40 000 Cape Fur Seals.

The channel between these islands is renowned worldwide to be the best place to observe; encounter and cage dive with the Great White Shark and is known as "Shark Alley".

Sharks are often portrayed as this man-eating monster of the seas but by exercising proper education procedures we can protect the white shark successfully.

We maintan the highest standards and comply with the strictest code of conduct and safety for both diver and shark as laid down by our local Marine & Coastal Management. All crew are experienced on our waters and have had long ties to the sea their main priority is your safety and well being. Sharing their years of knowledge in working with sharks their goal is to lead you to a better understanding of sharks. All you need to qualify to do the cage dive is to feel comfortable in a cage in water.

Always bear in mind that when dealing with Wildlife one cannot always guarantee seeing White Sharks on every trip.

An " Experience of a Lifetime " meeting this magnificent animal face to face for the first time in his own environment, will be forever imprinted in your memory!

So join us on a trip and we will help to make this your "Experience of a Lifetime"
