Going Shark Cage Diving and actually seeing a Great White Shark up close and personal in its own natural environment is guaranteed to change your perspective for life.

Dispell all those "Jaws" myths & fears and make a date with a Great White Shark today! Great White Shark Cage Diving in False Bay is a definite must for all adrenaline junkies! 

Watch as the Great White Shark propels itself clean out of the water in pursuit of the bait which is pulled away at the very last moment. It's an absolutely spectacular sight that you will never forget!

Then take the plunge and sink below the water to view these amazing animals, see them glide by within arm's reach of the cage.  

Seal Island in False Bay (near Simon's Town) is where all the Shark Diving & Surface Viewing takes place and is well known around the globe for the many shark documentaries filmed here.

Don't forget to bring your camera as there is plenty of photo opportunities from above and below.

You start the day by meeting at the Simon's Town Pier where you will be met by the crew.

Once on board you'll receive a boat safety briefing, a short introduction on the Great White Shark activity and what you can expect with regards to the Cage Dive.

This is dependent on shark activity.
