Shark cage diving in False bay

Snorkeling, Swimming

Are you ready to go Shark cage diving in False bay?

This Shark diving experience in False bay will take you to see sharks up very closely, inside of a cage attached to a boat. 
False bay is a popular spot for sharks, due to the dense population of Cape Fur Seals.
The experience starts in False bay. After check-in, we will provide you with an important safety briefing and serve you breakfast. 
After receiving all the important information and eating breakfast, we will go for a short walk our way down to Simon’s Town Pier. There, we will get aboard on the boat, offering you the best cage diving experience, to see the amazing white sharks from nearby.
Once the boat has arrived at a good shark spot around seal island, the crew will start to attract the sharks by feeding them with tuna and other fish. 
When the first shark has been spotted, the first lot of people will have the chance to get into the cage, and experience a face-to-face experience with these incredible predators. Entering the cage will be done rotating with others every so often.
For those who fear getting inside of the cage, you can stay aboard the boat, as the sharks can also be seen from outside of the water.
Onboard you will also be treated with drinks and snacks. 
After all excitement, we will return to the initial meeting point, to eat a light lunch and see the video images of the day.
This experience depends on weather and sea conditions, as sharks are not kept in captivity, we can't guarantee you will see a white shark, but the chances are high.
We are certain everyone will feel some adrenaline and excitement on this experience. This experience will take about 4 hours. Our boat can take up to 18 people. 
Try to convince your group of friends and/or family and let’s go Shark diving in False bay!
You will also be treated to drinks and snacks on board to keep the hunger pangs away and allow you to focus your full attention on the Great Whites.
You will then return to harbour and the meeting place and enjoy a light lunch whilst watching the DVD of the day.
