For all the adrenaline junkies, if there is one thing you must add to your bucket list, it has to be shark cage diving with Great Whites!
After all, it is one of the rarest opportunity to view these incredible monsters of the deep in their natural habitat.
Shark cage diving in South Africa has grown greatly in popularity and there are now a number of commercialized locations to view these incredible monsters of the deep. Your adrenaline is sure to pump as you come almost face to face with the sea’s most awesome predators. Shark cage diving is absolutely safe and you need not have any diving experience at all. Just before you start, you’ll receive a short course on general safety and the use of the equipment and you’re good to go.
The best time to experience a South African shark cage dive is from May to October, which also happens to be winter season here so be ready for the ice cold water and cold winds.
There are two main places in South Africa that promise fantastic shark cage diving experiences namely Gansbaai and Mossel Bay. While Gansbaai is just 2 hour drive from Cape Town – the provincial capital of the Western Cape Province and offers awesome South African shark cage diving experiences every day in the picturesque Kleinbaai Harbour, the Mossel bay is situated exactly half way between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth (both 400 km away)
