If you are looking for a unique opportunity of getting up-close and personal with one of nature’s most awesome predators, then look no further. ComeToCapeTown.com offers you the opportunity to spend a day with the Great White Sharks that inhabit the waters of the South African coastline. You will get the chance to dive in the world’s most famous Great White shark hunting ground: Gansbaai’s Shark Alley, only a 2 hour drive from Cape Town!
An early departure is necessary to be able to spend as much time as possible in the presence of the Great White. Breakfast will be provided on arrival in Gansbaai, so no need to worry about missing your hotel’s morning treats. After a full security briefing you will make your way to the boat waiting to take you out to the world-famous Shark Alley, off the coast of Gansbaai.
Upon anchoring at Shark Alley you will get the chance to observe all of its inhabitants, from its seals and various birdlife, to Southern Right Whales visiting its waters in season (July to November), and of course the Great White shark. A wetsuit and a diving mask will be provided for you to share the waters with the awesome creature from the safety of a cage which is attached to the boat and floats right next to it. The time you spend into the cage is between 10 and 30 minutes as it depends on the weather and the number of spotted sharks. No diving experience is required.
Upon completion of your cage dive and arrival back at Gansbaai harbour, you will get the chance to watch the day’s actions on DVD while devouring a well-deserved lunch. On request, a certificate will be provided to you as to share with your friends and family this incredible day.
