Great White Shark Cage Diving
The boat leaves Gansbaai harbour mid-morning after a safety briefing and an explanation of the day's itinerary. It is a short distance, about 5 miles, to Dyer Island where the crew will drop anchor and make final preparations before the sharks arrive.
A chum is prepared and poured into the water. This chum, each skipper has his own secret recipe, is irresistible to sharks and attracts the sharks to come and investigate. On average, you will be out at sea for around 2 hours, but this depends on shark activity, conditions, as well as the number of divers on the day. Weather permitting, your skipper shall take you on a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley. It is so well populated by sharks that the operators are able to almost guarantee fantastic sightings of the magnificent creatures.
Upon return to the Great White House, enjoy some soup and bread to warm you up. All diving equipment, light lunch, and refreshments are supplied. Only snorkelling experience is required if you want to go down in the cage. In addition to sharks, you may also see seals and whales, in season. The crew will then take you back to port. Keep your eyes open on the short trip back as often there are fantastic whale and dolphin sightings.
