We invite you to join us on an expedition into this noble savage’s world. You could get close and personal in the cage or enjoy the experience from the deck of the largest and most stable boat operating from Gansbaai Harbour.
Getting into the cage with the sharks around, is truly one of the most breath-taking adventure activities you will ever live to remember. When feeding actively around the boat, the sharks may occasionally brush their tail against the cage, but NEVER attack the cage. They are very curious though and often come close-up to the cage, taking a closer look at the diver. A personal, eye-to-eye encounter with this awesome animal, is guaranteed to get the adrenaline going!
