This trip will have you exploring magnificent coastline and bay. A day filled with thrills and fun spent in a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment. The great white shark trip is an amazing experience, offering you a chance to not only watch great white sharks breach, but to also cage dive. Great white shark cage diving is a mix of adrenalin, thrills, fun and learning. With the qualified guides, you will learn so much about sharks. Those who prefer not to enter the cage can still experience an incredible view from the boat. Next stop is at Hermanus where travelers will join a boat-based whale watching trip for sightings of these majestic oceanic giants and have lunch at one of the amazing restaurants which offer an opportunity to gaze at mating and calving southern whales. We end the tour by visiting the beautiful vineyards of Hemel-en-Aarde Valley for its unique wine and cheese pairings.

What To Expect

Gansbaai is known as the Great White Capital of the world as it is the place where you can dive with Great White Sharks all year round. In the chilly waters of Cape Town's coast, thrill seekers can come face-to-face with one of the ocean's most feared predators: great white sharks protected by the thick bars of an iron cage. No diving certification is needed since divers are enclosed in the custom-built cages. Those who prefer to observe these magnificent creatures from a distance can watch all the excitement from the boat. 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 then you’re set to go.
