Dive with the Great White Sharks

Depart Cape Town early in the morning and travel to Kleinbaai. The staff will meet you at the Great White House in Kleinbaai before your trip, here there are bathroom facilities, as well as a restaurant and gift shop. A continental breakfast is provided at the restaurant before the boat launch. Every trip is preceded by a brief introductory talk about the route and what to look to out for. Passengers are fitted with comfortable inflatable life-jackets as safety is of the utmost importance.

The launch is usually at around 9:00 am in the morning (note that launching times may vary due to tide and weather conditions), arriving at the anchoring spot in 20 to 25 minutes. The anchor is lowered, the cage goes into the water, a scent trial is made, final preparations for the diving are made and the rest of the day is spent watching, diving and enjoying the day Neighbouring Dyer Island is Geyser Rock, which is home to 60,000 Cape Fur Seals.

The stretch of water between the two islands is Shark Alley. Time, weather and tide permitting, a visit will be made to Shark Alley to view the seals. The colony is thriving and there is always lots of activity, especially around November, when the tiny pups are born. After about 3 to 4 hours, depending on the day, head back to land. Should you wish to return to shore earlier, a boat transfer can be arranged at an additional charge. Once back on dry land, guests will be given a chance to freshen up before departing back to Cape Town.

Handy tip:
Sun protection, a hat and warm clothing are advisable on the boat trip, and those prone to seasickness should take the correct precautions. Wetsuits, goggles, masks, weights as well as clean towels are all provided.
