Shark Cage Diving Optional Transfer
- About 4 hours
We’ll take you on an adrenalin-surging adventure experience in the heart of the world’s Great White Shark mecca that will leave you in awe of these gliding torpedoes of power.
Designed to accommodate both divers and non-divers, you can be assured of safety and a once in a lifetime experience.
We collect you from Cape Town and drive you to our home base in Kleinbaai. On arrival at our Dive Lodge in Kleinbaai, the day will begin with a tasty continental breakfast and a safety briefing on current sightings, indemnities, wet suits and equipment.
Our crew will then welcome you on board our custom built 36ft, 4 tonne catamaran, “Shark Team”. Although she has a passenger capacity of 36, we limit passenger numbers to 20, offering a more intimate experience and providing greater comfort and increased viewing capability. You will be accompanied by our intrepid skippers, a Dive Master and support crew.
Once we’ve reached our diving location and dropped anchor, our crew will create a scent trail, while you patiently await your electrifying first glimpse of the iconic fin breaking the water’s surface.
No dive is ever the same, so we can never predict what will happen once we are on site nor how many sharks we will see. Great Whites are incredibly nomadic and if you consider that there are less than 5000 of them left on our planet, even if you only see 1 shark on your dive, you can count yourself very fortunate.
Back on deck you will be able to observe shark activity which occurs close to the water surface. Lunch boxes containing a variety snacks will be on hand for you to enjoy at leisure, with soft drinks and juices offering added refreshment while you bask under South Africa’s legendary sunny skies.
After about 3 hours out at sea, you will be ready to return to shore where comforting soup awaits you, giving you a chance to regroup and share the day’s experiences before being driven back to your meeting point.

Amazing day out, worth every penny!
We did not see any great whites but it was still worth it, there were 6 bronze sharks around us the whole time. The cage is pretty small when 6 people are in it but not an issue. Highly recommend going if you are staying in or around Cape town!!
We were rushed onto and off of the boat, and packed in like cattle. Seriously bumping into people every 2 seconds, highly annoying. Barely got any time in the water and didn’t even get to see a great white up close. There was one around, but of course they rushed us in and out of the cage and we didn’t get an opportunity to view it in the cage. We saw it briefly from the boat, but that’s not why I came to South Africa. They need to lower their guest maximum and extend their times. And lastly, do. not. rush!! I maybe, maybe got 20 minutes in the water maximum. Not okay, not worth it, extremely disappointed with this service. The only good thing about this company is their hired driver that transported us to and from our hotel.
An incredible experience with White Shark projects. All the personnel and crew were extremely friendly and professional. Thom, who was our Marine Biologist on board, did a brilliant job educating us on shark behaviour and clearing up all the myths concerning these creatures. I have a new found love for them and our 2 boys were ecstatic over this experience and viewing them within their natural environment. I highly recommend this as a bucket list number.
Super friendly service, and staff..... allways try to accommodate us..... service with a smile.....
OMG!!! What an experience... No words can describe. Tom was amazing with his guidance and the rest of the team as well. You could see that this is not a mass tourist attraction. The briefing... The information... Everything was just AMAZING. We travelled a long way as this was my father's wish and ticked off the list successfully. 1000% recommend this company.
Thank you so much guys.
