Cage Diving and Breaching trips in Simon’s Town, South Africa.

After a slow May, we’ve been having positive signs the past week of the great white sharks returning to their favourite cape fur seal hunting grounds, Seal Island, False Bay!  It is clear to us that the sharks are back!  And so, today the rain and wind had little chance of dampening our spirits.

Natural predations and kill slicks of Cape Fur Seals have indicated their presence, however, today was the first day in a few weeks we have had the sharks around our boat, Blue Pointer 2, showing their famous curiosity.

There is nothing quite like having those ‘men in grey suits’ getting right up close and personal with the guests! Today we were able to cage dive all our guests on board. Everyone got close views of two different sharks that were quite keen to ‘play’ and they stuck around the boat for about an hour and a half.

What a day! It feels very good to have our sharks back with us. June, July, August is typically our peak white shark season. We would love for you to come join us on one of our trips from Simon’s Town, South Africa.  We offer morning trips which give guests a chance to view natural predation and the famous ‘flying jaws’ shark breaching when we do our decoy seal tow. if you’re not quite a morning person we also offer afternoon trips  Both trips give everyone the chance of shark cage diving and view these amazing predators underwater!

See you soon!
