Afternoon Shark Cage Diving Trip – Simon’s Town
During our afternoon trip you will be able to see the Great White Sharks from a point blank range and the best part is that this trip revolve around shark cage diving. No diving experience is necessary.
Our trips run from Simons Town, which is only 40 minutes from Cape Town.
We only take only 8-10 divers on the boat so you can enjoy a comfortable afternoon shark cage diving trip in a more personal and exclusive environment.
No Scuba qualifications are necessary! The cage floats just under the surface of the water, and it is situated alongside the boat. Only two enter the cage at a time, all scuba equipment stays on board and only the scuba hose enters the cage, allowing you to enjoy a great dive without cumbersome, heavy tanks and gear.
The average dive time is 20-30 minutes depending on the shark activity. Once everyone has had a go, and if there is enough time, then a second dive is allowed. Our crew is highly trained and safety is of utmost importance.
Transfers: Optional: Return transfers from designated pickup points in Cape Town
Duration: Approx 3.5 hours. The trips leave at 13h15 and returns at 16h45 weather depending.
How many passengers on the boat? 8-10
How many divers in the cage? 2
Do you offer scuba? Yes. All diving equipment is supplied. No Scuba qualifications are necessary
Does using scuba affect the sharks coming to the boat? No. In our experience working in False Bay since 1996, we have found that the bubbles or scuba noise have no effect on the great white sharks.
Do you use shark liver to attract sharks? No. We are an eco-sensitive company.
Please Note: We have a very high success rate, however with all wild animals, shark sightings, activity, predation events and breaching can vary from day to day. Even during peak season there may be days when we do not see any breaching or predatory events.
Please be aware of this, so you do not arrive with unrealistic expectations. Rather come hoping to see these natural events, than expecting. No refunds will be made for non-sightings. We will however offer you a voucher for another trip.
