Shark Cage Diving Gansbaai – Cape Town
Shark Cage Diving Gansbaai Cape Town
Shark cage diving is a must-do. There are two shark area’s. Gansbaai and Simon’s Town.
Gansbaai: During the Summer (October to end February ), it is the low- intermediate season and we would recommend shark cage diving at Gansbaai instead of Simon’s Town (Seal Island, False Bay). Reason being, is that in False Bay the great white sharks move away from Seal Island to the inshore area’s.
False Bay: During the Winter, high season, we would recommend booking with us in Simon’s Town (Seal Island, False Bay).
Shark cage diving - Gansbaai ( 2.5 hrs from Cape Town), is done in a narrow channel called Shark Alley, which is the open stretch of water between Dyer Island and nearby Geyser Island. Although this is low season for shark activity in South Africa, “Shark Alley” in Gansbaai still produces activity that is worth viewing.
We can book you a cage diving trip in Gansbaai.
Knowing all the in’s and out’s of the industry, this is where we come in to take the hassle out of your booking. As there are 8 other operators in Gansbaai ( some good and others not) it can be confusing as to which is the best company to book with as they all claim to be “the best”.
