Shark Cage Diving “Time of my life”

Shark Cage Diving "Time of my life" An amazing group of people and Animals! The crew of the "Blue Pointer II" were beyond friendly and helpful.

Details of who to write to ” to petition” killing great white sharks

The Western Australian government has approved a plan to kill sharks that venture too close to people in the water. White sharks are a protected species in Australian waters, but the new policy would allow fisheries department officials to kill any white shark deemed an "imminent threat to people." Australia has averaged just over one fatal attack per year over the past 50 years. The Conservation Council of Western Australia praised the additional funds for research and increased patrols but slammed the new pre-emptive kill policy as ineffective. SRI agrees. It would be far more effective to use the funds [...]

Cage Diving in Simons Town – “Wonderful Experience!”

Cage Diving “Wonderful Experience!” Reviewed September 16, 2012 This trip was truly an epic experience. From the time I booked the trip to stepping off the boat at the end, everything was handled very professionally and efficiently by the staff of this family-owned business. Booking the trip by email went smoothly and I was given options on payment which was very nice. They explained that even though I had to put a credit card on file, I could pay cash at the end to save the 3% added to non-cash transactions. So I was able to plan that part ahead [...]

Our shark cage diving was “Beyond Expectations”

Shark cage diving review “Beyond Expectations” Reviewed September 24, 2012 Early morning pickup in Cape Town arranged by Eco Tours, Allie met us on the dock and we were off in no time. Spectacular ride out to seal island, 100's of dolphin riding the bow wake out with us. Backside of Table Mountain framed against False Bay with the sun rising...I was just happy to be living this moment. My buddy and I were first in the shark cage, and within minutes they had our oxygen hose set and under the water we went. Spent 20 of the most exhilarating [...]

Shark Cage Diving trip 20 Sept 2012

Shark Cage Diving trip report: We had a phenomenal Great White Shark join us on our shark cage diving trip this morning. We only saw a total of two sharks for the duration of the shark cage diving trip, but the one Great White Shark stuck around our boat the entire time! We had a very small group of people on the shark cage diving trip this morning, which is  just as well because we had to turn back early as the wind started picking up quite a bit. We did manage to dive all the guests twice though, so they were [...]

Shark Cage Diving trip 19 Sept 2012

Shark Cage Diving trip report: Another awesome shark cage diving trip this morning! We had a unexpected breach early on in the trip, before anchoring up at Seal Island to start the shark cage diving.
