More about AM Shark Trip Simons Town

Our Morning trip is a viewing and shark cage diving trip. The two areas of operation are Seal Island and Cape Point. The area location of the trips will be determined the day before, after determining the weather, shark activity and which shark species we are more likely to encounter. The shark species we hope to encounter may be Great white sharks, Broadnose sevengill cow sharks, Bronze Whaler sharks, Mako sharks, and Blue sharks.

Our trips run from Simons Town, which is only 45 minutes from Cape Town. All our crew are highly qualified, and have spent years working on boats and with sharks. 06h40 / 07h00: Meet at Simons Town Pier. The exact meet time will be communicated the day prior to the trip. Our boat is the Blue Pointer. You will be welcomed aboard and a full safety briefing is given as well as the expected weather forecast for the day. An overview is given about what the trip entails, the do’s and dont’s to be expected.

07h00-11.30: In the pre-dawn darkness, we depart for Seal Island or Cape Point. Please bring your camera or phone to take photos of the incredibly beautiful scenery.

Seal Island: Arrive at Seal Island. Seeing dawn breaking over the Island and False Bay is truly breath-taking. We do an inspection lap of the island giving information on the animal and bird life that is found on Seal Island. Choosing the best spot to anchor up with regard to wind and swell direction.

Cape Point: Arrive off Cape Point.

The cage is lowered into the water. A bait line and carpet seal decoy are put in the water. We do not feed sharks, nor touch sharks. We are NOT an adrenalin outfit. Then it’s time to get up close and personal with the sharks. The average dive time per guest is about 20 minutes. Of course, we will not force anyone to go in the cage but would encourage it. One of the several onboard guides will interact with the guests during the course of the trip to supply information and answer any questions they may have.

Please note: Only children 9 and older are allowed on the boat!
