The adrenaline rush from shark cage diving comes from being face to face with one of the world’s greatest predators: the Great White Shark then also seeing the Bronze whalers and on the odd occasion dolphins, short-tail stingrays and cape fur seals.

The experience puts you in their territory while the safety of the activity allows you to be an observer and learn what Sharks are really like. An onboard marine biologist will educate you about any of these predators or marine life.

Shark Cage Diving is safe for children and elders and gives the whole family a wonderful opportunity to bond in a fun environment surrounded by experts and researchers.

After this once in a lifetime experience, you’ll find yourself buzzing with excitement and adrenaline. You will have had the opportunity to come up close and personal with one of the ocean's most majestic and foreboding creatures.
