Gansbaai Shark Cage Diving
Shark Cage Diving Operators in Gansbaai will introduce you to some of the ocean’s most fascinating shark species.
Taking you on exhilarating trips out to sea off the Gansbaai coastline, you will have the opportunity to meet with Carcharodon carcharias, also known as the great white shark*.
There are only a handful of places in the world where you can go on this adrenaline-fuelled adventure, and South Africa is one of them! While watching these magnificent creatures from the deck of your tour operator's boat offers prime viewing opportunities, kitting up in a wetsuit for a spot of shark cage diving adds a whole new dimension to the experience.
When it comes to safety, shark cage diving operators strictly adhere to safety procedures designed to protect and conserve sharks, marine life, and the ocean. Passenger safety is also of the highest standard, and an experienced skipper and qualified dive master with many years of experience are at your service. To share knowledge and answer your questions, each shark cage diving operator has a marine biologist onboard.
Other than great white sharks, you also stand a chance to see bronze whalers (copper sharks). Stingrays, dolphins, seals and penguins often make guest appearances, so you could be in for a treat. During the annual whale season, you might spot a few gentle giants having a good time.
*The great white shark is a wild animal, and sightings aren’t guaranteed.
