One for the Bucket List? Shark cage Diving in Kleinbaai, Gansbaai in South Africa
Looking for the ultimate shark experience in South Africa? You have come to the right place! Join us on our trips and see the Great White Shark up close, in our floating shark cage. Scuba diving and snorkeling with sharks in. Our professional team will take you on a diving adventure that you will never forget.
Brian McFarlane has become a local legend with his fascinating tales about the sea and underwater experiences. During the time
when Great White Shark fishing was allowed, Brian caught Great Whites, some weighing more than 1 ton.
Today, he dearly regrets this and now spends his time and efforts in finding the great beasts to be observed and photographed at close range. Brian has worked with the Great Whites for 18 years, and has only had 6 non-sighting days in the last 10 years. This is unequaled in the industry and therefore is the ONLY operator
to offer a MONEY BACK GUARANTEE and not a voucher for a replacement dive.
The owner and founder of Great White Shark Tours cc believes that…
- Every tourist who dives is entititled to have a shark swim past him or her an acceptable number of times, even though this means that the average trip length is longer than other operators where in many cases only single trips are done in a day.
- He will be personally involved in the operation and will go out as the skipper, spending time with his customers and educating them about both the sharks and the sea.
This in turn gives rise to his vision statement of:
“Provide clients with an unforgettable educational trip, diving and viewing great white sharks that we respect and will protect”
The waters around Shark Alley are his territory, and he knows them well.
The trip: Meet at the crew house in kleinbaai for a continental breakfast & briefing before the boat departure from Kleinbaai Harbour.
You board Brian’s luxury 13 m catamaran “Apex Predator” for the 7km voyage to Dyer Island. While you are relaxing, the crew will attract the Great White Sharks, which are normally seen 99% of the time.
Great White Sharks are the world’s largest predatory fish, reaching up to 6 meters in length. They are powerful enough to launch their 2-ton bodies clear out of the water and are the ocean’s top predator, and the most feared creature of the sea, to both sailors and sea inhabitants alike.
The cage is of floating variety and is custom – made using 12mm galvanised steel mesh and comfortably dives up to 7 divers. The cage floats right next to the boat to enable the diver to climb in and out easily.
The trip may include a visit to Geyer Rock Cape Fur Seal Colony and Dyer Island. Geyer Rock Cape Fur Seal Colony consists of 30 – 40 000 Cape Fur Seals, while Dyer Island has 23 different types of sea birds.
We arrive back at Kleinbaai approximately 4 hours after departure. Our shuttle service can provide passengers with one-way or return transfer from Cape Town (Launch Times depend on tides).
