Activity Description

Only children aged 10 and older will be allowed in the cage (under parent supervision).
All children aged 5 and older pays the same price, as it takes up a seat on the boat.

Getting into the cage with the sharks around, is truly the most breath-taking experience you will ever live to remember. When feeding actively around the boat, the sharks may occasionally brush their tail against the cage, but NEVER attack the cage. They are very curious though and often come close-up to the cage, taking a closer look at the diver. A personal, eye-to-eye encounter with this awesome animal, is guaranteed to get the adrenaline going!

White shark diving up close and personal
Our cage is situated next to the side of the boat and once ready to take the dive, our Dive Master would assist the diver into the opening at the top of the cage. Once in position, the divers head would be no more than half a meter below the surface. A free-board of approx. 30cm allows the diver to rise to the surface and effectively communicate with the Dive Master on the boat. Snorkelers would secure themselves by holding onto the convenient cross bars, situated at the top of the cage.

Diving takes place on a quick and effective rotational system, with 5 to 6 divers down at a time. Once the rotation is completed it will be repeated, therefore ensuring that each diver can take as many dives as possible. Time spent in the cage depends on weather/water conditions, shark activity and eagerness of each diver, but is usually approx. 15 minutes at a time. We rarely have more than 18 divers on board at a time, ensuring maximum cage diving time for all divers and snorkelers.

It was such a great experience! Both of us really enjoyed the trip. It was interesting to see these sharks in there natural habitat and learn about them. It was definitely one of the best parts of our South Africa journey. Es war eine grossartige Erfahrung. Uns hat das Haitauchen wirklich sehr gut gefallen. Es war sehr interessant die Haie in ihrem naturlichen Lebensraum zu sehen und viele Sachen uber sie zu lernen. Es war definitiv eines der Highlights unserer Sudafrika Reise. - Axel Kuipers
