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.

Customer Reviews

amazing experience. good experienced crew, we were lucky that passed within 5 min, a white shark bit sad that it was poor visibility underwater Highly recommend this company and great price as well!! - Arnold Roelen

La réservation vaut le détour : accueil dans les locaux pour le briefing, accompagné d'un petit déjeuner. L'équipe est sympathique et professionnelle. L'expérience est extraordinaire ! Après une petite 1/2h de bateau, nous arrivons sur le spot dédié. Nous passons à tour de rôle dans la cage (par 5 personnes) et y restons 5 bonnes minutes (en combinaison néoprène fournie). Les requins sont appâtés et tout le monde peut profiter de l'adrénaline provoquée par le passage du grand blanc à quelques centimètres ! Nous déjeunons ensemble au retour. L'expérience est à faire en hiver pour bénéficier d'une eau plus translucide. Et éventuellement éviter les période de Noël car nous étions peut être un peu trop nombreux. Mais à faire, sans hésiter ! - ELOISE DESUZINGE

Awesome experience - Andrea Palacios Manrique
