Shark Cage Diving from Simonstown harbour in Cape Town is one of those experiences you simply cannot miss. False Bay is home to Great White sharks, greatly misunderstood super predators of the oceans. False Bay is one of the only recorded places in the world where these sharks are known to breach while on the hunt for seals from Seal Island.
Trips go out daily with the opportunity to see these amazing animals up close and personal in a viewing cage, attached to the side of the boat. Many studies are being done on Great Whites to better understand their migratory patterns and habits in an attempt to dispel all the negative publicity they have attracted as â€œman-eatersâ€.
Shark Cage Diving is available year round from Simonstown harbour in Cape Town although winter is the best time to view these amazing creatures, with day trips being the most popular although 10 day educational expeditions are also available.
Whale season is July - October
