The Shark Cage Diving Experience

Breakfast (included in the price) is served at the restaurant before the boat launch.Your  adventure begins with a fascinating and informative talk about the route and do`s and D`onts 

You  are then  fitted with comfortable inflatable life-jackets. Safety is of the utmost importance.A short walk to the Harbour bristling with activity and you board the boat.Tracktors reverse the boat into the Water and the Skipper roars the engines to life and off you go.Two powerful 300 HP engines sends the boat skimming over the swells towards Dyer IslandAt the anchoring spot in 20 to 25 minutes.

The anchor is lowered, the cage goes into the water, a scent trail is made, and we settle down.

Preparations for the diving begin. Your size is noted and a wetsuit is provided with Hood and booties in Small ,Medium, Large and Xtra Large. These are put on in the cabin and the first Group of Divers ready themselves.

As the First Great Whites arrive the excitement levels climb quickly and the first Group enter the cage.
 
The crew instruct Divers to go under and look either left,ahead or right.Take a deep breath and under the water.The Great Whites nudge along the cage as you experience a fabulous close up with these magnificent creatures
The rest of the day is spent watching, diving and enjoying the day
After spending time with the sharks, we make our way to Dyer Island, if possible.
 
The boat trip does not go to the island everytime as that depends on weather and sea conditions. At Dyer Island we can approach close enough to view African penguins, Cape cormorants and many other species. We also often spot giant petrels, Cape gannets, white chinned petrels and storm petrels.
Neighbouring Dyer Island is Geyser Rock, home to thousands of Cape Fur Seals. The stretch of water between the two islands is Shark Alley. We visit Shark Alley to view the seals. The colony is thriving and there is always lots of activity, especially around November time when the tiny pups are born. 
 
After about 3 to 4 hours, depending on the day, we head back to land. Should you wish to return to shore earlier, a transfer can be arranged.
