Shark Cage Diving Cape Town

A personal, face-to-face encounter with this awesome animal, is guaranteed to get the adrenaline going! Dive with the sharks in Gaansbaai.

Cape Town Adventures Shark Cage Diving

Getting into the cage with the sharks around, is truly one of the most breath-taking adventure activities 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!
