Depending on the action, you will be able to view sharks for from above or below the water for about 5 hours. All diving gear is kept on board the boat. If you are a qualified diver and can produce your certification card than you may enter the cage on Scuba, it is also possible to snorkel in the cage and this is the preferred option as the bubbles from Scuba equipment may keep the sharks away. Viewing from the boat is also excellent.
15:00 – 17:00
Return to Gansbaai. You will be taken back to our farmhouse style dining room, to enjoy a home cooked lunch before being taken back to Cape Town.
On route back to Cape Town the driver will stop at Hermanus for whale watching in season, from July to November.
