Arrive at Cape Town International Airport where you will be greeted by an Adventure Dives representative and transferred to a comfortable B&B on the South Peninsula, your base for the next four nights. After settling in, your dive guide will give an in-depth introduction to the dive sites and dive techniques required as well as a boat orientation and equipment check.
We will also discuss what sights and activities you would like to enjoy from the many options available during your short stay before taking a familiarization sight seeing drive around the peninsula. This short tour will include a Cable car ride to top of Table Mountain, the historic Castle, the central city area including the Flower market, the Malay quarter and the exciting Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. (V&A)
As with the remainder of the holiday, your guide will be with you to provide transport for the duration of your stay as well as accompanying you on the dive excursions. Breakfasts are included throughout; all other meals will be taken at one of the wide variety of world-class restaurants or pubs.
We will depart Cape Town before breakfast and head east to Gansbaai. On arrival, refreshments will be served (along with a bowl of seasick tablets for the overeaters!). Following refreshments, we will spend the day at sea on a custom built boat observing the awesome Great White Shark both from on deck and within the cage.
This apex predator is, like the lion on land, something a person should see at least once in a lifetime. They have such a beauty and grace that nervousness is soon overcome by fascination and respect for these amazing animals. Refreshments are supplied on board.
