South Africa is cream of the crop when it comes to Shark Cage Diving and Cape Town is the country’s prime location!

Head to Simon’s Town on False Bay and take a privileged glimpse into the private world of the great white shark, one of nature’s most brilliantly adapted marine predators. The delightful seaside village of Simon’s Town is the launching pad for Shark Cage Diving expeditions to the granite outcrop of Seal Island, home to a breeding colony of around 64,000 Cape fur seals which are a major component of the great white sharks diet. Research has estimated that False Bay and the coastline off Gansbaai and Kleinbaai support the greatest concentration of great white sharks in the world. The great white has a remarkable life span of 70 years or more and is highly adapted to ocean life. Electroreceptors on the head which enable them to detect animal movement are so incredibly sensitive they can even locate animals that are not moving by detecting their heartbeat.

False Bay has become renowned for the ‘breaching’ hunting style of its resident great whites. Using the element of surprise, the shark will ambush its prey from underneath the surface and launch itself out of the water hopefully seizing the seal in its jaws on the way up. Shark cage diving is the perfect activity for photographers, nature lovers and adventure seekers and offers an educational marine experience with opportunities to see various species of sharks, seals, sea birds, whales and other marine life.
