Know before you go
  • Safety during Cage Diving is paramount, divers will be supervised by a Dive Master and we have all the required permits and safety equipments on board. We make use of a securely designed steel cage, which floats on the surface, with divers no more than 1 m below the surface. All dives are breath-hold which is comfortable and safe. This is common practice among Gansbaai shark cage diving operators - NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! The best way to see the sharks is to simply hold your breath! 

  • For those not wanting to go shark cage diving, surface viewing can also be arranged for them. You will still get to see this amazing animal up close and personal. The price is the same for diving and surface viewing.

  • Video and DVD footage of your adventure: The service of a professional underwater videographer who is highly experienced in this field is on board. Your personal shark cage diving trip to Gansbaai will be captured on a high quality video / DVD (above and underwater) and a copy will be made available to you after the tour at a minimal cost. Capture this once-in-a-lifetime personal experience on film. Keep the memory of your shark cage diving trip with you forever.

    We do appreciate so much visiting captown with Daniel 

    He like his job and what he does ( very well )

    And we could feel it 

    We didn’t ask him but before pick up at the railway station he went before to our hotel to see if everything is ok 

    He is very interesting and funny we didn’t see time passing with him

    He knew many things and share it with you

    2 days were not enough but after he was already engaged with another group

    So if you are looking for a guide don’t look anymore contact Daniel Sidis
