Shark Cage Diving – 9 Hours

The shark cage dive takes place out at Dyer Island, roughly 15 minutes by boat from Gansbaai. The island is home to a colony of over 50 000 Cape Fur Seals – the white shark’s favourite food and primary source of nutrition. Running between Dyer and neighbouring Geyser Rock is a channel of ocean so frequented by great white sharks that it has been dubbed ‘Shark Alley’. Sharks move between Shark Alley and Die Dam and our boat anchors in these areas for up-close encounters with great whites. The cage is dropped at the diving site and guests are allocated diving gear.

Trip Highlights

  • Kleinbaai
  • Dyer Island
  • Shark Alley


Day 1

Depart early from Cape Town and travel to Kleinbaai where you will receive breakfast and register your wetsuit size. Receive a pre-trip safety briefing about what to expect during the trip and a biological background on great white sharks. After the required briefing, stroll down to the harbour to board the vessel. Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes, with the shallows being a short 10 minute ride (where the boat shall anchor depends on where the sharks are). On average, you will be out at sea for around 2 hours depending on shark activity, conditions, as well as number of divers on the day. Weather permitting, your skipper shall take you on a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley. Upon return to Kleibaai, enjoy some warm soup and bread to warm you up. Cash showers are available to freshen up before departing back to Cape Town.
