You may think you're a fearless lover of sensational adventures, but do you have enough heart for this experience? Discover Cape Town on a cage scuba dive among great white sharks. This full-day excursion with a shark-watching dive will introduce you to the ocean off the coast of Gansbaai and bring you within contact distance of one of the most feared predators. Before you hit the water, you'll learn about the sharks from the marine biologist and experienced guides on board. Breakfast, snacks and hotel pickup are included.

After pickup from your central Cape Town hotel, relax on the approximately 2-hour drive.

Upon arrival in Gansbaai, your driver will drop you off for breakfast or lunch (depending on your departure time which may be weather dependent) at the shark dive center, The Great White House. As you eat, you will meet your private guides who will lead this adventure. They will help you with setting up your diving equipment.

Board the specialized scuba diving boat and enjoy a stunning 20-minute boat ride to Dyer Island. When you have stopped at the ideal spot, the crew on board will lure the great white sharks with bait. You will be able to have a superb preview of it before then entering the diving cage, then in the water. The boat remains anchored for approximately two hours with the sharks, depending on activity.

Your cage is attached to the boat and is only submerged a few meters underwater during the dive, which means it's easy to come back up when you want.

On board the boat, stay hydrated and recharge your batteries with included drinks and snacks. Once back on land, enjoy a light refreshment at the Great White House, where you can purchase a professional video of the special moment if you wish.

Your experience will conclude with drop-off at your Cape Town hotel.
