Your extraordinary experience begins with a transfer from the chic shores of Camps Bay to the sharky waters of Gansbaai. After enjoying a scenic drive over Sir Lowry’s Pass and through Hermanus, arrive at your meeting point where you’ll be offered a light meal and given a safety and information briefing about your first face-to-fin encounter. Once you’re clued up and ready to roll with the toothy ones, hop aboard the boat and meet the experienced crew, skipper and dive master while enjoying light refreshments and preparing for your dive.
Skim across the water in a 20-minute boat ride to Shark Alley, a narrow channel located between Dyer Island and Geyster Rock – this is where your journey truly begins. Enjoy bone-chilling views of the toothy tyrants as they follow the chum trail and if you’re brave enough, take a turn in the cage and experience a rare eye-level introduction with one or more of these extraordinary, pant-wetting predators.
