Itinerary: Western Cape

How it begins

We collect you from Cape Town or Hermanus and take you on a scenic drive to ‘White Shark Lodge’, our home base in Kleinbaai, to enjoy a delicious continental breakfast and discuss current sightings, indemnities, wet suits and equipment before heading off to board our custom built 36 ft, 4 tonne white shark dive catamaran – ‘Shark Team’. We limit her 30 passenger capacity to 20 plus crew to ensure your comfort and viewing pleasure throughout your adventure experience.

You get to meet one of our intrepid skippers, a qualified paramedic, a Dive Master and our friendly crew and enjoy a short talk on shark anatomy and behaviour. We explain how we work with the sharks in the area and how you will spend the next couple of hours diving and viewing these wondrous predators in their natural habitat.

As the day unfolds

You are fully briefed on all procedures and the action begins as our crew ‘chums’ the cruise area and you wait with bated breath for your initial glimpse of the first shark fin.

Sharks are usually wary at first and we wait a while for them to settle and then lower the dive cage. Our first guests enter the cage (takes 4 – 5 people) and spend about 20 minutes face to face with the sharks !

We will work with individual sharks and you can enjoy topside viewing during your wait as shark activity is often close to the surface. In fact Great Whites are also known for their ‘spy hopping’breaching right out of the water in pursuit of prey ! Topside viewing can yield a lot of those action shots !

Lunch and refreshments

Our lunch boxes are hearty, offering a variety of fresh sandwiches, crisps, sweets and assorted soft drinks and juices for you to enjoy at leisure whilst on board enjoying the fine South African weather.

On our return to the harbour we treat you to tea and scones at the lodge giving you a chance to regroup and share the day’s experiences after which you will be driven back to your original meeting point.

Equipment

We provide all necessary diving and safety equipment for you to enjoy your cage diving experience in South Africa in comfort and security. We only ask that you bring suntan lotion, cap and sunglasses, a warm jersey/jacket and of course, a swimming suit and towel. If you know you are prone to motion sickness or even if you are unsure if you are, we advise you take medication before we depart so as not to spoil your adventure ! And last tip – don’t forget your camera !!

Please note: Transfer costs are excluded, should you need a return transfer to/from Cape Town, the cost will be R350 per person.


Terms, conditions and cancellation policyTours must be cancelled at least 24 hours prior to departure. If the client cancels less than 24 hours before tour departure from Cape Town, a 100% cancellation fee will apply. If a client does not arrive for their tour (no-show) a 100% cancellation fee will apply. Thorough weather checks are done prior to our trips. If bad weather prevents us from proceeding with a trip on any particular day, clients are informed and alternative date is negotiated or an entire refund is given. If strong winds pick up while out at sea and a return to shore is required for the safety of passengers and crew, a refund is not applicable but we will graciously offer a voucher for a free trip. Remember we are dealing with wild animals so sightings can not be guaranteed. Refunds are not considered in the event of non-sightings, however a second tour is offered free of charge. Due to the variable weather conditions and shark activity, diving may not always be possible and is therefore not guaranteed. The boat tour we offer consists of 3-4 hours at sea. Time related itineraries and collection times are dependent on tides, weather conditions, and the amount of tours scheduled for a particular day. Exact collection times are only available after 16h00 the day prior to the tour and may vary between 4:30am and 11:30am daily. If our vessel is out of the water for a certain period (for maintenance or any other reason) we will continue to run our tours by chartering another vessel (also adequately registered for shark cage diving).
Child policyWe unfortunately do not cater for children under the age of 5 years old unless families are booking exclusive use of the boat.
