hark Cage Diving-Simon’s Town

The adventure begins in Simon’s Town, just 40 min from Cape Town and the base from where our boat departs early in the morning. A short 20 minute will take you to Seal Island into False Bay, famous for the great white “Flying Sharks”, a term used for their highly athletic breaching and hunting behavior.

NO QUALIFICATIONS for shark cage diving are necessary! The cage floats just under the surface of the water, and it is situated alongside the boat. Only two enter the cage at a time. We are the only one to offer scuba diving on all our trips. No experience needed all scuba equipment stays on board and only the scuba hose enters the cage, allowing you to enjoy a great dive without cumbersome, heavy tanks and gear. You are welcome to snorkel as well if you don’t wish to scuba dive.

The average dive time is 20 minutes depending on the shark activity. Once everyone has had a go, then a second dive is allowed for those interested in diving again. The crew is highly trained and safety is of utmost importance.

You guys were totally amazing and friendly and made it just that bit more special. I would happily recommend you to anyone thinking of going.
