More about PM Shark Trip Simons Town

Our trips run from Simon's Town, which is only one hour from Cape Town.

For the afternoon shark cage diving, we chose to only take small groups on our boat, Blue Pointer, so you can enjoy a comfortable trip in a more personal and exclusive environment.

No Scuba qualifications are necessary! The cage floats just under the surface of the water, and it is situated alongside the boat. Only 5 enter the cage at a time, all scuba equipment stays on board and only the air-hose enters the cage, allowing you to enjoy a great dive without cumbersome, heavy tanks and gear.

The average dive time is 20 minutes depending on the shark activity. Once everyone has had a go, and if there is enough time, then a second dive is allowed. Our crew is highly trained and safety is of utmost importance.

During our afternoon shark cage diving trip you will be able to see the Sharks from a point-blank range and the best part is that this trip revolves around shark cage diving. No diving experience is necessary. We do offer shark diving ALL year around. Shark species can include Broadnose Sevengill cow sharks, Great white sharks, and the odd Bronzie or Copper Shark. (Mako Sharks & Blue sharks on Pelagic Trips).

Please note: Only children 9 and older are allowed on the boat!
