Opinions On Shark Cage Diving

What the locals say about Shark Cage Diving.

Tony Hwang

Incredible experience! Was able to see two great white sharks on the first dive. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Only wished that we could've stayed longer and get more time in the water. Overall experience was fantastic.

Andre Siegl

Absolutely great experience and one of the reasons for our stay in Cape Town!!

My experience with Marine Dynamics was amazing! Our transfer happened without any problems - we even saw whales on the drive through Hermanus! The trip out on Slashfin was wonderful, plenty to drink and eat and the hot chocolate was exactly what you needed getting out of the water! As for the dive - unforgettable! We had 12 sharks show up on the day and our turn in the cage was epic. These creatures are beautiful and Marine Dynamics showcased them well. It is good to see an environmentally responsible/moral company out on the water. One tip - the video download was not quite value for money. I suggest adding in some underwater shots or something. There seemed to be limited editing and no interviews with the passengers. That would be the one improvement.

No compliants. Marine Dynamics boat from what I observed was the best of the operators in this town. The others were not up to par no even close. The facilities were more than I expected to be honest as well. The transfer from Cape town was ontime and professional. I would advise to take a digital waterproof camera instead of the disposable because taking pictures in the cage with one is more diffucult than you would think. Also do yourself a favor and dont eat the bruch they offer if you get seasick. 8 to 10 people on my trip were sick and it sort of kills the atmosphere when you are sitting next to a bunch of people hacking into bags. If you get seasick dont go on one of these trips. leave yourself some flexibilty as my trip was cancelled due to weather and rescheduled for another day. The time in the cage is adequate although on my particular trip the visibilty was limited a few feet which doesnt give you much time to snap any pictures. Overall i would recommend this company to anyone thinking about trying this out while visiting South Africa.
