More about Shark Cage Diving

The charming town of Gansbaai is a welcome retreat for weary travellers and those looking to escape the city. This town boasts diverse flora and fauna, plenty of wildlife experiences such as whale watching and shark cage diving, as well as an inspiring coastline perfect for a boat trip.

This shark cage diving experience is a thrilling day out at sea and includes a convenient one-way transfer. Once kitted with a wetsuit and given a snack, get ready for a scenic boat trip to Dyer Island followed by an up-close diving encounter with sharks from the safety of your cage.

5 stars - the transfer arrived on time, and the van was great. They texted and emailed one day prior to tell us when to be ready. We arrived right on time to Marine Dynamics for the shark dive (even though we hit two spots of traffic) and we had an AMAZING time once on the dive itself. The lunch was good, and the briefing with Kelly, the marine biologist on board, gave us a lot of great information and set a lot of expectations about what would happen once we were on the boat and in the water. Everything happened just as communicated and they made a special effort to accommodate my daughter and make this a once-in-a-lifetime experience for her, since cage diving with great whites was the #1 item on her bucket list! Kelly and the other volunteers were exceptional, passionate about their jobs and the animals, and the company is all about conservation and education. Highly recommend using Marine Dynamics for your shark diving experience when in South Africa - thank you!
