White Pointer II is specially designed shark cage diving vessel. She complies with all safety requirements and Great White Shark permit conditions. We send the boat for annual safety inspections. Safety equipment includes life jackets, first aid kit, radio and cellular phone.
The upper viewing deck comfortably accommodates 6 guests.
White Pointer II is 36ft long with a fully enclosed wrap-around cabin. The curved windscreens offer superb visibility from inside the cabin. There are cushioned seats, a flush toilet and ample dry storage lockers.
She is powered by two 250 HP, 4-stroke Honda engines. These match a quiet, stable ride with speed and fuel efficiency.
Built with photography in mind, the vessel allows guests 360 degree walk-around opportunities, as well as a fly bridge for alternate angles.
The Marlin doors allow for easy access for divers entering and exiting the cage.
The cage is firmly attached to our boat with two thick ropes. The bottom of the cage lies two metres below the surface.
The cage is equipped with many independent flotation devices to provide buoyancy, keeping about 80 centimetres of the cage above the water at all times.
Our cage is constructed with galvanised steel and has passed all shark cage diving permit conditions. It is a spacious five person cage that floats right next to the boat enabling us to communicate with you while you're in the cage. Specially designed doors ensure ease of access for divers. Getting into the cage is as simple as stepping off the boat.
All shark cage diving is done under the supervision of an experienced crew who have first aid & oxygen management, scuba & commercial skippers' qualifications and have expert knowledge of the behaviour of sharks around the cage.
The cage has a lid to further enhance your safety. After you have entered the cage, the lid is closed.
Diving is on breath-hold or snorkel. There is no experience required. Although we don't recommend it, certified divers may request air and this is supplied by means of a hookar system.
The cage boasts 35cm high camera ports with a hand rail.
The cage bottom boasts a grid with a foot bar to assist divers staying submerged.
