Cage safety

The cage is firmly attached to our boat with two thick ropes. The bottom of the cage lies two metres below the surface.

Buoyancy

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.

Cage construction

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.

Cage Lid

The cage has a lid to further enhance your safety. After you have entered the cage, the lid is closed.

Diving

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.

Shark viewing

The cage boasts 35cm high camera ports with a hand rail.

Footing

The cage bottom boasts a grid with a foot bar to assist divers staying submerged.
