Shark Cage Diving Cape Town

A Mako shark off Cape Point

While we have had a slow start to our Great White shark cage diving at Seal Island, South Africa this year, our pelagic shark cage diving trips have been, in a word, sensational.

On our first trip, we attracted a small Mako shark to the boat and this continued relentlessly! In total we saw five female Mako sharks and two juvenile Blue sharks. A week later, on another trip offshore we came across a pod of Common dolphins. We were already excited about the dolphin sighting, but we could not have anticipated that our first Blue shark would appear within ten minutes of chumming the waters!

It was shark mania around the boat with 10-15 Blue sharks and two Makos, including one of the females from the last pelagic trip.

With two fantastic pelagic shark cage diving trips under our belt, we are keeping our fingers crossed and hope to start our Great White shark cage diving trips just outside Cape Town soon.
