Cage diving with Sharks

Posted on Thursday, 9 January 2020

The Great White shark sightings have been on the decline in the last few years however in the absence of the Great white shark, other species of sharks have moved in and have kept the cage diving industry operational. 


Cage Diving with sharks Cape Town

The trip today was a Planet Earth trip. The shark boat anchored in pristine conditions with water clarity of 5- 6 meters. That's really good for False Bay in the summer months. We did not have to wait long before we encountered our first shark for the day, a Sevengill shark, in fact one of four different. The guests were delighted as the shark cage divers enjoyed excellent sightings from the shark cage due to the water clarity.  To add to the activity was the resident stingray who put on a great show.

On the way back to Simon's Town, we came upon a small pod of common dolphins! The water temp was a very warm 19.5 degrees Celcius.  We have space for the shark diving trip tomorrow. Book your spot now.


Cage Diving with Sharks Gansbaai

A little breezy out there this morning however the sunshine and sharks made up for it! Anchored in Joubertsdam, the guests who were mostly from Germany enjoyed good sightings of Bronze whalers AKA Copper sharks. Another unusual sighting for this location was the Seven Gill Shark. The water clarity was good at 2 meters and the water temperature was a warm 19.3 degrees Celcius.



Cage Diving with Sharks Mossel Bay

This location unfortunatley has not seen a Great White shark or any shark species for over two months.  This should change any day now. If you are in the area of the Garden route and would prefer Mossel Bay for your shark diving trip, please contact us on apexmarketing@mweb.co.za
