When making a booking for shark cage diving it is important that you have realistic expectations. If you want to see a specific shark or observe different behaviour, we'll happily advise you on the best times to book for the best chance of seeing that shark or behaviour.
There is a huge variety of other marine wildlife in False Bay and many of these animals are only seen at certain times of the year. There are also good months for seeing multiple species together, but these may be out of peak months for special behaviour. As an example, July is a fantastic month to see the Great Whites hunting seals. It is however, not the best month for seeing dolphins or Southern Right Whales. If you choose mid to late August there is a good chance to see both natural predation Southern Right Whales.
Sharks are wild animals and free to roam wherever they please. Each shark has its own personality - some choose to interact and some don't. We do our absolute best to find sharks on each trip, but we cannot force the sharks to appear at our boat. False Bay, however, does offer fantastic opportunities to see sharks all year round.
