OUR MOTTO

CARE | PROTECT | EDUCATE

CARE

We care because we are privileged to enjoy a large number of marine species along our coastline.

PROTECT

We protect so as to conserve and keep our marine resources and species alive for future generations to appreciate as well.

EDUCATE

We educate our youth as they are our future and only hope in saving our magnificent yet fragile planet.

WHAT WE STAND BY

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Owing to massive negative media publicity over the years, the Great White Shark has become one of the most maligned, misunderstood, even hated animals on our fragile planet.
It has been pursued, hunted and indiscriminately killed, over the years, to the point where its continued existence hangs in precarious balance.

If we can dispel some of the hype and myth, and the fear which surrounds this magnificent creature, and even if through our operation, we only introduce some element of objective perspective to the people that we come into contact with, then we have, at least, made some contribution to maintaining the natural balance in at least one ecosystem, in our communal home, Earth.

YOU MIGHT HAVE SOME QUESTIONS:

Cozzie (swimwear), sunblock, towel, hat, dry clothing, warm jacket.

The boat sets off on a 15-20 minute journey before anchoring either in the famous Shark Alley or nearby. 

The boat is at sea for roughly 2,5 to 3 hours depending on the weather and ocean conditions. Onboard you can enjoy the complimentary mineral water, snacks and drinks. No alcohol or smoking is allowed on any of the shark cage diving boats in Gansbaai.

No. Many guests choose not to cage dive – the viewing from the boat is exceptional and as a non-diver, you will also have an awesome experience!

Absolutely. We are the oldest operator in the industry (RSA) with over 30 years experience. We have a 100% safety record. We are professionals, and know exactly how to operate in a safe and responsible manner.
