Well known for the footage on NAT GEO, Discovery and the BBC for the breaching of great white sharks. Here you are able to see the great white or prehistoric broad nose seven gill shark up close and personal from the comfort of the cage. Duration between 4 and 5 hours. 

Blue and Mako offshore Diving: Meet the fastest fish in the water, the Mako shark as well as the curious blue shark. This dive is on scuba but if you do not have a scuba certification and the cage is not daring enough, join us on this dive while snorkelling and meet these two amazing sharks outside of a cage. Duration is between 6 to 8 hours.

Inshore seal and Kelp forest Diving: This is dive takes you to the seals and the magical kelp forest where you will meet Cape Town’s endemic shark species. This adventure can be done on Scuba as well as snorkelling should you not be scuba certified. Duration is between 4 to 5 hours.
