Great Whites & Great Wines – Shark Cage Diving & Wine Tasting Overview
Your private driver-guide will collect you from your accommodation in Cape Town and you’ll head straight through to Gansbaai, known by many as Great White Shark capital of the world. When you get to Gansbaai you’ll meet up at shark cage diving HQ for a short safety briefing and an update on the conditions on the water. When everyone is ready you’ll hop onboard your vessel for the day for an exhilarating 20-minute boat ride to the waters around the famous Dyer Island. Here you’ll learn about the “Marine Big 5” which includes whales, great white sharks, dolphins, seals, and penguins.
Gansbaai is one of the few places in the world that Great White Sharks can be seen year-round but during the summer months the sharks keep close to shore and during winter they move to Shark Alley, a nearby channel created by two islands. Dyer Island, with its endangered African Penguins and migrating bird colonies, and Geyser Rock with its resident colony of 60,000 Cape Fur Seals.
Once you’ve anchored you?ll get another short briefing and then take your turn to slip into the shark cage for an adrenaline-fuelled brush with a great white shark. The experienced crew will be on hand to share their knowledge of the marine world and show you what to do when getting into and out of the cage. This secure metal cage is the closest place in the world where you can safely see these apex predators in their natural environment. Not only will you come back with incredible memories but you will also come away knowing a lot more about sharks and what is being done to aid their conservation.
Once everyone has had a go you?ll head back to HQ for debriefing and breakfast. You can hop into a hot shower and enjoy a continental breakfast before departing to the nearby Stanford region, the Hemel en Aarde Valley or Bot River Valley for a leisurely afternoon of wine tasting and lunch. All three regions offer superb wine tasting and excellent restaurants for those that have built up a hunger after an active and adventurous morning!
