Gansbaai, a small fishing town nestled between rolling mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, was formerly known as the Mecca of the Great White Shark. Our expert team at Cape Shark Adventures will take you on a thrilling shark cage diving experience, where you’ll meet and learn about copper sharks, seals, penguins, stingrays and (between June and November) possibly even whales and great white sharks!
Gansbaai is a two-and-a-half hour drive along a beautiful road from Cape Town International Airport. Beyond Cape Town’s city centre, a host of sun-soaked, nature-driven experiences await – including the best shark cage diving to be found along the rugged coastline.
The Great White Shark and other shark species found around our coast are the subject of ground-breaking research. Young scientists and university students from around the world gain valuable experience in the field for their careers in marine science in these waters.
