We make use of salmon offcuts. The fins and bones that are not used by the restaurant industry comes to us to use as bait.

Our boat, Barracuda, is licensed to accommodate 30 guests and 6 crew members.

Children 12 years and older are welcome to experience the cage dive.

Children under 12 are welcome aboard but are encouraged to view the sharks from the deck only.

We do not work on how much time you spend in the cage, but rather how much you see. This ensures that everyone gets a fair chance of seeing sharks from both inside the cage and from the boat.

You are welcome to bring your own camera along. If you do not have your own camera, our videographer makes a video of the trip which is up for sale afterwards. Also check our social media pages for pictures from the trips. You can follow us on Instagram with the handle @capesharkadventures or Cape Shark Adventures Gansbaai on Facebook.

In our selected dive area, we are lucky to have Copper Shark sightings all year round.

Starting times depend on weather conditions and the ocean tides. We will confirm the starting time with you the day before the trip.

Although sightings are plentiful, they cannot be guaranteed. In the unlikely event you do not see any sharks on your trip, please chat to our team on the day to arrange for you to join us again on an alternate day, free of charge.

A light breakfast/brunch and light lunch is served before and after the dives. We also provide bottled water on the boat.

Yes. We provide wetsuits, booties, and dive masks.

We accept bookings until 16h00 the day before the trip is scheduled

The sightings from the boat are incredible and you are welcome to enjoy your tour from the deck without getting in the cage.

Our crew have years of experience on the water and are all well-trained. Please visit the About page on our website to read more about our crew members.

We are able to view Dyer Island up close from the boat as part of a Sea Safari tour. Please contact us to enquire about prices.

Gansbaai is located in the Atlantic Ocean. The predominant winds in the region vary during our austral winters (mainly north-westerly) and summers (mainly south-easterly), hence pushing the colder / warmer waters closer to shore or further offshore. As a result, our water is generally warmer during our winters (generally 15-20 degrees Celsius or 59-68 degrees Fahrenheit) than during our summers (generally 10-15 degrees Celsius or 50-59 degrees Fahrenheit).
