Shark Cage Diving

Shark Cage Diving is a nature adventure experience that is guaranteed to send a chill down your spine. The small fishing village of Gansbaai is a two hour scenic drive from Cape Town and widely known as the shark capital of the world.


From Gansbaai you will travel by boat to the shark grounds where the experience of sharing the waters with one or more of these feared apex predators awaits you.

Competent and experienced Shark Cage Diving operators will introduce you to the magnificent Great White Shark, in it’s own habitat, and will ensure your safety at all times. A percentage of the proceeds from this experience will go towards research regarding sharks.

Book your Shark Cage Diving experience through Cape Adventure Zone and we ensure that your shark cage adventure is with a company that gives back to nature through science.

After a scenic drive from Cape Town, your Cape adventure tour begins at the picturesque Kleinbaai Harbour just outside Gansbaai. This is the launch area for all cage diving operations and can be a hive of adventure activity on a beautiful morning. Geyser Rock and Dyer Island (also known as Shark Alley) is situated approximately 10 km offshore and it is here where you will meet face to face with the our great apex predator. This area has earned worldwide fame for being one of the most prolific shark viewing sites in the world, almost guaranteeing sightings on every trip.

Safety is of utmost importance to us. We ensure our operators have all the necessary qualifications. All skippers, dive masters and crew are highly experienced and are always happy to share their expertise with you.
