Shark Cage Diving with African Shark Eco-Charters and Cape Town Hunting Safaris and Tours

Join a great white shark trip with scuba gear with African Shark Eco-Charters and Cape Town Hunting Safaris and Tours for a thrilling day at sea.

Why choose African Shark Eco-Charters and Cape Town Hunting Safaris and Tours?

  • The sharks are here from February-October. Why travel 2.5hrs if Simons Town is 40 min from Cape Town.
  • We are the only operator to use scuba on all trips with no diving experience necessary. We snorkel and use scuba gear. Only 2 at a time in the shark cage. This is a major plus. It really is a disadvantage to you, our guests, to have to hold your breath only, and miss out staying a full 20 min underwater, missing out seeing a shark that passes by because you have had to take a breath on the surface.
  • Shark Expert and owner Rob Lawrence will be aboard almost every trip. His passion and love for the sharks is so evident and this is passed onto the guests.
  • We have a dedicated marine biologist on board.
  • Small groups of 8-12 people only, and 4 crew members.
  • Our trips are longer. The AM trip is 5.5hrs, not 3.5 like many others. Spend more time with the great white sharks, dive for longer, and have a more enjoyable trip.
  • We are shark friendly. We do not bash the sharks against the cage like many other operators, to illicit thrills from the guests. We do not use shark liver as bait.
  • We aim to show your guests sharks in the most natural eco-friendly way as possible.
  • We also offer shark breaching trips in season
  • We are the only False Bay operator to be accredited by "Fair Trade in Tourism". Your shark cage diving experience is managed in an ethical and socially responsible manner.
  • We are an eco-sensitive operation attracting serious shark lovers, photographers, film crew as well as guests wanting a quality trip.
  • Experience Shark cage diving and breaching all on one trip.
  • False Bay is home to the breaching great white sharks. It is a protected bay and we are not as affected by bad winter storms as are some other areas.

We offer SCUBA DIVING and no diving experience is necessary. In fact, we are the only company to offer scuba diving on every trip (weather permitting). All dive gear is provided. On all our trips we have a shark expert and/or a marine biologist on board.

  • No dive experience necessary. All dive gear supplied. We use SCUBA GEAR and snorkel.
  • Light Lunch, snacks & refreshments on board.
  • AM trip max 12 per boat. PM trip max 10.
  • Trips are weather permitting and are subject to cancellations based on bad weather.
  • In this event a full refund is offered.

Booking is essential! We require credit card details and deposit to secure a booking.
Transfers are extra. If you have book a tour with us (Cape Town Hunting Safaris and Tours) no charge on transfer.

Time:

07h00-12h30

  • Meet at Simons Town Pier 06.45. Trip departs 07h00 sharp as this is when the breaching and predation activity is best at first light.
  • The first part of the morning is spent observing this natural activity and then the rest is on cage diving.
  • On many of our trips you will get to see Southern Right Whales, schools of dolphins and penguins and you can witness over 64 000 seals on Seal Island. We also see pelagic birds on some of our trips.
What to bring:
  • Rain/wind jacket
  • Sun block and Hat
  • Camera (we sell disposable underwater camera's)
  • Take sea sick tablets if need be.

We do our best to find sharks and have a very high success rate, but, sharks are wild animals and guests do need to understand that sightings and activity can vary from day to day. Even during peak season there may be days when we do not see any breaching or predatory events. Our Guests need to aware of this, so you do not arrive with unrealistic expectations. Rather come hoping to see these natural events, than expecting. Shark cage diving depends on sea/weather conditions and shark activity around the boat. No refunds will be made for non-sightings. We will however offer you a voucher for another trip. Vouchers are not given if we have shark sightings on the trip but are unable to dive.

We advise you to take the necessary sea sick medication and refrain from over indulging with alcohol the day before as this will result in you being very sea sick and not enjoying your trip. We do not offer a "sea sick" discount.

We are a licensed permit holder and belong to "The Great White Shark Protection Foundation".
We only take only 8-12 guests on the boat so you can enjoy a comfortable trip in a more personal and exclusive environment.
All our crew is highly qualified personnel who have spent years working on boats and with sharks.
