Full description

Discover the thrill of diving with sharks in a protective cage on this boat tour to Shark Alley. Choose from a tour with a pickup and drop-off service from Cape Town or Hermanus, or a tour with a meeting point at Kleinbaai Harbor. Enjoy breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks on your trip. 

On arrival, enjoy complimentary snacks with coffee or tea during the safety briefing on land and get fitted with your high-quality wetsuit. Embark on your cruise from Kleinbaai Harbor. Arrive at shark alley and watch as the boat is anchored and the sharks are lured by bait line to the cage. Watch the sharks from the deck of the boat while waiting to hop into the cage for your own unforgettable close encounter.

Sip on drinks and snacks on board while you warm up on the deck before having another underwater encounter with these awe-inspiring apex predators. No diving experience is necessary for this surface-level cage dive, it's as easy as holding your breath. Have your experience captured by an onboard cameraman and after viewing the day's footage back on land, while tucking into a hot meal, you can choose to purchase a souvenir USB.

- Transportation was difficult for us because of uncomfortable car. 3rd row (back seat) 2,5 hours with little space for legs - you can get sick on board of the jet very easy. I felt dizzy on such big waves as soon as we arrived the „shallows“ - the shark spot. The smell of salmon does not make it better - imagine you swim in the water with a smell of salmon. - visibility inside water was low : you see the sharks much better from the Board than in water . Cold water with low visibility . I felt so bad after this trip although it very professionally organized with great staff , foods and drinks! Very good service . But it is not for everyone with sea sickness

Perfect way to see sharks in the wild with a professional crew and respect for the animals. As a participant of the event we were very well looked after by the team and everything was perfectly organized. The team was very knowledgeable about the animals and area and make you feel comfortable. The encounter with the sharks cannot be described by words, but was in one word amazing. Highly advise the tour and organization, Marine Dynamics!

dieses Erlebnis war eine einmalige Erfahrung. Einen weißen Hai haben wir zwar nicht gesehen, aber dafür viele Bronzehaie. Tatsächlich hatten wir uns etwas mehr Adrenalin versprochen, aber da ist ja jeder anders. Es gab ein leichtes Frühstück, Mittagessen und Snacks und Kakao an Bord. Die Ausrüstung würde komplett gestellt.
