Ready to take the plunge? Cape Town, Gansbaai and Mosselbay are the three places within South Africa which offer this astonishing and adrenaline pumping activity. All of these three locations are easily accessible – Gansbaai is located very near to Cape Town, and Mossebay is a small town, located in the Southern Cape, along the Garden Route, roughly 400km East of Cape Town. Diving for South Africa’s great white sharks is the main desire for shark cage divers. You will have the opportunity to view these mighty creatures at the surface of the water, from the comfort of a boat as well as two meters below the surface of the water from a secure metal cage.
False Bay and Sea Island in Cape Town, Diaz Beach in Mosselbay as well as Gansbaai are great places to participate in shark cage diving as many great white sharks roam the waters in those areas. However, if you do not plan on travelling to Cape Town, Mosselbay or Gansbaai but plan on visiting KwaZulu Natal, you will still have many opportunities to shark cage dive in the Indian ocean. Here you will encounter different sharks such as the tiger, Zambezi and blacktip shark.
