Introduction

See Shark Breaching & Hunting As Close As It Gets

Witness first hand an apex predator leaping through the ocean’s surface in pursuit of prey. This incredible hunting technique astounds onlookers. Normal shark cage diving activities then commence. No two trips are ever the same!

Breaching is subject to conditions such as season and shark activity. Breaching Packages are therefore only available during South African winter months (June to August), when breaching is most likely to occur.

We keep our shark cage dive tours small and intimate, maximizing individual diving time and safety for all of our guests. We take a maximum number of twelve guests on these trips, and a minimum of six. Should we not be able to confirm the breaching part of the trip due to natural circumstances or demand, we will advise you accordingly and allow you to convert your booking to a regular shark cage diving trip if you wish.

We have a 98% shark sighting success rate through the year, however, please bear in mind that sightings of wild animals can never be guaranteed. In the unfortunate event that you do not have shark sightings during your trip, we do not offer refunds but we will provide you with a voucher (valid for two years) allowing you to join us for another trip free of charge on a date of your choice (dependent on availability).

*Exact times vary due to seasons, tides, sea and weather conditions, number of daily trips, shark activities, etc. The final/24 hour weather and sea report will be reviewed on the day prior to the dive and the trip time schedule and subsequent transport pick-up times will be advised via e-mail on the day before the dive.

Included:

  • Pre-trip breakfast/lunch and beverages on arrival.
  • Safety briefing followed by the breaching tour, after which we will anchor for shark cage diving and close sightings of the magnificent Great Whites.
  • All diving equipment including wetsuits, hoodies, booties and towels (although you’re welcome to bring your own).
  • Underwater digital camera rental, including memory card containing your footage (which you can take home).
  • The service of our experienced crew, including our onboard videographer.
  • Self-service refreshments and snacks such as crisps or nuts onboard.
  • Viewing of the video footage taken of your trip with the option to purchase a copy.
  • Warm post-dive lunch served at our premises. Alternative meal options can be arranged for clients with specific dietary requirements.
