Directions and Map

Aptly named “little bay” in Afrikaans, this modest fishing area is partly to thank for Gansbaai’s eco-tourism fame. Here is where you’ll set off to view Great Whites breaching, only a few kilometres from our cage diving sites. The charming natural harbour epitomises our environmentally friendly operation standards.

The coastal suburb also boasts places of interest for locals and holiday makers alike. Loungers are offered enticing tidal pools and picturesque picnic spots. Outdoor lovers can fish in fertile locations or explore scenic hiking trails. Sports enthusiasts have access to a 9-hole golf course, squash court and recreational hall. Moreover, convenience stores, tourist shops and petrol stations mean you needn’t go far to purchase a few essentials.
