Mossel Bay Shark Cage Diving
Mossel Bay lies in one of the most beautiful parts of South Africa, the Garden Route. Board our boat for a short 2km ride out to Seal Island which is located in the bay. The bay is very protected and great white shark trips take place here nearly daily. The water is warmer than in Gansbaai and Simons Town making it possible to do the cage without a wetsuit on a nice summers day. There is only one boat that operates in the area. They depart daily from the busy fishing harbour to bring tourists and divers an up-close and personal experience with the ultimate predator!
Great White Sharks have always fascinated humans for various reasons. Perhaps it is their imposing size, their graceful beauty:- perfectly adapted to their environment, patrolling our oceans since the beginning of time… Their powerful predatory behavior instilling pure fear in our hearts… or perhaps it is the mysteries surrounding this spectacular shark that beckons us to come closer and closer…..
If you are one of those….. who would like to come just that little bit closer, to experience the Great White Shark in its natural environment above or under water or perhaps just learn a bit more about them and us. You have come to the right place.
