Shark Diving Cape Town

Shark diving Cape Town takes place from the Simon’s Town harbour. Simons Town is a beautiful harbour town, a mere 50-minute drive from Cape Town Central. Here, near Cape Town, you can dive with the majestic, sleek Blue and Mako Sharks. This activity is suitable for snorkelers and scuba divers.

Shark Diving Cape Town Dive Tour

This dive trip is aimed at spotting and diving with Blue and Mako sharks, 25 nautical miles off the coast of Simon’s Town. However, we also often, but not guaranteed, experience some other awesome marine creatures on this tour. These animals include some large pelagic game fish, sea birds, whales and dolphins. The season officially opens in November but the best time to do this dive is from February to June. This shark dive tour is a long one, and sometimes the wait for sharks can be up to 3 hours. The reward is worth it though! Tours are highly weather dependant, so we suggest that you keep a couple of days open in your dairy instead of setting out just one day.
