What will you see Shark Diving Mossel Bay?

Cage diving in Mossel Bay will bring you up close and personal to Great white sharks. You might also see the Hammerhead Shark and of course, you will be viewing the small rock island called Seal Island. This island is heavily populated with seals which is a great food source for great white sharks. Shark sightings are not guaranteed but if you don’t see any sharks at all, you can go again for free. Currently during the start of 2021, Mossel Bay has had the highest sightings rate of all destinations in South Africa.

2 to 3 Hours at Sea Shark Diving

Shark Diving Mossel Bay Trip Summary

Your shark dive meeting point is at our office in central Mossel Bay, near the harbour. Meeting times are usually between 7am, and 10am, depending mostly on the weather and tides. You will be given the exact times by our office the day before the tour.

Step into our office an hour before the boat launch time to enjoy coffee and breakfast while listening to the dive and safety briefing. After this, we take a short walk to the harbour. The boat launches for the 2km ride to the shark hotspot, Seal Island. As Mossel Bay has the most accessible white sharks globally, the ride is only 10 minutes.

Cage Diving

After anchoring, the crew will start chumming and put the cage in the water when the first shark arrives. The cage does not go underwater completely and is tied directly next to the boat. When you are in the cage, your head sticks out above the water with the boat directly behind you.

All the equipment needed to cage dive is included and ready for you on the boat. We have wetsuits of all sizes, and no scuba qualification is necessary. Children from 12 years old can join in the cage diving fun.

If you decide to take the plunge and cage dive, you will get roughly 20 minutes on your first time in. You will almost certainly have a second chance to get in the cage.

After about 2 to 3 hours on the sea, we return to shore for afternoon tea and a light lunch. You also get a certificate (official bragging rights) of your day with the great white sharks.
