About Shark Zone
For a memorable and unique Cape Town adventure, nothing can be more exhilarating than a cage diving and surface viewing tour to meet the mighty great white shark. One of the few places in the world where white sharks can be observed regularly at any time of the year, Gansbaai is known as the shark diving capital of the world. The watery habitat of the apex predator is not glamorous and this tour is highly weather dependent - this is mother nature at her most temperamental and raw; only when you see your first flash of steely grey sliding purposefully towards the boat, will you understand the magnetic beauty of the great white shark. Indescribable. No previous diving experience is necessary to enter the cage and everything you will need to fully enjoy the tour is provided, from your meals, to your dive equipment and even the convenient and comfy shuttle that Shark Zone can provide to get you there. As Cape Town's #1 booking agent for great white shark tours, Shark Zone will make sure you get the best deal, hassle-free!

Shark cage diving & viewing tours in Gansbaai

While there are wealth of shark viewing and diving opportunities in South Africa, Gansbaai and Shark Alley in particular, is one of the best areas to experience sharks in their natural habitat.

Shark Alley is a channel of water between two islands: Dyer Island and Geyser Rock. As Dyer Island is home to 50 000 Cape Fur seals, it provides ample hunting opportunities for the apex predator.

This is a bucket list experience for you to go eye to eye with the worlds greatest predator.

With the Dyer Island Group nearby, and home to 50 000 cape fur seals, it is the world’s capital for Great White sharks. Boasting the largest population of these majestic creatures year-round, shark cage diving and shark viewing trips are a must!

Shark Cage Diving & Viewing Tour in Mossel Bay

Mossel Bay is a very rich area with its abundant sea life of diverse fish, seals, whales, penguins, other sea birds, dolphins, the occasional orca and, of course, the Great White Sharks. For this reason we decided to base our shark cage diving headquarters on the Garden Route of South Africa. The predominant dive spot is Shark Island.

Shark Cage Diving & Viewing in False Bay

Spending over 200 days at sea each year
means we're able to give our guests the most natural encounter with sharks possible.

We specialize in small groups and our Eco-friendly approach to expeditions
ensures an intimate and educational experience when choosing Shark Zone.

Our dedicated team love what they do. It’s their passion and expertise that makes each expedition a personal and highly rewarding one. Our approach to our Great White shark expeditions showcases both the sharks and the environment in which they live, offering guests a deeper understanding of these magnificent animals.

There are also good months for seeing multiple species together, but these may be out of peak months for special behavior. July is a fantastic month to see the Great Whites hunting seals. It is however, not the best month for seeing dolphins or Southern Right Whales. If you choose mid to late August there is a good chance to see both natural predation Southern Right Whales.

I liked the experience and the company very much. They were always in touch prior to the trip answering all kinds of questions. The trip was nice, the crew great, videographer with a great sense of humor took videos that we got. I was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast and lunch we were offered. Well organized. The company is definitely recommended. As for experience I would like to have some more :) It was quite quick for me and not enough to enjoy to the fullest. May be will try again one day.
