Any information on doing this dive would be appreciated as I am in the UK and I am trying to save up for my wife and I to Dive in a cage to see these beautiful Sharks. So Prices of the Dive,Pick up from Cape Town, how far in advance would you book? What if you book the holiday and there is no dive spaces? or do you book the dive first then book the Holiday around this? I would have to book for the end of July/beginning of August is this a good time? How much is it to get to Cape Town from UK? All information welcomed, I am now 52 years old and have been wanting to see a Great White shark since I was a child. Thank you in advance Mark
