Shark Cage Diving in Plett in December

Hello

My husband and I will be staying just outside Plett in December and would like to go shark cage diving while there. I have read though that the winter months are the best time to see the sharks can anyone advise whether it would still be worth doing in December.

We are staying in CT also but understand that it's around 21/2 hour drive to Gansbaai which seems to be the best place for this activity the travelling distance has put me off doing from CT.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Kathy

Hi Kathy,

Best would be to look at a day trip to Mossel Bay - which has the closest shark cage diving company.

Have a look at these reviews on Trip Advisor: tripadvisor.co.za/Attraction_Review-g317080-…

Enjoy your holiday

Yes, winter is best but you can still do it and see sharks in summer.

By staying in Plettenburg Bay and driving to Mosselbay to do the cage dive is very much the same as spending your time in Cape Town and driving to Gansbaai to do the cage dive. And Gansbaai is the no 1 shark cage diving spot along the coast of South Africa.

You will still see sharks in December in Gansbaai, the visibility however tends not to be very good. That is why winter is better. I am not sure if that applies in Plett as well but it might be a factor.

Hi Kathy

There is no shark cage diving in Plettenberg Bay.

The closet to Plett where shark cage diving is in Mossel Bay which is about a 2 hr drive from Plett
