Breaching & Shark Diving in Gansbaai
Your excursion to Geyser and Dyer islands begins at the picturesque Kleinbaai Harbour, Gansbaai near Cape Town. The launching slip way of this small harbour, being the point of entry for all cage diving expeditions to the islands, becomes a beehive of activity on clear mornings. All dive equipment, towels and snacks are stocked, safety equipment, safety equipment is checked and the boats are fuelled prior to passengers' arrival.
Shark Cage Diving
The boat leaves the harbour at about 08h45 or 12h45 and takes 15 to 20 minutes to reach the channel between Geyser and Dyer islands. It normally takes about an hour of chumming and baiting before the first great white hones in on the bait with deadly accuracy - (sharks use their sense of smell and unique sense of electro-reception to detect the movement of the fibrous rope in the water.) A dorsal fin and part of the tail silently slice up through the water, leaving barely a wake; the ominous fins lock in on the boat. The undisputed lord of the deep has arrived! Experience the best shark dive in South Africa.
