About
See feared predators in a shark cage dive for the ultimate adrenaline rush or just enjoy the action from the deck, on an exclusive private day trip to Gansbaai. No previous diving experience is necessary and equipment plus instruction will be provided. Avoid the crowds and explore at your own pace with a friendly, professional tour guide in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle. We take the scenic route up Sir Lowry's Pass with a pitstop at the top and then on to Gansbaai harbour where the boat departs. After the boat trip, drive home along the picturesque Gordon's Bay sea route, stopping at the Stony Point penguin colony on the way - time permitting. This round trip is a must for first time visitors to the Cape Peninsula. Drop off at your accommodation at the end of a great experience. * NB - the cost of the shark dive experience is extra (R2550 per person)

What to expect
  • This private, full-day tour of Gansbaai starts with a pickup from your Cape Town Hotel. Because this is a private tour, departure times are flexible, and must be worked out in advance. Once you’ve been picked up from your hotel by an air-conditioned vehicle, relax on the ride over to Gansbaai — it’ll take about two hours. Take in sights on the way of Sir Lowry’s Pass, Elgin valley, and Houwhoek Pass. In Gansbaai, your exciting shark-diving experience begins. Please note an extra fee needs to be paid for the cage diving, and isn’t included in this tour’s cost. If for some reason, the weather doesn’t allow for cage diving you can choose to go ziplining or ATVing instead. Otherwise, board a boat, and listen to instructions about how to safely cage dive. Then get your equipment on and get ready to go. Your cage is dropped into the water, and you can spend about three hours watching sharks swim in their natural habitat. Afterward, choose one of three activities to do on the way back to Cape Town. Walk the cliffs of Hermanus, wine taste in Overberg, or visit a penguin colony at Stoney Point. Whatever you pick, your guide drives you to your hotel at the end of the day. Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.

Shark Diving and More!
Nov. 2019
Mike was very prompt for the early morning pickup and attentive to our needs for the shark diving adventure. He kept our bags safe while we went out on the boat to see the sharks in the area. The great white sharks aren't promised, but we did see many sharks that were very close to the cage!! After diving, Mike took us on a scenic ride back and stopped at a winery for a tasting because we had expressed interest. We also stopped to pet the cheetahs at the Cheetah conservation. A very special time in Cape Town and a highly recommended Born in Africa tour company and Mike the guide.

Shark diving tour and more!
Nov. 2019 • Friends
Mike was an awesome tour guide for the Shark Cage Diving. He picked us up early morning and we arrived plenty early. He watched our backpacks and was very interesting to talk with. One they way back we took a different scenic route and stopped at a winery for a tasting. Mike made sure we had what we needed from the tour and then some! Highly recommend Out of Africa for your tour guides!

Best Tour Company I’ve Ever Had!!
Oct. 2019 • Friends
Dave was an incredible tour guide! He picked us up from our location for our Shark Diving tour - he answered all questions we had about the tour, provided us with WONDERFUL conversation and made sure we were comfortable at all times. During our tour, we saw 5 Great White sharks, 20+ Copper head sharks, seals and a Southern right whale - it was a fantastic day!

He was extremely polite, respectful and really fun - he truly was a huge part in making our trip to South Africa so fantastic! I cannot recommend this company enough - not only was Dave respectful and courteous, but extremely kind, professional and light hearted.

.... as a bonus, he also owns a sleek JAG, which is what you will be picked up in!

Shark Diving Private Day Tour
We booked a trip to go on the shark diving excursion. There were some problems because of the weather and it was postponed but Dave went out of his way to make it happen for us on the day. Dave made alternative arrangements right away and we still managed to get to see the sharks. No problem for Dave. So nice that he went to the extra effort for us.
Great day out. Highly recommend Dave Coxford. Friendly, helpful and goes the extra mile to make it a pleasure experience.
