Morning Shark Diving Trips in Gaansbaai - Apr - Sep.

Shark- Shark Cage Diving in Gaansbaai
We depart at 7h00 from Simon’s Town which is only 45 minutes from Cape Town and return to Simon’s Town at 12h30.

This trip focuses on Natural predation and breaching as well as shark cage diving.

We specialize in small groups and take a maximum of 12 guests per trip. As the groups are small we are able to provide an intimate experience as well as having the opportunity to pass on our knowledge and passion for the sharks and the area.

A smaller group also allows for better viewing opportunities and a longer shark cage dive. The cage is fixed to the boat and guests are allowed to snorkel in the cage. In view of this, a diving certification is not necessary.

All trips include:
dive gear (sizes small to XXL are available).
light lunch, snacks, fruit and refreshments on board.
A return transfer can be organized from Cape Town

Bookings are essential as space is limited. All payment is to be made in South African Rand. We require credit card details to secure a booking. Please make sure to watch the exchange rate as this can fluctuate.

Please note: Great white sharks are completely wild animals and as such sightings cannot be guaranteed. We will use our best knowledge in order to give you the most realistic expectations before making a booking.

Shark Week 2012 - Apex Predators

Shark Week 2012
Shark Week 2012 on Discovery Channel will start the annual week long series of shark shows on 12 August 2012 at 9pm Eastern/Pacific in the USA.

The 25th Anniversary of Shark Week kicks off with AIR JAWS APOCALYPSE as the lead show. This new documentary was facilitated by Apex Shark Expeditions and was filmed at Seal Island, False Bay and in Gansbaai over the 2011 great white shark season. We are very proud that Chris Fallows is the host of this new documentary.  We also look forward to sharing some very uniquely filmed underwater great white shark footage as well as spectacular breaching manoeuvres. We also have a new camera innovation called “shark Spy” which enabled us to view natural shark behaviour underwater without disturbing the animals in any way.

Also look out for “HOW JAWS CHANGED THE WORLD”. This documentary explores exactly what the title intends and Chris Fallows along with a variety of other well-known shark experts provides some interesting anecdotes.

We’ll be posting the program schedules as soon as they are available.
