Full description
This half-day tour, just outside Cape Town, allows you to see a variety of shark species throughout the year according to the seasons, weather, water temperature, and other factors. Venture to Seal Island or Cape Point to see seven-gill cow sharks, mako sharks, blue sharks, and great white sharks. The location for the day will be determined by the best shark activity and sea conditions and will be confirmed with you the day before your trip.

The cage accommodates four guests comfortably and is fixed to the boat just above the surface of the water.

it was a really nice and at the same time fascinating experience. In order to award 5 stars, a few small things might have to be optimized. But absolutely to be recommended.
