Unfortunately we did not see any great whites, however we saw plenty of bronze whaler sharks. The cage diving is fun but be prepared for quite a bumpy ride depending on the sea. We really got shook around in the cage and at times this made it difficult to see the sharks, however we did get plenty of face to face viewings of the sharks! This has been on my bucket list for years and I’m glad to have done it but will need to go again as I want to see great whites! It’s a bit rushed as you are required to get into the cage quickly to ensure their is enough time for everyone to have a go.
Had a great time doing this tour: Everything was well organized, the guides were knowledgeable, beautiful drive down to Hermanus, the whales were amazing to watch! Two recommendations: 1) Book through the local partner directly as it's about 20 pounds cheaper than booking through this website. 2) Book the whale watching boat tour as a combo package with your trip to Hermanus as it will save you some money too.
We had great guide/driver who knew a lot and has a great sense of humor. The day was beautiful as well as the surroundings. Only downside was, that there was little time to enjoy the view when stopping & getting out to see the view (for pictures). Quickly taking pics and getting back in the bus seemed to be the goal. This instead of enjoying the great surroundings. But all in all, a great day!
On the way to Hermanus we drove through a permanently changing countryside. Very entertaining to look out of the window. In Hermanus we walked along the coast with a beautiful view on the wales. Our guide was very nice. On the way back we visited the pinguins and he drove along the seaside back to Capetown Telinho us a lot about locals.
Great experience! We didn’t see any great white sharks but our guide was still super knowledgeable and we were able to see other types of sharks.
