168 km from the Hyde - Great White Shark cage diving in Cape Town and Gansbaai, South Africa is the number 1 for most on their bucket list! This is one of the greatest experiences that you will ever experience being only inches away from a Great White Shark protected by a steel cage. The best place in the world for the shark cage diving is Gansbaai at Shark Alley which is a channel of water between two Islands Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, 4 miles offshore from Kleinbaai. Geyser Rock has a huge population of 60,000 Cape Fur seals and Dyer Island hosts many bird species as well as a colony of Penguins.
The boats work on both Islands and in the channel where the Great White Sharks roam. Fish heads, Pilchards, Anchovy oil and other fish products are used to entice the sharks to the boat. The Sharks already in the area and the crew on the boat work hard to attract the sharks and keep them interested in the boat and the divers in the cage rather than looking for prey. Should you wish to see a Great White Shark launch (breach) out the water which is famously known in False Bay as 'Air Jaws' then Seal Island near Cape Town is the prime place in the world for this.
