Shark and Whale Watching Combo
The shark cage dive takes place out at Dyer Island, roughly 15 minutes by boat from Kleinbaai Harbour. The island is home to a colony of over 50 000 Cape Fur Seals – the white shark’s favourite food and primary source of nutrition.
Running between Dyer and neighbouring Geyser Rock is a channel of ocean so frequented by great white sharks that it has been dubbed ‘Shark Alley’. This is where we anchor for an up-close encounter with great whites.
The cage is dropped at the diving site and guests are allocated diving gear. Guests take consecutive turns in the eight-man floating cage to experience thrilling underwater views of this majestic apex predator. When not in the cage, passengers can enjoy sightings of the white sharks and other sea life from the viewing deck of the boat.
The great white shark is a surface feeder and thus all the activity takes place on or very close to the surface, so surface viewing from the boat is excellent. We have a 95 – 98% sightings success rate across the year, although as with all wildlife, sightings can never be guaranteed
In Whale Season
Whale Watching Trips - (June To December)
Our whale watching trips take place from June to December however, should the whales change their migration schedule (arrive early and leave later) we will adjust our schedule accordingly. Generally the trip last 2 hrs, but can be longer depending on how quickly we find the whales.
At the start of the season we launch twice daily at 10am and 1pm, in main season (Aug-Sep-Oct) we put on an extra trip in the morning with a 7am launch and then from September on-wards an extra trip in the afternoon either 3:30pm or if a good sunset is forecasted a trip at 5pm. The 5pm trip is truly a magnificent experience watching the whales bask in the shallow waters as well as experiencing a stunning Walker Bay sunset.
