More information about the Shark Cage Diving

Marine Dynamics provide superior quality and service; with a dedicated marine biologist and expert crew onboard every excursion you will experience a thrilling, educational and relaxing trip.

The experienced crew and researchers will not only show you where these mysterious and misunderstood apex predators hunt and hide, but also explain to you how and where they feed, breed and breach. Learn how to identify a specific shark by its unique dorsal fin and scars and how to distinguish between male and female sharks.

The trip starts with a 20-25 minute boat trip on vessel ‘Slashfin’ (named after a legendary 3,3m male shark) to where the activity will take place. Slashfin is a unique, multi-million rand aluminium boat custom designed for optimal speed, stability, safety and space; and can comfortably accommodate 40 passengers and the crew at a time.

What you can expect:

On any given day, we also usually see at least two or more members of the Marine Big Five – sharks, dolphins, whales, seals and penguins, as well as several bird species.

Here is a brief breakdown of what to expect:

  • Before the trip guests meet at the Great White House in Kleinbaai
  • You will receive breakfast or lunch and register your wetsuit size
  • Guests receive a pre-trip safety briefing about what to expect during the trip and a biological background on great white sharks
  • We then take a 200m stroll down to the harbour to board Slashfin
  • Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes, with the shallows being a short 10 minute ride (where we anchor depends on where the sharks are)
  • On average, we anchor for 2 hours, but this depends on shark activity, conditions, as well as number of divers
  • Weather permitting, we take a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley
  • Lastly, a debrief in the Great White House and a celebratory beverage to toast the occasion!
