Let White Shark Projects in Gansbaai take you on a thrilling adventure of a lifetime. Known for its dense population of Great White Sharks, the village of Gansbaai is a premier shark cage diving location where you can come face to face with one of nature’s ultimate predators.
In shark season, you can expect to see a variety of shark species including the Great White Shark, Bronze Whaler shark and Seven Gill Cow shark. Prior to booking please contact us for recent sightings so you know what to expect to see on the day.
The Gansbaai coastline – especially the area around Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, is frequented by several shark species hunting their favourite prey – penguins and the Cape Fur seal, in what it now called Shark Alley.
Yes, you might have visited the area for sharks, but in season, you can also see Southern right whales and other marine life.
To get you close to the action, get in touch with White Shark Projects. This successful, environmentally-responsible research organisation has actually logged the most contacts with Great White Sharks in the world – year in and year out. There are less than 5 000 Great White Sharks in the entire ocean, so it really is very special to be part of this experience!

White Shark Projects activities
Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime shark cage diving experience that will captivate your imagination – both as a diver and non-diver!
A typical day begins at the Dive Lodge in Kleinbaai with a tasty, continental breakfast and a safety briefing. Afterwards, wetsuits and other equipment are supplied before being led to one of their boats for your trip.
Their boats are designed to offer comfort and the best viewing experience and you will have a skipper, a Dive Master and support crew accompanying you.
With their experience, you will soon locate the sharks, drop anchor, suit up and be lowered in the cage surrounded by sharks. Even those choosing to remain on the boat will get an experience of their lifetime!
Once back on deck, lunch and refreshments will be provided. After three hours out at sea, the crew will then return guests to the lodge for reflection of a meal while watching a movie of your trip, which you can also take home with you.
