Gansbaai is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Gans Bay, South Africa. The average visibility is 41-50ft/12-15m.

Shark diving in a cage with the great white in Gansbaai is truly an amazing experience. Climb into a impenetrable floating cage and feel the adrenaline pump through your veins as a shark swims towards you, opens its mouth and bares its big sharp teeth. Gansbaai in the Western Cape of South Africa is one of the world’s best, if not the best, great white shark cage diving regions. This quaint little South African fishing village, lies only 160km’s from Cape Town and is known worldwide as ‘The great white shark capital of the world’, making Gansbaai shark diving an extremely sought after experience.

Not brave enough to plunge into the shark diving cage for a little adventure with the great whites? This is not at all a problem. Non-divers can enjoy viewing great white sharks from the boat without diving. You get an amazingly clear view of these magnificent predators while viewing from the boat. They look like submarines gliding past. Great white sharks are surface feeders and the shark handlers are trained to bring them up-close-and-personal against the side of the boat. Their heads and jaws are clearly visible.
