• In Gansbaai, the largest white shark ever caught was at Danger Point and measured up to 5.9m. The exact world record white shark is a contested issue, but chances are it is between 6-7m.

  • If you see a white shark in the water don’t panic. Chances are high that the shark has already detected you and isn’t interested. White shark attacks are normally associated with poor visibility, so avoid murky conditions.

  • White sharks have a unique system called a “counter current heat exchange”, which keeps their body  tempreture +/- 7C above the surrounding water temperature. 

  • All sharks have an incredibly unique system on the tip of their nose called the “ampillae of Lorenzini”. These are small pores filled with a gel that transmits the electrical currents in the water to the shark’s brain so that it can assess its environment.

  • White sharks give birth to live young (not eggs), and they give birth to 6-8 pups at one time. Pups are usually between 1.0-1.5m in length and are born with teeth.

  • Body language has been a well documented form of shark communication and has identified body arching, jaw gaping, and other postures as specific social tactics.


Cancellation Policy

Book Now

We recommend booking well in advance for the shark cage diving experience due to demand. If there are no shows and cancellation within 7 days of departure there will be a 100% cancellation fee.

In the event of illness, hospitalisation, accident or death (with the necessary proof and discretion of management) a full refund will be considered.

In the circumstance that we are unable to operate a tour due to bad weather and where safety is comprimised, clients will be informed as soon as possible and an alternative date will be offered or a full refund given.

Clients are not entitled to a refund should weather conditions suddenly change while out at sea causing a trip to be curtailed.
Sharks are wild animals and their presence cannot be guaranteed. In the unlikely event that there is no shark activity while on a shark cage diving tour, then a 50% refund will be granted or the client can get a voucher for an alternative date. Similarly diving in the cage can occasionally be affected by weather conditions and will not be permitted if safety is compromised in any way.
