Great White Shark cage diving has been operating here for the last 25 years. This is THE place on the planet to do it, with a hit rate of 99% all year long and some boats can see up to 10 or 15 sharks in one trip out to sea, with literally loads of famous people doing it here in recent years – including – Prince Harry, Brad Pitt, King of Jordon, Matt Damon, Katie Melua, Steffi Graff, Sting, Nicholas Cage (apt name), Richard E Grant, Ruby Wax, Colin Jackson, John Lydon, Jamiroquai, Robbie Williams, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jude Law, Monica Seles, Michael Schumacher, Colin Farrell, Christopher Lambett, Maroon 5, One Republic, Justin Timberlake, Cameroon Diaz, Dolph Lundgren, Halle Berry filming the movie “Dark Tide” and believe it or not Barbara Windsor - if she can do it – anyone can :-)), David Attenborough and all the worlds film crews and documentary makers – Discovery Channel, BBC, Animal Planet, etc and many more.
There is NO need for scuba or snorkeling experience as it is all surface viewing and novices are very welcome. You pop on a wet suit, pop on a mask and jump into the cage, which is 3 metres high; 2 metres under water and 1 metre above it. When a shark approaches, all you do is hold your breath and duck-down into the lower section of the submerged cage. Resurfacing obviously to get another lung full of air - while probably screaming your lungs-out with excitement. Each cage holds up to 6 people in one go. You will be at sea for 3 to 5 hours.
You get included in the price - a light breakfast of coffee, tea, cereal, toast, fruit, yogurts etc; cold drinks and light snacks on board and then return to land for hot soup and munchies afterwards.
Professional DVD cameraman is also on board to capture all the action.
