To the bold and ambitious CAPEFUNTOURS can book an appointment for you to meet this mighty predator, under water or from the dryness of the deck. The choice is yours. No scuba experience is required and the licensed experienced operators we work with supply your very necessary wetsuit.
Depending upon the seasons there are two locations: SEAL ISLAND FALSE BAY, where you depart from SIMON’S TOWN or GANS BAAI a 3-hour drive from CAPE TOWN. After the SHARK dive we can visit a wine farm or two or perhaps a Micro-brewery, the choice is yours.
