      An early departure from Cape Town and travel towards the coastal town of Kleinbaai. Arrive at the Great White Shark House where you will receive a welcome breakfast.  Register for the size of your wetsuit in preparation for your dive. Receive a pre-trip safety briefing about what to expect during the trip and a biological background on Great White Sharks. After the briefing, stroll down to the harbour to board the vessel. You could get close and personal in the cage or enjoy the experience from the deck of the largest and most stable boat operating from Gansbaai Harbour. Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes.

        Dyer Island and Shark Alley:

          The boat will anchor in the shallows about 10 minutes off  Dyer Island depending on the location of the last sighting of these majestic predators. On average, you will be out at sea for about 2 hours depending on the shark activity, weather and sea conditions as well as the number of divers for the day. Weather permitting, your skipper will take you on a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley. Upon return to the Great White House, enjoy some soup and bread to warm you up. Shower facilities are available to freshen up before departure (to own account/cash only). The tour will end with drop off at your hotel.
