The definition of an opportunity of a lifetime that is the experience of a lifetime? Shark-cage diving. The venue of the opportunity; Gaansbaai. The subject of the experience; Great White Sharks.
The mainland of Gaansbaai together with seal populated Dyer Island flank a natural nautical auditorium showcasing the Great White Shark capital of the world street named 'Shark Alley'. This dense concentration of apex predator is only 20km into Indian Ocean swell where floating at prey level encapsulated in a steel barred cage will leave you swimming in a surge of adrenalin.
Jaws of Life will rescue you from the misconception of this counter shaded creature that has rows of teeth serrated for a sawing action when clamping onto prey. Drop your own jaw in reflex amazement as the shark tosses it cone shaped head, whipping to and fro in a demonstration of power with a mouth of prey. Witness in clear water a first hand account of a chum attack from the vantage of the cage or the viewpoint of the deck.
This breathtaking exhibition of instinct requires no dive training and all equipment is provided. Stalk these magnificent carnivores from a secure setting that gives you the taste of terror while basking in beauty. Plankton couldn't get more close and personal to this streamlined hunter. The opportunity of observing Great White Sharks in the greater South African waters is the greatest global experience; isolated in probability, vulnerable to thrill.
