Tour Description

Early morning door-to-door collection from the Cape Town metropolitan area. Arrival 2.5 hours later at Kleinbaai, where a light breakfast, coffee/tea will be available while the safety briefing and other formalities are concluded.
The trip then really begins when you will board the boat for the 5 mile voyage to Dyer Island lasting around 20 minutes. After dropping anchor, we all begin attracting Great Whites with a specially-formulated ‘Chum’ mixture, made from completely legal ingredients, which has taken years to perfect, and is a highly-guarded trade secret. Once the Great Whites arrive, you will have the opportunity to photograph these awe-inspiring animals feeding at the surface, right alongside the boat. If you have got the guts...this is when you enter the cage!
It is recommended that you book well in advance and allow at least 2 days diving in case of adverse weather conditions. Passengers are exposed to the open sea while travelling to and from the islands so please do purchase your own sea sick tablets if necessary. At the islands the boat is anchored off the lee sides and protected bays.
Complimentary snacks & drinks are served whilst on board and wetsuits are also provided. A light lunch is enjoyed while viewing the video of the day. A copy of your own personal experience is available to purchase on DVD.

You will typically return to Cape Town in the mid-late afternoon.

Best Season:
Although weather dependant, the tours run daily, as Dyer Island is a good place to see the sharks all year round. The absolute best season is probably in our winter months, when sharks are particularly active in their feeding pattern. The following guide-line is based on tours done over past years and months may overlap slightly.

Peak Season: April – October (99% success rate)
High Season: November & December (90 – 99% success rate)
Low Season: January – March (80 – 90% success rate)
Water temperatures vary between 16 and 20 degrees Celsius during our high season, and between 10 and 16 degrees Celsius during our intermediate and low seasons.

What to bring:
Towel, warm weather proof clothing, sunscreen and hat, camera and binoculars, sea-sick tablets.
