Shark cage diving is a rare and not-to-be-missed experience while visiting Cape Town!
Residents of Cape Town are not only blessed with spectacular scenery, but are also privileged to host one of the world’s most spectacular and endangered apex predators of the oceans, the great white shark.
The Cape waters have the highest concentration of great whites on earth due to the abundance of naturally occurring Cape fur seals.
With Downhill Adventures’ focus on water and ocean adventures, researching and studying, how the ocean’s predators interact and behave is of huge importance. Their aim is therefore to educate and teach respect for these magnificent creatures.
The shark cage diving and surface viewing boat trips run are designed to get you close to the sharks without negatively affecting their natural behaviour. The informative and experienced dive masters and skippers will share 50 years of collective experience and passionate dedication to preserving these kings of the ocean.
Your instructors will demystify the beast, while building confidence and respect so that more people can share the exhilaration of pursuing the ocean adventures of surfing, scuba diving, kitesurfing, kayaking and swimming.
Downhill Adventures’ aim is to educate you about the biology and conservation of the great white shark alongside a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Join them on one of the exciting eco-adventures of discovery and exploration that is truly unique to Cape Town.
Cape Town is not only blessed with such spectacular scenery but also privileged to host one of the worlds most spectacular and endangered predators of the Oceans, The Great White Shark.
Remember that the great white is a wild animal and cannot be controlled in its natural environment so patience and respect are required.
