What people are saying about Gans Bay

An amazing experience with an excellent team!

The introduction talk from the Marine Biologist was very interesting around people’s perception of sharks. Although I did not get to see a Great White the Coppertone and Whaler sharks were extraordinary. I also got the added bonus of extra time in the water, I think I had nearly an hour . I recommended this activity to another couple who we met last night in the same hotel and they booked for Sunday 21st April. Thanks for a great day!!

perfect trip with a verry good guide. we saw a lot of whales

perfect organisation, a verry charming and helpfull guide (neil fergusson) he was verry flexible from the route planing. we saw a lot of whales, direct in front of us. absolutly to recommended!!

Great nature experience support by a fantastic team

It was a great experience on the boat along the coast line. Seeing Southern Right Whales in the waves was a fantastic experience. The skipper and his crew did a fantastic job to spot the whales in the waves and approaching them with respect. The crew was very professional and did their job to make the day in Gansbaai a magical experience.

Excellent chance to see endangered beautiful white sharks.

Very nice tour and a chance to learn about these magnificent endangered creatures. Travel time by car from Cape town takes about 2 hours, so it's a long drive, but worth it.

Gansbaai: Shark Cage Diving Experience Reviewed by Juhana, 12/27/2016

Interesting trip but outcome very much depending on luck!

You get picked up very early (5:15 am) to drive to Gaansbai, where you get a quick breakfast and an introduction to the upcoming trip. Then you board the boat and after ca. 25 min arrive at the anchor point. On board you change into the diving suits and then the first group of people go into the cage. Water was very cold and you don’t see very far. What you see in the end depends very much on your luck: for me personally, it was a rather disappointing experience though others on the same trip did get to see more sharks. If you don’t mind this „gamble“ I‘d recommend going.
