Breakfast will be provided on arrival in Gansbaai, so no need to worry about missing your hotel's morning treats. After a full security briefing you will make your way to the boat waiting to take you out to the world-famous Shark Alley, off the coast of Ganbaai.

Upon anchoring at Shark Alley you will get the chance to observe all of its inhabitants, from its seals and various birdlife, to Southern Right Whales visiting its waters in season (July to November), and of course the Great White shark. A wetsuit and a diving mask will be provided for you to share the waters with the awesome creature from the safety of a cage which is attached to the boat and floats right next to it.

Achim -

Sehr gut organisiert und vorbereitet. Das Boot war voll, leider kann man auch seekrank werden, also bei Gefahr mit Reisetabletten vorbeugen. Wie bei allen Naturereignissen keine Garantie, aber wir hatten 4-5 Blauhaie am Käfig und das ist schon beeindruckend. Ich hatte niemals den Eindruck in Gefahr zu sein.
