DETAILS

South Africa is a shark hotspot with over 100 species of shark present in our waters. Join Shark Explorers on the shark expedition of a lifetime to dive, interact, film and photograph White Sharks, Blue Sharks, Mako Sharks, Sevengill Sharks, Spotted Gully Sharks, Puffadder Catsharks, Dark Shy Sharks, Pajama Sharks, Leopard Cat Sharks, Cape Fur Seals, and much more. This 10 Night/11 Day expedition package also includes a full-day tour to view the BIG 5 on land, making this a truly African experience!

Also included are three half day sightseeing tours to discover the beauty of the Western Cape. On these tours we plan to show you the Cape of Good Hope which is the most South Western tip of the African continent, finish this tour off with the famous Boulders Beach€ which is home to the African penguins. Other sightseeing attractions on this expedition are Table Mountain, Robben Island or a trip to some of the best wine farms in the world. The Shark action will consist of two trips to Seal Island (False Bay) to meet the Great White Shark face to face and learn about their behaviors and movements around our coastline.

Three inshore dive trips (two dives per trip) amongst the kelp forests in search of Broadnose Sevengill Sharks, Spotted Gully Sharks, Puffadder Catsharks, Dark Shy Sharks, Leopard Cat Sharks, Pajama Sharks and Cape Fur Seals. Two offshore trips in search of Blue Sharks, Mako Sharks, Giant Yellowfin Tuna and Longfin Tuna and Pilot whales. The three half-day land-based tours are flexible to the desire of the group and the advice from the tour guide. The options are Cape Point Nature Reserve, the Penguin colony at Boulders Beach, Table Mountain, Robben Island, Winelands and many more.
