Shark Cage Diving
Gaans Baai, due to water temperatures, water depth and easy access to food, this area has earned worldwide fame and recognition as the single most successful area to view the great white shark within a very short period of time.
Getting into the cage with the sharks around is truly the most breath-taking experience you could imagine. The sharks may occasionally brush their tail against the cage when feeding, but NEVER attack it. They are wonderfully curious and often come close to the cage. A magnificent opportunity.

Kayak with the Penguins
Based in Simonstown and a must do… plan to see the African Penguins in their natural habitat. One of the most delightful experiences you will ever have.
Take the guided tour on our very stable double kayaks and paddle the warm waters of False Bay and we’ll show you some wonderful things on our visit to the penguins at Boulders Beach. No experience is required and any able bodied person can do it. We paddle every day of the year, weather permitting – summer and winter. The winter months are often wonderful for paddling because they have more calm windless days than summer and on those days it is absolutely beautiful. Plus there is always a chance of seeing whales.
