White Shark Cage Diving
Highlights of the half day tour include anchoring at Dyer Island and Geyser Rock, which boasts a large Cape Fur seal colony; watching the crew lure sharks with chum and then the option to get into the cage that has been lowered down into the water.
Watch these magnificent creatures up-close from a luxury boat. The Southern Right Whales frequently visit Hermanus’ shores annually from June to November.
