Tinggly recommend this amazing excursion, operating off the South African coast from the fishing town of Gansbaai, around 2 hours from Cape Town. Led by a shark conservation expert, you’ll learn heaps about these incredible predators, the challenges they face, and how they live and feed. This is an adrenaline-packed, humbling and only mildly terrifying experience, and one which we think everyone ought to try at least once!
After a full safety briefing you’ll head out on the good ship Barracuda with a case of packed lunches in search of shark, something this team have a lot of success with. Once you find some, you’ll have the option of either watching from the boat, or being lowered into the water inside a sturdy cage from where you can observe the sharks up-close - this is the tough part! The sharks can reach speeds of up to 35mph (56kmph) and regularly grow more than 6m(21ft) in length - so expect to be awestruck from the get-go. You’ll be perfectly safe inside the cage, but if you get a little nervous don’t worry, it’s perfectly natural!
