Great White Shark “Ultimate-AIRJAWS” breaching and cage diving trip in Simon’s town, Cape TownWe depart early in the morning. It's at first light when the great white's natural predatory interaction with the seals is the most intense and we get to witness "AIRJAWS".

Great White Sharks are the ultimate of the oceans Apex Predators. Beautifully streamlined to slip through the water with minimum effort, the Great White is a huge and particularly beautiful shark, featuring bold pigmentation, dark eyes, and a built-in 'smile'.

Great Whites are highly curious and exploratory. They often investigate novel objects in their environment - first visually and, if nothing too frightening occurs, eventually by gentle mouthing - and will scavenge whenever possible.

Do: Come along even if just surface-viewing, Take motion sickness tablets, bring warm clothing, sunscreen and hat, bring your camera!

Don't: Hesitate, book with us today!!
