Book the ultimate in adventure experiences with a combination Great White Shark breaching ( in season), viewing and cage dive trip out of Simons Town, which is a mere 45 mins. drive from the centre of Cape Town.

Take Great White Shark Cage Diving to another level with scuba; no experience necessary.

We at African Shark Eco-Charters pride ourselves in our eco-friendly and environmentally responsible approach and passion for Great Whites and their natural predatory behaviour. Our trips offer insights into this wonderful world of the Great White Shark, from both the boat and cage; with a wealth of knowledge to be shared, from our Skipper, Rob Lawrence and on board Marine Biologist, as well as the experienced crew and deck hands.

Seal Island is unique in its topographical layout, making this the Great White Shark breaching capitol of the world, offering the ideal depths and seabed layout to grant the Great White just the right amount of space to build up the required speed to burst through the water and “fly” through the air, giving it the well-deserved name; “Airjaws.”

Our trips leave from the Simons Town Pier early, in order to catch the Great Whites predatory interaction with the Cape Fur Seal when at its peak, which is at first light. It is at this time that one is most likely to witness the Flying Great White Sharks of False Bay.

As we are an eco-friendly operator, we do not make use of sharks’ liver to attract the sharks; we are anchored alongside the world famous Seal Island, which means we are in a natural chum slick, so chumming is not necessary either. We do bait, which is making use of a tuna head that has been securely bound with a rope and repeatedly thrown into the water and brought in before the sharks are able to make a meal of it as well as deploying a decoy. 

Don’t miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime, book your trip today and join us, whether it’s for one of our amazing Airjaws trips, or any other of our shark cage dive and viewing adventures.   

It is important to note that all our trips are sea and weather dependent, and we are entirely at the mercy of nature, so do not guarantee sightings, but do promise a voucher to return should there not be sharks, and in the event that we have to cancel due to bad and unsafe sea and weather conditions, we will try to reschedule you to another day that suits you (availability dependent) or will refund 100% of any monies already paid.
