An early departure from Cape Town towards the coastal town of Kleinbaai. Arrive at the Great White Shark House where you will receive breakfast as well as register the size of your wetsuit.

Travel time to Dyer Island is approximately 20 minutes.
Dyer Island and Shark Alley
The boat will anchor in the shallows about 10 minutes off of Dyer Island depending on the location of the last sighting of these majestic predators. On average, you will be out at sea for about 2 hours depending on the shark activity, weather and sea conditions as well as the number of divers for the day. Weather permitting, you skipper will take you on a quick trip through the infamous Shark Alley. Upon return to the Great White House, enjoy some soup and bread to warm you up. Shower facilities are available to freshen up before departure (to own account / cash only). The tour will end with drop off at your hotel.
Bring your swimsuit / bathing costume. We recommend some warm clothes – even in summer it can get chilly at sea. We highly recommend guests who are prone to any kind of motion sickness (or are unsure if they are) to use anti-nausea medication well in advance.
