|12:30||Arrive Simon’s Town – Apex Shark Expeditions shop – Afternoon Shark trip
The sole focus of this afternoon trip is cage diving and surface viewing. Although you stand a chance of seeing the natural predation and breaching, this behaviour mostly takes place in the early morning. We do on most days observe good numbers of sharks around the boat and this is a great opportunity for cage diving and surface viewing
|12:45||Meet crew at Simon’s Town Pier. Guests are welcomed aboard.|
|13:00||Depart for Seal Island. (25 to 35 minute boat ride)|
|13:30 – 16:30||We decide the best spot to anchor up based on weather conditions and we attract sharks to our vessel. Once a shark approaches our boat, a bait is placed in the water to keep the sharks interested and around the boat for identification and viewing purposes. At no point are the sharks purposefully fed or handled. If the weather conditions are favourable, the cage is lowered into the water for cage diving. Safety precautions are then explained to the diver wishing to enter the cage. It is important to know that the sharks come very close to the boat, so for those not wishing to dive, they will still have excellent views of the Great White Shark. Snacks accompanied by soft drinks, fruit juice, bottled water are available.|
|17:00||Boat will arrive back in Simon’s Town Harbour depending on the weather conditions and shark activity.|
|17:15||Transfer to your hotel.|
