Go for a diving to meet the white sharks, — a cold shiver down your spine from the thought that you are separated only by flimsy metal rods :)
The seawater of Cape Town is full of large white sharks. Swimming here is not safe, but you can dive with predators in a specially equipped iron cage.

How to do?
1. Boats that will take you to the white sharks, depart from the Kleinbaai harbour in the city of Gansbaai, that you can reach by a route # 2 from Cape Town, turning to the R43 near the city of Bot River.
2. A 15-20-minutes way on the excursion boat and prepared cage for immersion is right in the front of you. Lure monsters won't make you to wait long - a sea trip with diving will take 4 hours.

3. When predators arrive do not hold out your hand for greeting — they do greet very painfully :)
Better take a selfie with shark trying to get its prey from the cage :)
When to do?
From May to August when the sharks hunt closer to the bank.
Adventure cost (ZAR1500 per person) includes: boat and equipment rent, diving, snacks on board and lunch on arrival to harbor.
