Hello Stew,

My experience with shark cage diving operations are minimal however one of my visitors who is travelling with me in the future has referred me to African Shark Eco-Charters. I have only hear good reports about this very professional unit of Chris Fallows and Rob Lawrence and judging by their website http://www.ultimate-animals.com/ they certainly seem to know what they are doing.

Chris Fallows is also well known in Cape Town for his pictures of sharks breaching oiut of the water.

There are no Big 5 type safaris available in Cape Town however you could go on a mini safari at Clara Anna Fontein just outside Cape Town http://home.intekom.com/capelodges/venues/claranna1.htm

Hope this helps.

We used the following company for Shark Cage Diving:

White Shark Eco-ventures
website: www.sharkdive.co.za
email: [email protected]
Ask for Cindy or Mariette

Cost is about $100-$150 for the day including pick-up/return to CPT and breakfast or lunch.

A remarkable day, great underwater pictures, very cold water - I didn't go in (my mother didn't raise any fools) but my partner did and he hasn't stopped talking about it since.

Go for it!
