Booked an early morning boat trip with a pick up option (had to pay extra as we were staying outside central Cape Town, but the driver was there on time, if not early, and was a great driver).
After getting dropped off at the boat we made our way out to Seal Island. The sunrise was absolutely stunning and well worth the early morning and trip just for that!
The skipper and tour guides gave some great explanations but also gave us time to view and take photos.
When getting into the water, we were given wetsuits which were dry and easy to use. Getting into the water was cold but the wetsuits had hoods and we were also given boots! The guys on the boat threw bait and chum into the water to attract sharks and there were only two other boats around, which meant we had more chance of seeing a great white.
The water visibility wasn’t great on the day we went out but we did get a few glimpses of sharks when in the cage. The views of the sharks from the boat and top viewing deck were incredible... what an amazing animal!
We were given food and drinks on the boat, which was great (needed a food boost after being in the cage)! After everyone had been in the cage (you were definitely given long enough) we were driven around Seal Island and given some more explanations.
All in all, would highly recommend! Was a great morning with a fantastic crew!
