A screen shot from the video below
Shark tours in Cape Town attract marine wildlife enthusiasts from around the world. False Bay is arguably the best area of water in the world for great white shark viewing and is even the setting for Halle Berry’s upcoming blockbuster Dark Tide, which is about close encounters with the ocean’s most feared predator.
While shark-spotting tours are offered throughout the year in Cape Town, sharks are most active in these waters between May and October. View our database of tour operators who specialise in shark tours. Whether you are interested in cage diving or boat trips, you will find an accredited operator to deliver your wishes. You can also read more about sharks, whales and seals on our attractions page.
Below is a video of Great White sharks breaching near Seal Island in False Bay, produced by African Shark Eco-Charters, one of the many operators on our database.
