South Africa’s Cape waters are well-known around the world for being home to Great White sharks. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, there is no greater thrill than shark cage diving with these supreme creatures.

Ibhongo Holdings’ Supreme Sharks is the only 100% BEE (Black Economic Empowerment) owned shark cage diving company in South Africa. These guys have half a decade of experience behind their backs and their crew’s knowledge and expertise ensures a life-changing experience for you.

Giving back to the community and local environment is a cornerstone for Supreme Sharks. Now established in the Gansbaai and Kleinbaai community, Supreme Sharks proudly generates much-needed employment in the area. In addition to their community focus, their passion for the ocean and sea life is evident from the moment your transfer or tour ride drops you off at the clubhouse in Kleinbaai.

The ultimate goal is to share their knowledge of the Great White shark in its natural environment. For the visual learners, it’s an experience of a lifetime to see this magnificent creature gliding through the water in front of you. You will meet the team and engage in a short discussion on Great White shark anatomy and behaviour. They will explain how they work with the sharks in the area and about your upcoming dive.

As you wait for the first glimpse of a dorsal fin, they will brief you on all procedures before the action begins. Because you don’t actually dive during a cage dive, you do not need to be a qualified diver. The first guests will get ready and enter the cage for about 20 minutes for a thrilling sighting of a Great White shark.

As you wait, you can enjoy topside viewing as shark activity is often close to the surface. Great Whites are known to engage in ‘spy hopping’ – breaching to stick their heads up out of the water to look around.

The experienced team along with state of the art equipment and adherence to quality and safety requirements means that you can rest easy during this memorable experience.
