Our target species are the magnificent Mako and Blue sharks as well as the massive Yellowfin Tuna that they occasionally hunt. Whilst not as big and bulky as the great white, the Mako certainly does not stand back as it is the fastest shark in the sea and coupled with its beautiful blue and silver colouring is a truly magnificent creature, aptly described by Peter Goadby as “Blue dynamite”.
 
These trips take place during our summer and autumn months (Nov to June) and a variety of shark species are seen as well as being one of the best areas in the world to see pelagic birds. To find these animals we depart from Simon's Town  head out into the warm Agulhas current off Cape Point and it is this warm current and multitude of fish species that attract the great predators of the deep. A great time can still be had viewing these beautiful sharks from the boat as they are very curious and often swim up and alongside the boat.

For naturalist wanting a bit of everything this is a must. From the moment we get out of False Bay we start to see wildlife that land lovers will never see, a multitude of pelagic birds can been seen including Skuas, Terns, Shearwaters, petrels, penguins as well as the possibility of seeing up to six different species of Albatross. Whales and dolphins of many species are also regular visitors on our run out into the deep.

Lunch which usually consists of rolls with cold meats as well as a vegetarian option, accompanied by soft drinks, fruit juice, bottled water and a variety of snacks are available throughout the course of the day.

Possible Cetacean Species:  Humpback, Southern Right, Sperm, Pilot and Brydes whales , Common, Bottelnosed, Dusky Risso's dolphins , Mola Mola (Sun Fish)

Possible bird species: Black  Browed, Yellow-nosed and less often Wandering & Royal Albatross, a variety of Shearwaters and Petrels, various Terns and Gulls.
 
All diving is on snorkel so a diving certification is not necessary however guests must be comfortable in the water. We use a three man cage but for comfort reasons we only allow 2 divers per dive. We take a maximum of 10 guests per trip plus 3 crew.  It’s a 2.5 hour boat ride each way so guests need to be comfortable going to sea
