Cape Town is the capital city of Western Cape Province in South Africa, is a scenic city to visit, given its location by the harbor of Cape Floristic region and including landmarks like Cape Point and Table Mountain. It is a multicultural city and a great tourist destination. Being a harbor and having distinct coastlines on either side, there is much water based recreations that travelers can expect to find here.
One of the experiences that travelers can look forward to is the eight to ten hour cage diving experience here. This can be obtained near the Gansbaai coastline where one can get a full day tour. The tours are usually conducted by guides who are experienced marine biologists. Tour participants are then taken in a cage in the water where they can observe the sharks up close and in their natural habitat. The tours usually include breakfast as well as snacks while some even have pick up and drop facilities.
The tours start at Gansbaai which is a fishing village whose waters are known for the high population of white sharks. Usually the tours start at a location called Great White House, where tour participants are given breakfast and an introduction about what to expect on the tour. The tour participants are then asked to step into a cage which goes down into the waters. The visitors are asked to don diving gear and they are taken to a cage that is immersed in the ocean, which is a 20 minute trip out from the coastline. The cage is immersed in water in a way that people can get out of the cage any time they want to. The boat stays on the diving spot for about two hours to allow participants a chance to see shark activity in the waters.
