This morning you start your day off with an early breakfast at your guesthouse. After meeting the crew at Simons Town pier you board the boat to travel the short distance to the nearby marine reserve. Here in the protection of the reserve, you will find the rarely dived with shark species, the seven\gill cow shark. The seven gills are fierce predators as they hunt for seals and fish in packs. The sharks are residents and no form of bait is needed to attract them. Simply slip into the 10-meter deep water and wait for the sharks to arrive and investigate. The seven gills are curious and confident sharks not being shy of the camera or divers at all. You can choose to do a second dive with the sharks today or you can choose to spend it with the seals in the nearby kelp forest.

Day 3: Blue and Mako Shark Dive, Overnight Simons Town
For Experienced and confident divers only. This dive is certainly for the more adventurous and confident divers. Travel out to the warm Agulhas current where you come face to face with the two shark species that can most certainly be listed as some of the most beautiful sharks around the African coast. Diving in the pelagic current is a once in a lifetime experience. Here, off the point of Simons Town. you will experience these stunning blue and silver sharks flash past you with lighting speed. Although they are fast in the water you will have plenty of time to marvel at beauty and agility. The crew will start chumming for the blue and mako sharks as soon as the boat decides on a good dive location. Once the chum is in the water the waiting period begins. Sometimes we only need a few minutes for the action to start however sometimes we have to wait longer. This dive is not only far off-shore but it is also extremely deep at roughly 1000 meters deep. Divers have to pay attention and do precisely as the divemaster instructs.
