DIVE WITH COW SHARKS & GIANT STINGRAYS
Day Tour from Cape Town
From ZAR 1250 per person.
We are offering this new two dive package comprising a morning a dive with the Sevengill Cow Sharks near Millers Point and a dive in search of the giant short-tail stingrays that also frequent the area. This double dive package is great option for photographers looking for sharks and rays. As a shore dive you can avoid the crowded boats and enjoy the animals to yourself.
09h00 Dive with Sevengill Cow Sharks: The morning dive will be spent in search of these beautiful and little understood sharks. Sevengill cow sharks Notorynchus cepedianus attain 3m in length and can be found throughout the year among the kelp forests of False Bay. As apex predator that activly hunts seals at night these primitive looking sharks are in rest-mode during the day and seem undisturbed by the presence of divers, offering fantastic encounters and photo opportunities. Where possible this dive will be done as a boat dive however it may also be undertaken as a shore entry – should this be the case numbers will be limited to 3 divers per Divemaster. The shore-entry is relatively easy, however divers should be reasonably fit and comfortable in cold water equipment.
11h30 Stingray Dive: Our second dive will be from the shore near the commercial slipway, where we will dive along the kelp fringe in search of these magnificent giant rays. The rays frequent the areas near the slipway as they often pick up scraps from the commercial boats. We have found as many as six different rays on a single dive some with wingspans of over two meters.
