Private Full Day Peninsula with Great White Shark Safari

Print Email

Depart before daybreak for Simonstown harbour for a boat trip in search of the super predator of the oceans, the Great White Shark with international shark experts, Chris and Monique Fallows. (Subject to availability.)

Ocean Great White Shark

The Fallows have studied Great Whites since 1989 and were the first to film the now famous Great Whites of False Bay in the rare (and until-then, relatively-unseen) act of “breaching” (launching themselves out of the water) in their pursuit of Cape Fur Seals they hunt in this area.

Our search for Great Whites includes one of their typical haunts, Seal Island, home to some 60 000 seals as well as a host of other sea bird species. The main focus of the Safari is on natural interaction with the sharks from the boat, observing natural predatory behaviour, with a tow using a fake cut-out carpet “seal” decoy employed to encourage the sharks to “breach”.

Light lunch, snacks and soft drinks are served on board. Return to port around 2pm for a visit to the nearby African Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach. A short trip to Cape Point, the south westernmost point of the continent, wraps up our ocean adventure.

Note: The best time to see Great Whites hunting is May to Sept., with sightings least likely from Nov. to March. Safaris are dependant on weather and are at the skipper’s discretion. A warm jacket and binoculars are strongly advised.

Private Full Day, City, Table Mountain and Robben Island

Print Email

Depart from Cape Town’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront by ferry for a 25-minute trip across Table Bay to Robben (Seal) Island.

Robben Island Table Mountain

This World Heritage Site and South Africa’s most revered national monument was a prison for some 450 years - for convicts, slaves, exiled Eastern princes, lepers, the insane and those punished for resisting oppressive rule - among them, Nelson Mandela.

The tour, led by guides (some of whom were once inmates) includes a visit to the Prison Block and the infamous Limestone Quarry, where prisoners once toiled, as well as a drive around the island with it breathtaking views across the bay.

Return to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where you are met by our guide for a trip along the picturesque Atlantic Seaboard, playground of wealthy Capetonians, and a stop for lunch at a seafood restaurant along the way.

Continue past sunny Camps Bay over Kloof Nek to the Lower Cableway Station to board the revolving cable car for a 5-minute ride to the top of Table Mountain. 1036 meters above sea level, this sandstone massif offers staggering bird’s-eye views of the city, the bay and the Peninsula (as far as Cape Point on a clear day) as you explore its summit. (This may be done in reverse depending on weather conditions.)
