Great White and Seals in South Africa
REQUIRED DIVING EXPERIENCE
To participate on this trip you need a minimum level of qualification and experience. Please don't hesitate to contact us for a chat if you have questions regarding these requirements.
Minimum requirements are:
- PADI Advanced Open Water, BSAC Sports Diver, or equivalent
- 50 logged dives
- Experience with dry suit diving (if you bring a dry suit)
All the dives will be from a boat/RIB. At least one of the dives requires an immediate descent, which means entering the water with an empty BCD with no time to adjust your mask or buoyancy at the surface (HMS Birkenhead).
We recommend that you have some experience with diving in currents and limited visibility before coming on this trip.
Be aware that even experienced divers find the diving around the Cape harsher than in tropical locations, due to colder water, currents and lower visibility.
If the opportunity arises to participate in dives involving wreck penetration, decompression, or dives deeper than 30 metres, documentation of specialized education and experience will be required.
Cage diving with the Great Whites does not require any prior diving experience or diving certificate.
