Towards the end of the main road you will see a road sign which reads 'White Shark Diving' '. Turn right here and follow the road towards the harbour and sea.

Once you arrive at the seaside, the street makes a small bend and on the right you will see a two-storey building with a shark. There should be more than enough parking spaces available behind or in front of the building. Our reception is on the first floor, where our shark team will await your arrival. Here you can recover from your journey and enjoy a breakfast.

Our tip for all those using their own transport:
Those who have booked a tour and opted to use their own transport still have the opportunity of visiting Hermanus after the shark tour. The trip is especially worthwhile in winter and with a stroke of luck you may even still get to do some whale watching. 

Hemel en Aarde wine route
If you have booked a morning tour we would highly recommend driving through the Hemel en Aarde wine region on your way back to Cape Town. Directly at the exit from Hermanus, turn right and eventually you will reach Caledon and from there the N2 highway, which will take you to back Cape Town.
