Helicopter flights

We offer shark cage diving helicopter flights from Cape Town to Gansbaai, South Africa. The tour starts from the famous Victoria and Alfred Waterfront in the early hours of the morning, or as per your own special arrangement. The helicopter takes flight along the Atlantic Coast where you can marvel at the stunning Cape Peninsula and Cape of Good Hope. Our destination is Walker Bay near Hermanus and it is right here we will be able to see the Southern Right Whale during whale season from lofty heights. Proceeding a little further we’ll be reaching the harbour of Gansbaai.

From here our second adventure begins. After a short safety briefing and a light breakfast, the shark boat awaits you. We will be cruising for about 1.5 to 2 hours on the open ocean until we reach an underwater channel near Dyer Island. Shortly after dropping anchor we will be luring the Great Whites with a fish head. It usually takes no longer than 5 minutes before the first sharks appear.

The shark cage gets lowered into the water with up to six divers at a time. There are normally about 18 divers on board taking turns, and depending on the weather, we usually spend approximately 4-5 ours out at sea before safely returning to the harbour.

Back at the harbour you can sit back and enjoy a meal whilst sharing your diving experiences with fellow divers. Our crew will have a DVD of your shark tour on offer which can be purchased directly from them.
When all is said and done your helicopter will be waiting for you with rotor blades spinning. Once aboard we will lift off back into the open skies. A right bend will see us heading towards Hermanus and Cape Town until we arrive back at Table Mountain in all its glory.

Clear weather conditions will also allow for a view of Robben Island as well as South Africa’s west coast. We also offer flight safaris to the Inverdoorn Game Reserve, Wine tours as well as scenic flights around Table Mountain.

We look forward to hearing from you.
