Shark Cage Diving - Being lowered down into the water in the cage with the sharks swimming around is one of the most breath-taking experiences you will ever live to remember. The sharks are very curious and may come close-up to the cage, taking a closer look at the diver and may occasionally brush their tail against the cage, but they will never attack the cage.

Walker Bay is the breeding ground of the Southern Right Whale, returning each year to meet with the same mate. The whale 'crier' sounds his kelp horn to announce where whales have been sighted. The whales can be seen from the cliffs in the town centre as early as June and usually depart in early December.

Clive was extremely helpful and accommodating. He immediately informed us that due to bad weather , the Cage Dive was not operating, so he helped us plan a fantastic day around Hermanus. He drove us around the scenic routes and helped us with choosing a lovely restaurant. Although it was a Sunday and peak season, he still managed to find us a very good restaurant with a view. His Vehicle was very clean and comfortable. We will recommend Clive to anyone visiting CapeTown and beyond. Thanks Clive x
