The Boat and Cage:
The boat used is one of the largest, most modern and luxurious boats available in the shark diving industry. Megalodon II is a newly built 11 x 3.8 meter catamaran, providing the ultimate stability at sea. Although she has been designed to accommodate 50 seated passengers on the top and bottom, we usually do not take more than 25 passengers per tour, ensuring plenty extra room and maximum cage diving time for all divers. Our boat is fully licensed to SA marine safety standards as a passenger vessel
The Shark Cage is a securely structured, galvanized, 5-man steel cage. The surface cage is constructed of re-enforced mild steel and built in accordance with specifications provided by coded welders and registered engineers. It has a convenient port hole for easy photography, as well as a 300mm free-board above the surface, allowing divers to effectively communicate with the Dive Master on the boat.
The hookah system is used in the cage, meaning that the diving cylinders remain on the boat, since we have 5mm air hoses running into the cage. The cage has been carefully designed for the safety of the diver/s as well as the animal. You will therefore find no sharp edges around the cage, ensuring that the sharks are not harmed in any way. Our cage is replaced annually and is inspected by authorities on a regular basis.
