Should the weather prohibit us from going to sea on any of these days or should you wish to replace a shark cage diving day with another adventure, we can offer customised guided day tours such as:
- Whale Watching – Boat Trips and Flights: This extraordinary experience allows you to view our oceans giants at sea. This activity is only offered during the whale season, June – December each year.The activity can be added to a shark cage diving day where you can join back-to-back shark and whale boat trips or take to the sky for areal whale viewing during a scenic flight along the coast.
- Scenic Flight Day – Southern Tip of Africa & Areal Shark viewing:This 1-hour flight starts your aerial journey from Stanford to Cape Agulhas and Struisbaai, where giant Sting Rays are often sighted
Should flight time/conditions allow, the pilot will land at the legendary Black Oyster Catcher restaurant for a quick wine tasting or snack before taking you further along the coast to Pearly Beach and over the infamous Dyer Island and shark Alley where shark cage diving vessels anchor for viewings. Enjoy an awe-inspiring view of shark as they move around and between the vessels at sea before your return flight via De Kelders bay to Stanford.
- A Day in the countryside: Join an educational tour at the Panthera Africa sanctuary and rehabilitation centre for BIG wild cats and visit the Klein River Cheese Farm to enjoy a cheese tasting at this quaint family farm. Drive through the scenic countryside and stop at the Stanford Valley Farm for a superb Manor House lunch and to finish off your day, stop at one of the local wine farms or breweries for a wine, craft beer or gin tasting en-route back to your hotel.
- An Outdoor Adventure day: Go Tree Top Zipling through the breath-taking Hemel and Aarde Valley (Heaven and Earth valley) before joining an amazing Quad Biking Tour through the vineyards and up the mountain for panoramic views of the bay and make a few stops at stunning wine farms for a quick tasting along the way.
