Trip and transport times*

WSDC operates 1 to 3 cage diving trips per day, with trip meeting times ranging from early morning to midday. Each cage diving trip usually runs for approximately four and half hours.

Travel time from Cape Town is roughly 2.5 hours.

If you opt to make use of our transport service, collection times will be confirmed on the day prior to your trip.

*Exact times vary due to seasons, tides, sea and weather conditions, number of daily trips, shark activities, etc. The final/24 hour weather and sea report will be reviewed on the day prior to the dive and the trip time schedule and subsequent transport pick-up times will be advised via e-mail on the day before the dive.
