Day Five: HERMANUS – the home of Shark Cage Diving!
Another early morning start. An English speaking driver will collect you from the hotel to meet for the shark cage diving in Gansbaai at 07:00am (weather permitting).Great Whites are surface feeders. The shark activity takes place on or just below sea level. Full scuba gear is not required to be used for shark cage diving in the cage that is attached to the boat and no diving certification or experience is required. Your head and shoulders are above sea level until the dive master gives the call to let you know that the Great Whites are approaching. You then put your head and shoulders below sea level for the close sightings as the Great Whites swim towards and past the cage. Snorkel equipment and breath holding are the most popular options selected as the scuba gear sounds are found to be distracting for the extremely sound sensitive Great Whites. When you are not in our 5-6 man cage, refreshments are enjoyed while viewing the Great Whites and other sea life from the viewing deck. Return to the hotel for breakfast and to refresh.
In the afternoon an English speaking guide will collect you from the hotel for your Fatbike eco tour. Join us on an epic ride from De Kelders to Hermanus on a 20k ride along the beach.

Once we are on the large stretch of beach the sand is normally firm along the waterline so riding is relatively easy. To ride on open beach for kilometres is wonderful, next to the waves rolling in and hopefully spotting the odd seal and spotting rare African Oyster Catchers. This is an eco-trip so at all times we will observe the nature from a comfortable distance and will not cause any stress on the environment or animals we come across. We will stop along the way at the stunning cave built into a rock by a local man who stayed there for up to a year! To end we will reach Grotto beach and stop for refreshments before we load up the bikes on our trailer and drive back to De Kelders.
