Marine Dynamics

Gansbaai, South Africa
Hotel Arena Inn

Instrumental in the first published study of the great white shark population, Marine Dynamics is our chosen dive operator for cage diving. Their custom designed and spacious shark cage diving boat, Slashfin, has a viewing deck, storage cubicles and a cage that comfortably holds up to eight divers. It’s also the only company that guarantees a marine biologist on board every trip, providing a valuable educational boost to your shark diving experience. With over 150 wetsuits every client has a clean and dry wetsuit on each trip. Whale watching and nature cruises are also offered on their second boat, Dream Catcher.

Based at the comfortable Great White House in Kleinbaai, there is a restaurant and bar facilities with service by friendly and welcoming staff. Accommodation is in cosy chalets (disabled facilities available). Upscale accommodation is available across the road, at the Great White Guest House.


Prices from £339 per person for 3 nights including:

  • 3 nights’ Bed & Breakfast accommodation in a twin/double room*
  • 2 Cage Dive Trips (each trip duration: approx. 3-5 hours)**
  • Free visit to African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary

* Accommodation is either in an on-site Chalet at Marine Dynamics’ Great White House in Kleinbaai, or alternatively in a “Hippo Hollows” room at the White Shark Guest House, located just across the road from Marine Dynamics.

** One Cage Dive Trip per day, however this is weather-dependent and trips may need to be moved to other days. Marine Dynamics arrange two Cage Dive Trips per day, so it is also possible to book additional trips on-site, should weather allow.

Price does not include flights or car hire, but these can be booked to suit your requirements. Stays in other parts of South Africa and Mozambique can be added; just tell us what you would like to combine with or ask us for our recommendations.
