Are you ready to learn more about the most amazing animal in the Ocean? We are not just focusing on the Great White but also on the smaller ones like the Pyjama cat sharks, Leopard cat sharks, Shy sharks, Gully sharks and the 7 gill sharks.
The purpose of the Shark Awareness Specialty Course is to familiarise the diver with the proper techniques for diving with sharks. When encountering sharks, we should leave minimal impact on the sharks habitat and behavior.
Our courses run from our Kommetjie dive shop. The Kommetjie shop in very close to all popular dive sites both on the Atlantic Ocean and False Bay which makes it perfect positioned for Scuba Courses in Cape Town.
We also offer transport from our Long Street shop and all Hotels, B&B's and Backpackers in Cape Town (center).
We can start PADI Specialty courses 7 days a week. You have to book at least 1 day in advance (longer in advance is ok). Exact schedules we discuss with you personally as it depends on the boat dives, weather and your own schedule.
We meet at the Kommetjie shop at 09.00am or 08.00am at the Long Street shop for people who require transport. We confirm all times the day before the activity.
