Blue and Mako Shark Trip

Cape Town

Activity Description

This adventurous trip takes you off Cape Point in search of pelagic sharks such as the magnificent Mako and Blue Sharks.

This is a beautiful trip as you get to see Cape Point from the ocean and it offers stunning sunrise photo opportunities.

With an array of colour from azure coloured waters to the spectacular silver Makos and cobalt coloured Blue sharks, one’s imagination is transported to a world beyond the sea.

Blue sharks are streamlined and can reach lengths of up to 3.5 metres. They have well-developed eyes enabling them to see visibly both in deep waters or surface situations. One of their most prominent features are their long pectoral fins.

Shortfin Mako sharks, are silver and bluish in colour and are more stoutly built than the blues reaching lengths of over 4 meters. Mako’s are the fastest swimming shark species.

Join us on this breath-taking trip to experience the pelagic sharks of the deep.
