We thought it would be an interesting combination, a full day of wine tasting before you meet the Great White Sharks.The first day is our ultimate Cape Winelands experience with all the bells and whistles included. We then take you to Hermanus which is very close to the Shark Diving operation at Gansbaai, this means you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn as you are already close to the action! Another advantage is that you do not have a long distance to travel after the Sharks, and you have time to enjoy this really special region as well! A very popular tour and it comes highly recommended by our previous clients!
3 DAY WINELANDS & GREAT WHITE SHARKS ITINERARY
CAPE WINELANDS TOUR
Without a doubt one of the most alluring activities in Cape Town is a visit to the wine country with its vast and verdant beauty, historical wine estates and world famous wines! On this day tour you will enjoy tasting wines at a selection of exquisite estates in the Franschhoek and Stellenbosch regions. The Cape Wine route was the first commercial wine route in the world and today it is regarded as one of the best! Lunch will be enjoyed at Boschendal Wine Estate in the form of a picnic lunch or in Franschhoek at one of their fine restaurants. After an absorbing day in the winelands we head over the mountains to the seaside town of Hermanus.

GREAT WHITE SHARK CAGE DIVING
After breakfast we depart from your hotel for a meeting with the worlds most feared and misunderstood predators, the GREAT WHITE SHARK. Shark Cage Diving takes place at Gansbaai, which is about an hour’s drive from Hermanus. The boat trip to Dyer Island and Shark Alley takes about half an hour and then you wait for the predators to arrive! If you are not keen to go into the cage then you are able to observe all the action from the deck, also most entertaining and exciting! After the shark experience, we head back to Hermanus but not before sampling some craft beer at the Birkenhead Breweries.

COASTAL TOUR TO CAPE TOWN
On this day you have a variety of things to enjoy. For example shopping at the local market which is just a stones through from the hotel, some fascinating museums, or a swift walk along the cliffs in front of your hotel. The morning is free to explore Hermanus. After lunch we depart from Hermanus to follow the coastal scenic Route back to Cape Town. Along the way you will experience a fascinating Penguin Colony at Stoney Point also Harold Porter Botanical Garden and then Clarence Drive Coastal Route. We arrive back in Cape Town at around 18h00.
