For some, the thought of diving with a great white shark is terrifying. but if you're craving an adventure-fuelled experience that's going to get your adrenaline rushing, it's perfect.

Great whites are without a doubt one of the scariest predators of the ocean, but they're also intriguing and kind of beautiful in their own way.

Diving with these sharks will give you the opportunity to see them up close, in real life, rather than just in unrealistic shark films like Jaws.

Why do people dive with great white sharks?


It might seem hard to believe that people would actually choose to be dropped into shark-infested waters, but diving with great white sharks is a popular experience.

Some people dive with great white sharks because they love the adrenaline rush of being so close to one of the most dangerous creatures of the ocean.

Others see sharks not just as predators, but as beautiful creatures, and diving with them is the perfect way to see and appreciate them up close, in their natural environment.

When is the best time to dive with great white sharks?


The best time to dive with great white sharks will depend on where you plan on diving. In warm destinations like Australia and South Africa, sharks can usually be seen at all times of year.

But cage diving companies will often recommend you dive between April and June, as this is when seal pups start venturing away from the shore and into the water, which attracts sharks.
