Shark cage diving

For the more adventurous amongst us, there is so much to do in Cape Town. Our perfect summer weather means action junkies can easily get their fix. In a previous post I discussed our blue skies. Find that post here – Cape Town blue skies. I mentioned our clean air in an older post, read that article here – Cape Town cleanest air.

Think activities like surfing, sky diving, rock climbing, quad biking, sandboarding, abseiling, jet skis, bungi jumping and of course the ever popular shark cage diving. Try these two links for more on packages, tours and outings. Outdoor action Cape Town and Adventure tours Cape Town.

The shark cage diving usually includes a bit of a tour of the bay. You get to see little islands and sea life. Then you are kitted out in diving gear and jump into a cage. They throw meat into the water to attract the sharks and before long you are nose to nose with a man eating shark. Except you have the big bars of your cage keeping you safe. Phew! A bit scary for me.

And if that is still not enough then head to Ratanga Junction where you can have a couple of white knuckle roller coaster rides to release more adrenalin. Have a look at what they have to offer here – roller coaster rides Cape Town. Right next door to Ratanga Junction is Canal Walk shopping mall. Those who prefer more docile pursuits can exercise their credit cards.
