To top it all off we then head into the idyllic Cape Winelands region and the dramatic Cape Peninsula on a full day tour. We explore the Cape's rugged coast and visit the scenic Wine Route area to sample some of the country's finest wines and tour the historic town of Stellenbosch.

At the end of your action-packed days of adventure and disovery in the Cape, you return to the Sweetest Guesthouse of your choice to relax and unwind.
Enjoy a full-day Great White Shark Tour to Dyer Island near Gansbaai, setting off from the guesthouse early in the morning. Drive about 2.5 hours from Cape Town to Gansbaai, travelling along the famous Cape Whale Route. Enjoy the rugged coastal scenery and look out for whales (in season), as we head to Gansbaai - the best place to see great white sharks in South Africa and one of the top shark hotspots of the world. Arriving in Gansbaai we have a continental breakfast and an in-depth briefing is presented, before we walk down to Kleinbaai harbour and board the 46 foot (14m) long catamaran. About 25 minutes later we anchor off Dyer Island where we spend two hours cage diving and viewing marine life from the decks of the custom-designed shark cage diving boat.
Here you are lowered into the water in the secure stainless steel cage for your close-up encounter with the great whites - the most feared predators of the ocean. Sightings are almost guaranteed. When you are not diving with the sharks, you can enjoy light snacks and drinks and watch the action from the viewing decks. After our exhilarating dive we return to Gansbaai, via Shark Alley. Back on dry land we have hot soup and bread during the debriefing, before driving back to the guesthouse in Cape Town. Before or after the shark cage dive you have the option of visiting the African Penguin & Seabird Sanctuary in Gansbaai.
This day tour combines the historic town of Stellenbosch and its picturesque wine region with a trip to the scenic Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point.

Explore both the famous Cape Winelands and the rugged coastal areas of the Cape Peninsula in one day! The Cape Winelands and Peninsula tour departs from your Sweetest Guesthouse between 8:00 - 9:00am and returns to Cape Town at around 5:30pm bringing the Cape Town Adventure and Explore Package to an end.
