Diving in Sea Point to Hout Bay
Lucy Corne / Lonely Planet

Conveniently located near Sea Point’s accommodation, this operator runs diving courses and offers regular dives around the Cape, focusing on themes from shipwrecks to cow sharks, including shark-cage dives.

There has been much controversy regarding shark-cage diving, with detractors arguing that it is leading to increased shark attacks, while others (including some marine scientists and environmentalists) believe that it is a positive educational tool to encourage conservation.
