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.
