A cage dive in the harbor, an Ethical Handling and Angling Workshop, and a Research Boat Trip to the Local Penguin and Sea Bird Sanctuary are all part of a magical first three days!

The end of week one has two more cage diving boat trips that bring you within feet of majestic marine life, a snorkeling survey for the research project, and a trip to beautiful Hermanus for exploring and learning!

Dive into your surroundings on wonderful excursions like Fat Biking, Shopping Trips, and a Wine Farm Tour!
