Area Info:

Van Dyks Bay is a suburb in Gansbaai, home to shark cage diving and whale watching in season. From the harbour, boats depart daily with cages that allow visitors to get ‘up close and personal’ with the Great White Sharks. Across the street, there is a mini grocery market that stocks essentials, cash withdrawal facilities, a restaurant, and a fuel station. Cape Town International Airport is located 156 km away. The area around Gansbaai has been dubbed the “coast of contrast” and is covered in unspoiled vegetation of the Cape Floral Kingdom. Despite being the smallest of the world’s six floral kingdoms, it is the richest with 9000 species. Other activities to be enjoyed in Gansbaai include horse riding, visiting neighbouring wine farms, kayaking, whale watching, quad biking, and exploring the nearby Walker Bay Nature Reserve. The reserve boasts the Klipgat Cave, which is one of three places where old remains have been excavated in South Africa. It is one of the most important historical sites in the Western Cape, also holding claim to having the earliest evidence of the presence of sheep-herding Khoi people, whose descendants were the first to erect settlements in the Gansbaai area.
