The Montagu Course was originally designed by Gary Player and is a much celebrated parklands course that has previously been ranked as #1 in South Africa, and currently ranks #6 (2014).

The Links at Fancourt is without a doubt the most impressive piece of golf design and construction ever in South Africa.

The trip from the dock to the shark site is only about ten minutes so there is no long and tedious boat ride. The bay is also very protected so our sea conditions are normally very calm and comfortable. The crew will provide a briefing concerning the cage diving on the boat. To find the sharks they have to bait and chum. The baits and chum are natural marine products. It can take several minutes or several hours for the first shark to appear, you need to understand that nothing is guaranteed. Once you have sharks at the boat, the cage will go into the water and the diving will begin. Topside viewing is exciting for the non-diver and as the shark works very close to the surface you will have plenty of opportunity to take some action shots. A trip generally lasts for +- 4 hours and they offer a light lunch, snacks and drinks on the boat.
