Day 1 (December, 31st)
After we've arrived at Cape Town, we'll get a transfer to the Simonstown guesthouse having a break for a swim in the ocean along the way. Later in the evening we'll ring in the new year enjoying majestic ocean views and thus our African trip will begin.
Day 2 (January, 1st)
Ever heard of the Cape of Storms? That's the way sailors used to call the Cape of Good Hope and today we're going to visit this landmark. Get ready to feel the spray of waves of both Indian and Atlantic oceans and then have some fun swimming, sunbathing and mingling with penguins on a sandy beach! We'll also explore Cape Town itself, of course. The city where the two oceans meet is definitely worth seeing.
Day 3 (January, 2nd)
This day is reserved for the Table mountain, which is located on the south bank of the Table bay to the south-west from Cape Town. The Table Mountain is officially on the list of the new seven wonders of the world and it's the landmark's silhouette that you can see depicted on the flag of Cape Town. After we've completed the hiking route we'll spend some time on one of Cape Town's numerous beaches.
Day 4 (January, 3rd)
Get ready to gear up and interact with local fauna closer than ever as we dive in the waters of Hout Bay to get surrounded by fur seals. No worries, though: these curious creatures are only there to make friends with you. Steve Benjamin, a marine biologist, will make sure you get to know something new about these furry buddies and show how to handle the wetsuits, masks and flippers if needed.
Day 5 (January, 4th)
Early in the morning we'll set out for Gansbay – the place where you will see the Great White Shark at astonishingly short distance of arm's length. The cage we're going to be safely locked in is attached to a speedboat, so we'll be watching the scariest predator of the ocean by submerging into the water with our masks on.
Day 6 (January, 5th)
White Sharks are great, but what about the blue ones? The Sharks Explorers team will take us to the warm ocean current blue sharks love to swim in so much. Baiting the sharks with chunks of frozen fish we'll have them get closer and closer and as soon as they gather around the boat we'll dive into the water to take a swim with these graceful sea creatures.
Day 7 (January, 6th)
You'll get some free time to repeat any of the activities listed above if you wish to or visit the sights of Cape Town. You can choose to visit the Cape Town Aquarium or hike up the Lion's head peak – it's up to you!
