- Only a 5 minute drive from Kleinbaai Harbour where the Shark boats and a Whale boat launches

- 2 hour drive from Cape Town central and 1 1/2 hours from Cape Town International so great for a weekend getaway
but do work closely with a few great restaurants that will pick you up for your meal and drop you back off at the Guesthouse after. This will free you to have a few glasses of wine with your meal if you have a car or have a choice when dining out even if you do not have transport.
Wash & Go
We offer a late checkout service for all of our guests on early morning shark cage diving tours. After being on the high seas surrounded by Great White Sharks then hopping into the cage surrounded with Tuna blood and Anchovy oil you may not be the best of company on a long car journey. Following your early morning dive you can return to your room and freshen up before heading on to your next destination.
If you do not want to hire a car for your visit we can meet you at the airport or in Cape Town and transfer you through to the Roundhouse as well as a return transfer to the airport or to Cape Town following your stay. Should you not have transport we will drive you down to the harbour for your Shark dives or Whale watching trips and into town should you wish to pop into the shops. We will make your stay as pleasurable and easy as possible without any stresses or hassles.
Shark Diving shuttle bus transfers
We can book you on one of the Shark Cage Diving shuttles from Cape Town daily. The buses leave from Cape Town early morning and leave back to Cape Town early afternoon daily. If you want to stay overnight for a Dive & Stay package or one of our other packages then you can opt for this service which is only R250 per person each way.
Transfers to dinner
We offer free transfers to restaurants if you do not have a vehicle. We will drop you at a restaurant of choice in Gansbaai and once you are finished the restaurant will call us and we will collect you.
We own the central booking office for the White Shark cage diving and Whale watching as well as the local tourism booking office and can book all activities along with your stay. We are here to offer you information and make bookings for accommodation and tours anywhere in the country should you require assistance.
Should you need a new clothes washed we offer a same day laundry service for all guests
