Pyramid Rocks is a popular dive site in Cape Town. Divers visit this spot mainly to see the special seven-gill sharks. The site is characterized by a rock pyramid that rises about one meter above the water surface. The vegetation consists mainly of kelp forest that is home to colorful invertebrates and large reef fish.
Pyramid Rocks can be reached from the shore. The site is located near a pyramid-shaped rock. Lower yourself into the water and look for the seven gill sharks. The seven gill shark belongs to the cow shark family. They are slow swimming prehistoric looking animals that lazily swim around in the dive site. They can grow up to 3 meters long and they have the nerve wrecking habit of swimming straight at divers.
Diving in Pyramid Rocks is possible all year round. Dive in winter (between June and September) for less wind and surf. The road from the parking lot to the entry point is difficult. Difficult entry.
