One of the few places in the world where white sharks can be observed regularly at any time of the year, Gansbaai is known as the shark diving capital of the world. The watery habitat of the apex predator is not glamorous and this tour is highly weather dependent - this is mother nature at her most temperamental and raw; only when you see your first flash of steely grey sliding purposefully towards the boat, will you understand the magnetic beauty of the great white shark. Indescribable. No previous diving experience is necessary to enter the cage and everything you will need to fully enjoy the tour is provided, from your meals, to your dive equipment and even the convenient and comfy shuttle that Shark Zone can provide to get you there. As Cape Town's #1 booking agent for great white shark tours, Shark Zone will make sure you get the best deal, hassle-free! « less

My husband had a shark cage dive booked with another operator in Hermanus who had to cancel due to bad weather in Cape Town. Luckily our hotel manager knew of Shark zone and was able to get my hubby on a trip this morning out of False Bay. Turns out it was a huge blessing In disguise as False Bay... More

I recently visited Cape Town and only had a few days there so pre booked a Shark trip with another company. On arrival the weather was terrible and the trip was cancelled. The hotel recommended I contact Shark Zone. These guys were just great, they go from Simon's Town out to Seal Island in False Bay, this is slightly more... More

Greedy captain will take you to sea no matter the weather conditions. When I had this unfortunate experience, 5 out 9 people (who are too many for the boat, anyway) were sea sick. It was the worst hour and a half of my whole life.

Stephen and Tracy just blew us away!! They took us to a better place to experience not only a shark dive, but we also got to see a shark fully breach the water. They then took us for a full tour of Cape Point and, unfortunately, a friend wasn't feeling well, so they took us to a doctor and Tracy... More

You cannot come to Cape Town and not contact Shark Zone. This is without a doubt the best and most professional company. From start to finish we were taken care of and felt like celebrities. No where on earth will you ever find a better experience. If you want to dive with the great whites and experience nature in its... More

Prepaid for a diving experience. Inclement weather and traffic accident prevented us from making the dive, promised a refund. Despite several contacts and a request for my Bank details NO REFUND after nearly eight months!

We booked a cage dive with Shark Zone in mid November 2012 and the overall experience was great. We drove ourselves so can't comment on the transportation. They provided a decent breakfast (certainly more food and variety than expected). We then headed out. There were 14 people on our boat and the cage fits 6 people so there were three... More

I went on the shark cage diving trip with Shark Zone. It was a very early start as we had to be out on the water by 7.00 when the sharks feeding time is! We left Cape Town around four in the morning and travelled to Gansbaai the shark capital of the world. I went with my younger sister who... More

Shark Zone in Cape Town does an OK trip but their promise to send things like pictures later they never follow through. The organization overall of the group is pretty weak. There are lots of other providers - use one of them rather than Shark Zone.
