After the formalities and a light breakfast, we headed out into the depths and were informed it could take up to one hour for the Sharks to arrive. After seeing no sharks on one area out at... More

We booked with this company as a result of a friend's recommendation. He said this was one of the smaller boats available and accordingly a better experience. Our group of 6 did the shark breaching and the cage diving experience. SHARK BREACHING TRIP This involved 9 of us setting out from Kleinsbaii at c.8.00 a.m. towards Dyer's Island, dropping the...

Let me start by saying that these guys really went the extra mile, we were having no luck with the sharks approaching our boat, although we could see them in the water, and these guys went out of their way and spent 2 extra hours until we finally got our amazing cage dive with a beautiful 4m white shark. Fantastic... More

The day started out rough- my roomate and I overslept and we missed the 5 am pick up. However, the company was great and sent a private car for the two of us! We had the best time chatting with our driver who took it upon himself to give us a tour of Gansbaai himself and stopped along the way... More

I was disappointed in the white shark diving company. After reading many reviews, I settled on this company as they seamed mostly positive. I will start with the pros. Pros: - We saw a great white - snacks before and after were good Cons: - Boat was PACKED with people, seemed a little unsafe if there was an emergency. -... More

We regret to learn that this client felt that he had a less than satisfactory experience/trip with our company. Our vessel can easily accommodate and is licenced to carry 22 guests and 5 crew members in total. During the specific trip in question, we only had 15 guests onboard, of which 1 person preferred not to participate in the cage... More

The weather was shocking, cold & rough seas, which made our experience all the more memorable. We saw the sharks up close and it was magnificent. It is a definite "MUST DO" activity if visiting Cape Town. The White Shark Diving Co has awesome staff, big thumbs up to them. We will remember this forever. Thank you to each and... More
