First , I must say. The White Shark Diving Company is very professional. Right from the day I booked for a trip in their website http://www.sharkcagediving.co.za/ , they were very responsive and polite to all the queries I had . My trip was booked for 15th Sep, I got an email on 13th Sep saying that the weather is not... More

We were booked on this company by another on short notice,we were picked up from our hotel early hours of morning ,that was the only thing the family complained about on the vacation. From the breakfast to the brief training and the choppy ride in the boat,that felt a little cramped with almost 16 people plus crew, little space to... More

This was one of those experiences you just have to do once, and we're glad we chose the White Shark Diving Company. There's a lot about this experience that isn't fun, like the 4:00am hotel pick up and the freezing temps, but once in the cage none of that matters. This company uses a small boat and an expert, engaging... More

While I must admit that seeing great whites in their natural habitat up close is not a given deal, it's pretty close to being a sure thing in this part of the world. We went out with 5 other boats all anchored 100-200 meters away from each other. Everyone saw lots of sharks except us. Most of us never even... More

Although we do have a 98 - 99% success rate, unfortunately shark sightings can never be guaranteed. We do our utmost best to offer our guests a close encounter with the Great Whites and understand the disappointment should we not being able to find them, but we also explain before each trip that we're dealing with wildlife and Mother Nature....

I thoroughly enjoyed not only the opportunity to see Great White's up close but the experience WSDC offered. Although it's an early start if being collected from Kaapstad, it's worth it. On arrival a simple breakfast is offered but enough to keep you going. A thorough safety briefing is made before signing all the necessary paperwork. Snacks and drinks are... More

Let me tell you all types of thoughts were rushing through my head as I ventured from Cape Town to Gansbaai to find the White Shark Diving Company. Once there we enjoyed a nice breakfast and training before going out on the boat. Shortly after a 10-15 minute ride we began chumming to lure the sharks towards our boat! Again,... More

We had a great time with the White Shark Diving Co. We saw three sharks and got to spend as much time in the cage as we wanted to, since many people got in and out after they saw a few sharks. We had 12 passengers on the boat and it was a little crowed - anymore would have been... More
