An absolute MUST DO if you're around Cape Town or Gansbaai!!! The guys were incredibly professional, attentive and did everything they could do make the experience as unreal as possible. It's not a huge breakfast so be aware and bring something to eat for the morning if you like to have breakfast, but the lunch afterwards was great! They accommodated... More

I did not know what to expect. Shark cage diving with Great Whites sounds so scary. I was blown away. It was a super early morning start and we were met with the most friendly staff at the location. The crew was professional, informative and friendly and we were relaxed by the time the boat was route to the sharks.... More

We first wanted to do the breaching tour, but the "breaching season" had not started yet. So they called us and informed us about that and we decided to do the cage diving instead. So great support and information around the booking and then also at the spot. Super nice team, with a lot of know how and very helpful... More

I booked this Great White Shark Cage dive on line with White Shark Diving Company. They answered my e-mails promptly. Paid about $126.00 U.S. in advance. I was picked up at my hotel in Cape Town at 4:30AM for a 2 hour drive to Gansbaai. They served a nice continental breakfast. We had a briefing about safety on the boat... More

I was picked up from my brothers home in Cape Town and taken straight to Gansbaai. The boat trip was a little ropey... More

My friends and I were looking forward to our cage shark dive. The day before our scheduled dive I received a conformation email indicating what time we were supposed to arrive. There was a disclaimer in the email that said the dive was weather dependent and I would receive communication by 8am if the dive was going to be cancelled.... More
