After doing my research we booked with the white shark diving company, it is worth noting some of the reviews below are for shark lady diving company or other dive companies in the area - they are all quite close together and have similar names so make sure you check who you are booking with. Our experience was fantastic, even... More

What an incredible experience! My husband and I were a little nervous at the idea of shark diving and couldn't have chosen a more experienced, enthusiastic, warm and friendly team than White Shark Diving Company. Every single thing was taken care of with a genuine smile and care. The day started with a yummy breakfast as we watched the sun... More

We had a great experience with the Shark Lady Diving Company. They were very accommodating - managing our group experience which included children. The crew was professional and fun, appropriately responsive to those on our trip who were having trouble enjoying the experience or were frightened while in the cage. It can be a long cold day, I wish we... More

This was an amazing experience and we were very lucky to have 4 great whites swimming around the boat for most our time in/on the water. My daughter and I both had 2 trips into the cage. Shark viewing was also excellent from the boat. The crew on the boat were knowledgeable and helpful. I found the crew to be... More

Fantastic experience, staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable - explaining everything about what we could expect given the time of year and really made sure that we got to see as many sharks as possible. Never felt unsafe at all and they took care of everything from picking us up from our Capetown hotel to providing snacks and lunch.

Saw lots of sharks but boat was clearly overcrowded, very hard to put on the wetsuit as they are all wet and I question the hygiene standards in between boat loads of customers. Boat crew was OK but more interested in impressing the young girls rather than cater to all of their customers. We felt that the trip was rushed... More

With so many to chose from it can get confusing, so I took the direction from my accommodations reception and booked with white shark adventures. The cost included full transfers, the dive, light refreshments before the dive and lunch afterwards. Our host and dive master Wiliem (I apologise for the spelling) is clearly very passionate about his job, the environment... More

So you've agreed that you're going to go shark diving but which company do you go with. We searched through loads on TA and finally went with White Shark Diving Co. due to the write ups. Before the detail - yes, we had a great time. I believe there is an early and a later dive! We were collected in... More

The sharks are just fascinating - stunning to watch! Staff were very competent, and all equipment is provided along with clean towels, a nice lunch, snacks and coffee. Felt quite safe in the cage, but still got an adrenaline rush:) The water was chilly but not too bad in the wetsuits provided, and I even wore booties which they provided... More

While we only briefly saw the sharks, we did see three different ones, and everyone got a chance to see the sharks in the water. The water was dark and murky on the day that we went, so visibility was not great. However, I would recommend that anyone who goes, go on the top deck of the boat, as the... More
