Something I've always wanted to do and it was well worth waking up at three in the morning for. Amazing to see the sharks up close and personnel could have stayed down there for hours watching them swim about. Well organised and professional they were very helpful when I mixed up my booking.

Staff was wonderful and helpful with the exception of Karin, the gal who works at the desk to the right of the entrance. Karin is obviously not an owner because anyone who has made an investment in a business would never treat customers the way she treated us. Condescending, sarcastic, and impolite. Our group presented to the desk the day... More

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
