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

It was a really amazing experience! Very unique also by the professionals people (Lalo &Bobby) involved from "White Shark Diving Company"! I strongly reccomend everyone who arrive in Cape Town area in South Africa! It is totally safe and for shure you will not regret the decision! :)

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

This was a great company to work with. I booked a private charter trip for 20 people and they picked us up early in the morning from Cape Town to take us to the boat. They picked us up from our hotel and there was nothing more to think about. They produced a great video, provided breakfast and lunch and... More

This company is very professional. The safety briefing is spot on and covers all the questions you may have. These guys ensure you have a good time and that everyone gets to see the sharks close up. Weather is a massive factor when doing this but I was lucky yesterday with a great group, great weather and great sharks. Trompie... More

The operators were professional and friendly. The crew gave us interesting and accurate information about the sharks. The boat was just a bit uncomfortable to get changed on . . . Not quite enough space. All in all it was a wonderful experience and we got to see 5 great white sharks up close! Being so close to these amazing... More

THE GREAT WHITE SHARK!!!!! And I was not disappointed... From the early morning pick-up at my hotel, through the safety briefings (with... More

Thrilling experience, saw a lot of White Sharks, but with some negative points. Breakfast was not to speak off. For lunch didnt take dietary remarks into consideration. With this in mind I found the value for money a bit off. Why put on/ take off your wetsuit at sea in close space on a boat and not at shore?

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
