Honestly if your looking for a shark dive any of the places around this area will work for you. They all anchor in the same spot just slightly away from each other. I liked the breakfast they served and the lunch after was OK. Communication on board could have been a little better, it all felt a little rushed. However,... More

Our group got picked up around 4 am in Cape Town, transported to Gansbaii. Once there we got greeted by the amazing personal of WSDC, had some breakfast (provided), and got briefed. Around 8 am I believe we got on the boat and sailed out for :20 min or so. Once they let the cage in the water, we had... More

I was picked up in Cape Town at 4:20 a.m. and transported by van to Gansbaii. The boat held twenty passengers so everyone got 30+ minutes in the water. Sharks were present the entire time so there was lots to see when in the water and when on deck. Staff was very professional. The van back to Cape Town arrived... More

I booked the dive last year and had told all my frieds so many times, I'm sure I was boring them. The day before our dive it was cancelled due to high winds. But the next morning we were picked up at 4:30am in Cape Town for a two hour drive to Gansbaai. All the other folk were as excited... More

We went in January 2014 and in October 2014. Wile not seeing any sharks in October (we have the vouchers though and will go again soon:)) we were super lucky in January. The sharks were there from the start and stayed the whole time. I quite like the fact that the boat is small and therefore spots are limited. That... More

Very experienced reassuring staff. Full Safety briefing. And had a brilliant day where we saw lots of sharks. I suppose that's all luck of the draw tho. Would defiantly recommend. A must do.

We booked a shark dive with the White Shark company. We had pickup in Cape Town and drove to the office in Gansbaau, We were welcomed with a lovely breakfast and friendly shop assistant, and then a quick shark dive briefing. Then we took to the sea, which is a 15-20 minute boat ride to the shark alley. As soon... More

For many years I dream that I can see the Great white shark from eye to eye. Therefore South Africa was one of my favorite destinations for holiday. Before I booked a company for cage diving I read a lot of reviews and studied some websites. Pretty soon I realized that I wanted a company with a small boat and... More

Went out and initially saw little but operators gave us the chance for a no-cost sevond trip & wow! Mind blowing. A great experience that was really worth doing & great crew. Tip - Take sea sick pills though - we did and it showed!
