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

Great company! This was a must do for us in Cape Town- I mean, you HAVE TO cage dive with sharks if you are in that area, its where 90% of the WORLD'S population of them are. So cool. Anyway, White Shark Diving Co. picked us up in Cape Town and transported us and some others we picked up along... More

Boat is too old and small size for 20 customers (exclude the crews) to be comfortable during 20 min in one way route for the shark. Toilet is awful. Engine got damaged. However, the complimentary food was so delicious. Not planning to recommend it to others. Unprofessional

I booked a shark dive for 25th April and very quickly got a lovely reply from the company. I was in Capetown on business so had to organise transport to Gansbraai where the dive would take place. I was picked up on time and we headed down the coast for 2 hours. We got there as the sun was rising... More

We have recently returned from a holiday in SA and we drove past White Shark Diving Co in Gaansbaai. The only reason we didn't book a trip was because we went cage diving with this company a few years ago and it was such an excellent experience, I was concerned the second dive wouldn't be so awesome. When we went... More

Cage diving with great white sharks was at the top of our list of things to do in South Africa and White Shark Diving Co provised us with a perfect experience for it. We got picked up from our hotel just after 4am (on a Sunday!) where we were the first pick-up for the minibus transit. After a handful of... More

Great experience on a stunning autumn morning on March. The boat was the first to arrive out in Shark Alley in the morning, which paid off as we were welcomed by a beautiful 5 metre great white as soon as we docked. Just incredible. The viewing experience from the boat is great value in itself, the sharks just kept coming.... More

We had an amazing time out with them and saw some big great white sharks. It's unpretentious good fun! These guys know what they are doing and do it with grace and humility (something I have found lacking with other tour companies.) Plus lasagna has never tasted so good!
