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

If you were ever worried about doing this...then don't be! From the moment you are welcomed into the club house you are made to feel comfortable and safe...the captain Brian introduces himself and explains whAt is going to be happening...we had to wait for nearly 3 hours and moved 3 times to try and spot one then we had 2...

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
