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!

We booked a sharkdiving trip, tree months in advance. We were at the booking asked, if we could do the trip one day later, but had to refuse, because of a short time schedule. The day before we should on our trip, it was cancelled because of weather conditions, but we were offered a trip the next day. Funny that... More

We're sorry that this client feels like we've cancelled their shark cage diving trip, simply because we wanted to. At White Shark Diving Company our clients safety comes first. Before anything else. Even if we have to lose money in the process, which is the case every day that we do cancel a trip. There were 19 guests scheduled for... More

Booked this out of the few shark diving companies around Gans/Kleinbaai being that it was the highest rated. Of course there are negative reviews from people but most likely they are A) unaware that people cannot control wild animals and promise they'll do as you like or B) just generally fussy about things (like the smell of fish chum or...
