Crew were excellent, bated sharks in for some nice photos and were very helpful when we asked questions.

Whatever you do, go with this company!! The staff are so welcoming and kind and they really go the extra mile for you when you're out on the boat. We stayed an extra hour out at sea just so everyone could have an encounter with a shark, to me that shows how dedicated they are to customer service. The early... More

I can’t accurately describe how exciting and exhilarating it is to see great whites in open water. We were super lucky and had multiple sharks come to the boat during our trip out and some of them nearly touched the cage. It was unbelievable and definitely the best activity I did while in South Africa. They supplied us with breakfast... More

The good thing is: We saw some Great White Sharks. Actually the guys took us out on a boat, the y threw some fish into the waters to attract the sharks, but we did not learn anything. Focus was on shooting a film to sell afterwards. Water was tremendously cold and many people just decided to stay out of the... More

Nothing short of excellent from the time we were picked up. The pick up was prompt the breakfast was great, the safety briefing was to the point. After doing some research we found that shark activity is best during this time and we were not disappointed. Biggest seen on the day was a 4m great white. It's really something To... More

I'm a little hesitant with cage diving bc of the negative impacts it has on the sharks. that being said Mary's talk before the cage literally gave me chills it was so inspiring in getting awareness out about how fragile this species is that it makes cage diving a good thing. the day was great they feed you the entire...

Since I was a little kid I dreamt of seeing great white sharks close. The company made my dream come true this week, when I crossed the Atlantic to dive with those gorgeous animals in Gansbaai, South Africa. WSDC provides great service, from online booking to local logistics, and their team is very friendly and welcoming. Everything went on exactly... More

This is not for the faint hearted. The water is cold and the 5mm neoprene wet suit may not keep you warm but it is an incredible adventure. You get into a metal cage strapped to the boat and they toss out a tuna head on a rope as bait. Whenever a shark approaches the bait is pulled up and... More

This was a great company to go with, and was everything I thought it would be. Very friendly people, and enough time to see these great predators in the water. I hardly ever buy the video of the experience, but the guy they have doing it is great. The drive out was beautiful as well. Well done!
