The breakfast had no bacon. No bacon?! I thought I'd be underwater... Nope. The cage is tied to the boat and about a quarter of the cage is above water. You stay above water until they tell you to go down, at which point you hold your breath and use the cage to pull yourself underwater. Just before we got... More

We had booked cage diving with sharks with another company but they cancelled our trip and never called us. So before I freak out our hotel suggested to make a booking with White Shark Ventures, which we did after a quick search about them. What a good surprise. They confirmed everything (although the trip was on the next day, in... More

People are really friendly and informative. The whole trip was great however we were so excited to get in the cage - I have done a dive with these guys 6 years ago also - we got down and visibility was okay but a little difficult to see. Spent 10 minutes in the water the first time and then got... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Although we strive to offer all our guests the same amount of time inside the cage, we're dealing with Mother Nature and sometimes we unfortunately have to return to land, due to changes in the conditions (sea- and/or weather). On this day we were out at sea for 2 hours, 15 minutes.... More

It was my dream come true to come face to face with these amazing strong animals, and thank you to the team of The White Shark Diving Company for the most unbelievable experience for me and my partner. The tour is very educational and fun! Highly recommend!

The most important thing is to remember that the ocean is NOT a zoo - so do take 2 days for this really unique experience! This way, if you don´t see sharks at your first trip, you can try again. We came to South Africa mainly for the Great White Sharks and we had two amazing days with them. We... More

I really could not rate this company highly enough! From my first initial enquiry to drop off at our hotel, they were fantastic. We had initially planned to rent a car in Cape town and so I had booked the shark diving without the transfers and they kindly emailed me directions to get there along with a very detailed description...

We had initially booked our trip with another company going from False Bay but the season ended early in False Bay so they arranged for us to go with the White Shark Diving Co. instead. We were a little worried that our trip may not go ahead as it was one of the main reasons for travelling to SA. In... More

This is an amazing trip and I can recommend this to everybody. The staff is very experienced and nowhere during the trip and/or in the cage you feel unsafe. Due to bad wheather conditions they had to postpone the trip twice but they kept me informed all the times. I'm just happy that we finally made it. Value for money!... More

After doing some research on which company would be the best at servicing my VERY perfectionist needs, I'm really happy about the choice I made. I was quite apprehensive and nervous upon arrival, but the staff and crew, soon made me feel at ease. Thank you for an awesome trip and for changing my mind about these beautiful creatures. We...

Being only a few weeks out from seeing a white shark get in to a cage in Mexico, tension is naturally running a bit high when it comes to shark diving at the moment. With that said, never once did I feel unsafe throughout my experience. Communication: White Shark Diving Company's communication was absolutely fantastic throughout the entire process -... More
