It was an awesome experience diving in the cage in Gansbaai with the sharks! It was a dream of mine! White Shark Ventures provided me an ultimate experience and i want to thank them so much! Great team, great people! Everything was perfect!
Myself and a few friends done the great white shark trip through this company with a tour operator (Adrenalin hunters website) in Gaansbai bay. Disappointed to see no great white sharks. On the website a big seller as advertised was a fur seal island which...More
The shark viewing site is about 15 minutes from shore, and all the boats are anchored nearby in the same area. In terms of shark viewing experience, I would think you get similar shark viewing experiences with the other companies since the boats use the...More
Well what can we say, this was the most awesome trip to see the Great Whites in their natural environment! As always with nature you aren’t guaranteed to see what you’ve gone looking for, however today we were not disappointed. The day started with a...More

The worst organization in ten years of my shark-diving activity. Twenty five customers on a tiny ship were knocked together into a bait-ball as sardines on Sardin Run. Respect for the staff to clients is in full accordance with the dolphins' respect for their sardines....More

On all our literature (website, brochures and everywhere else on social media), it clearly states that our boat is licenced by government to safely take a maximum of 25 passengers. Ample photos and specs on our boat (including the maximum passengers allowed), are also available...More
Had a great service from start to finish transfers where on time driver was a very pleasant person which was also our skipper, unfortunately we never seen any sharks, suppose this is to be expected when encountering nature, I felt the crew was very experienced,...More
Great trip - from the organisation, briefing, breakfast and equipment to the crew who re obviously very passionate about what they do.
I had some questions before the trip about the ethics of the company, how intrusive they were to the sharks and how much...More
Wow, this was by far the most awesome thing I have ever done!!! White Shark Ventures was an amazing company and the crew was wonderful. I booked for 3 days of cage diving and we saw great whites and bronze whalers each trip. The last...More

did not use SCUBA because the visibility at the time of year we were there was only about 10-15ft and it was explained to us that the scuba bubbles tend to make the sharks really wary so they will not come in close to find out what is ther making the noise whereas if the visibility was better, say 40-50ft then the sharks could see what was making the noise and then even though they are wary would be able to see the origin of the bubble noise from a distance and then come in slowly to investigate as well as check out the food source. There was no snorkel because the best way to see the sharks without scuba or weights attached to you is to stand in the cage with your feet tucked under the bar close to the bottom of the cage and grip the upper bar with your hands, then when the sharks come in close ( the crew will tell you ) you can use both your feet and your hands pull yourself down to see the animals up close under the water. Just hold your breath and relax and you will see that you can stay under for several seconds. Also as stated in the other reply you get to see some really terriffic action on the surface too.
When you are not in the cage go to the top of the boat for the best shots and vis.
Hope this helped. We had a ball and I know you will too!
