Owner description: For a memorable and unique Cape Town adventure, nothing can be more exhilarating than a cage diving and surface viewing tour to meet the mighty great white shark. One of the few places in the world where white sharks can be observed regularly at any time of the year, Gansbaai is known as the shark diving capital of the world. The watery habitat of the apex predator is not glamorous and this tour is highly weather dependent - this is mother nature at her most temperamental and raw; only when you see your first flash of steely grey sliding purposefully towards the boat, will you understand the magnetic beauty of the great white shark. Indescribable. No previous diving experience is necessary to enter the cage and everything you will need to fully enjoy the tour is provided, from your meals, to your dive equipment and even the convenient and comfy shuttle that Shark Zone can provide to get you there. As Cape Town's #1 booking agent for great white shark tours, Shark Zone will make sure you get the best deal, hassle-free!

Reviewed May 22, 2014 via mobile

Stephen and Tracy just blew us away!! They took us to a better place to experience not only a shark dive, but we also got to see a shark fully breach the water. They then took us for a full tour of Cape Point and, unfortunately, a friend wasn't feeling well, so they took us to a doctor and Tracy even went in with her to ensure she was properly taken care of... This is an experience worth having FOR SURE!!!

“Most exhilarating experience!”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

You cannot come to Cape Town and not contact Shark Zone. This is without a doubt the best and most professional company. From start to finish we were taken care of and felt like celebrities. No where on earth will you ever find a better experience.

If you want to dive with the great whites and experience nature in its most perfect setting. Shark Zone is your company. Not only that they have the greatest respect for nature.

Can't wait to come back and contact Shark Zone again!!!!!

“Bunch of hucksters”

Prepaid for a diving experience. Inclement weather and traffic accident prevented us from making the dive, promised a refund. Despite several contacts and a request for my Bank details NO REFUND after nearly eight months!

“Great Experience. Above and beyond what we expected”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We booked a cage dive with Shark Zone in mid November 2012 and the overall experience was great. We drove ourselves so can't comment on the transportation. They provided a decent breakfast (certainly more food and variety than expected). We then headed out. There were 14 people on our boat and the cage fits 6 people so there were three different groups. The crew was great - very friendly and helpful. They had enough wetsuits and snorkel masks for everyone. They also allowed everyone the opportunity to go into the cage twice. Not that it's in their control, but there were seven sharks during our trip, with the largest being ~4 meters (12 feet). After the dive they even slowed the boat when they found some whales so we could all get pics. We ended the adventure with some lunch as we watched the video they made of the day. Overall, it was a very enjoyable and pleasant experience. This is the only time we've ever been shark diving so I can't compare them to other companies, but I would highly recommend Shark Zone. Everything was professional, enjoyable and better than we had expected. 5 stars!
