This was an amazing experience and we were very lucky to have 4 great whites swimming around the boat for most our time in/on the water. My daughter and I both had 2 trips into the cage. Shark viewing was also excellent from the boat. The crew on the boat were knowledgeable and helpful. I found the crew to be attentive to each person as needed (not just the pretty ones as another reviewer commented) This really is a "bucket list" experience and I beleive we had an exceptional experience with hardly any wait for the sharks to appear and then the constant activity of the sharks while we were out.
The boat was a bit crowded with 20 people all trying to put on wet suits - not an easy task! - but considering 6 people were always in the cage once we were doing the actual shark diving it was roomy enough. There isn't really any storage space for your stuff - so travel light on the boat.
I did find there to be a bit of unexplained waiting around prior to getting on the boat - but that is probably reflective of my US cultural expectations of being fully informed.
I can't say enough about Toni and the booking staff. They were so helpful to me as I planned this trip to Capetown, recommending lodging, very quick responses to my questions and getting me driving directions when our plans changed at the last minute and we decided to drive from Capetown to Gansbaai - what a beautiful drive!
