“Great Day Out”
Reviewed July 9, 2010

An excellent day out from Cape Town. Picked up at the Guest House and taken to Gansbaai for the day.

We saw 4 sharks and got some great pictures.

A well run tour by a knowledgable team.

Thank JohnA1969

“Great Shark Diving Company”
Reviewed March 10, 2010

These guys did a great job of taking us out and showing us the beauty of the Great White Shark. They were very clear on the safety procedures and on what we needed to stay safe and have a great time with the sharks. We saw 9 sharks out of season which was excellent and got some real close ups while in the cage. It was an excellent day and these guys made it a safe, pleasurable and altogether great experience. I would definitely recommend White Shark Projects to others who wanted to see these cool animals at close quarters.

“Great people who are passionate about shark conservation”
Reviewed August 26, 2009

I managed two outings with this company. Included in the price was breakfast, towels, drinks and food on the boat and then lunch on our return.

They are located in Kliensbaai Harbour with a 60 second walk to the boat. A full saftey briefing took place in the shop on the 1st day and onboard due to tides on the 2nd day. There was only 12 people on the boat which is made for 30 so it was nice and spacious.

They run a volunteer program so there were plaenty of crew to help get kitted up in the 7mm wetsuits which were dry. They have enough to provide two sets, one for the morning outing and one for the afternoon.

There was a lot of information about the sharks and their behaviour which was very interesting. The trip was filmed by Julia and offered for sale at the end of the trip R350 and was available to buy 10mins after we had watched it in the shop. No 2 weeks wait for postage here - well done WSP.

Breakfast was toast, ham, eggs, cereals etc and on the baot there were crisps, sandwiches and cold drinks with lunch on our return. Soup, cakes and even home made scones with jam and cream.

At the end of the days with WSP we came away wanting more having really enjoyed our time with the team and the of course the sharks.

We got a certificate to prove that we had completed the dive. I say dive as that is what the providers call it but it's really breath holding in a cage surrounded by beautiful creatures.

WSP provides a caring and great value for money service and would definately use them again.
