Cage Diving in South Africa is a must do activity, and I recommend Great White Shark Tours. The entire experience was fantastic... ease of booking, prompt response to queries prior to trip, well organized trip including breakfast/lunch, excellent staff and crew. Thank you!

Words cannot describe the professionalism and educational experience I had with the GREAT WHITE SHARK TOURS. From pick-up to drop-off, everything was very well organized. The attention to detail for SAFETY for each and every cage diver/viewer was amazing. The crew both on the boat and off the boat were very friendly with killer South African accents that I could hear all Day long. Once in the cage the crew bate the hooks to lure the sharks safely towards the cage as close as possible for your better viewing of these majestic creatures. There is NOTHING more electrifying that starring at a shark in the eyes, 2 feet away from your face knowing that you are in his territory and the only thing keeping you safe is the steel cage that you are in. we were very fortunate to have seen a Great White which was the 1st sighting within 7 weeks since the last sighting. It was the most incredible experience ive had. I highly highly recommend GREAT WHITE SHARK TOURS, I promise to be back once there are more sightings of GREAT WHITES and GREAT WHITE SHARK TOURS will always be my 1st choice. Thank you Brian for leading an amazing crew. As for me your team and your company have my 5⭐. I will be talking about my experience for many years to come, but until my next dive with you, thank you and your team for this fantastic experience.

Friendly staff but a really commercial trip. We only saw seven smaller sharks. Sad that all the tours are marketed widely with the great white shark. Straight in the beginning of the tour the staff stated that they have not seen a great white in a long time. This trip took us close to a nearby bay where all the other "shark cage tour" companies had their viewing points. We thought the diving was done close to Dyer island because the video & discussion in camp was a lot about that area. It was not.

We wish to repudiate certain facts and therefore give our version of the events related to your tour:

• On the morning of the 29th of December you contacted our front office PRO enquiring whether we could
accommodate a booking for two. She replied in the affirmative and explained the situation at present
regarding the lack of Great White sharks.
• Her exact words were: “….the other thing just before you make a final decision, at the moment we have a
lack of great white sharks, all the companies, but what we do see is Copperheads and we’ve got numerous of
them and they are similar to the Great Whites, but at the moment we cannot guarantee Great White
sightings.”
• You replied that you understood the situation and still decided to go on the trip.
• As per the skipper’s record of this trip more than 50 Copper Head sharks, also known as Bronze Whalers,
together with a rare Seven Gill Cow shark was seen at our summer anchor point near Joubert’s Dam, that
day. We do not go to Dyer Island until the sharks appear there again.

We recognize that the customer is always right and apologize for your trip being less than satisfactory.
