Not only was the experience surreal, but the crew was also incredible. Felt like everyone on the boat was friends with us and they totally made us feel at ease. 10/10 recommend

Seeing the sharks right in front of us was exhilarating- we got lucky swimming with a few great whites and bronze whalers. The hospitality of the staff was also great. Take plenty of motion sickness meds beforehand and you will have an amazing time!! It is truly unforgettable!

Five Star Shark Cage Diving Experience
It is still with adrenaline pumping through my veins that I write this review. We had such an awesome experience yesterday Shark Cage Diving in Gansbaai. My friend and I braved the experience which I ticked off as a 50th first birthday celebration. The conditions were perfect for the 16 of us that climbed into our wetsuits (wetsuits provided) ready to enter the cage 6 at a time. The team with Paul leading the crew on the boat was unbelievably professional and experienced. With this company I felt safe at all times. The sharks were enticed closer to the cage but at all times were respected while they put on a show for us. It is the most amazing experience if you are a wild life lover and want to view animals in a controlled and secure environment. Paul I will with fond memories remember that Ginger tea and lunch that was waiting for me when I got off the boat. I rate White Shark Diving.co as five star.

Best experience ever!
I absolutely loved my time with the white shark diving company!! The shark viewing was a once in a lifetime experience and I so happy that I chose this company to do it with. Everyone was very nice and friendly, and I felt extremely safe while in the cage. They made sure we were comfortable the entire time and provided us with food and snacks along the way. I’d 100% recommend them any time and I can’t wait to go again!

Memories for life!
Early start was followed with a professional Safety induction Loved the way the conservation and safety of the sharks was woven through the talk. We were blessed with a wonderful frenzy of bronze whaler sharks, at least 25 wonderful animals entertained us . All on the boat saw the show with 6-8 divers in the cage.
An experience I will never forget, thank you

Truly unforgettable experience!
A shark stared into my eyes, and we became soulmates. Not only did I find my shark soulmate but Paul; what a perfect man. The staff are all incredible. They showed passion in what they did and were incredibly knowledgeable. They treated us like family which is what made this experience one that I will never forget. It was worth every penny and more. Thank you for such an unforgettable experience and I can’t wait for the opportunity to come back.

Memorable Diving Experience
Today we experienced the beautiful sights of bronze whaler sharks. We enjoyed the amazing visit that will never be forgotten. It definitely changed our perspective of sharks and allowed us to discover the beauty and uniqueness of all the sharks.

Best experience EVER!
Went there with a friend and was surprised breakfast was provided before we departed. Paul was really welcoming and the other Paul, in charge on the boat, was a really fun guide and explained well about sharks. I went in thinking I’d only swim with the usual/normal sharks but after 4 weeks, THE GREAT WHITE SHARK FINALLY MADE A COMEBACK when I was in the cage with other tourists. Pretty sure I saw it swim right in front of our cage after Paul described one. It was huge! Best experience ever! Totally would recommend these guys for your shark cage adventure. They really do it out of passion and you can tell. Food was also served when we got back. UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE EVER!

What an experience!!!
My 24yr old son dived and I watch from the top of the boat and oh my god what a fantastic unbelievable experience for us both I lost count of how many Bronze Whalers there were because of the commotion of them feeding right in front of my son and just hearing his excitement was just fantastic!!
The welcome we received all the safety briefing and food drinks and sense of humour was really nice, these guys really care about your day and the safety of the animals. I would highly recommend the great white shark diving company you will not be disappointed!!!
Thank you all for such a mind blowing experience!!
