Great bunch of guys. Everyone was well briefed before departure and everyone's safety was highly considered. Room for 22 on board. Great trip and we did get to see a great white shark as well as bronze whaler sharks and a couple of large stingrays.
We felt very fortunate to only have five of us (our group) in the cage the whole time (we saw other boats with 12 people packed in like sardines!) Because we saw the great white at the very end they let us stay out a little longer. Everyone who was with us from the boat captain to the marine biologist were very friendly and informative and fun to be around. Then a twenty minute ride back and they had a nice warm lasagna waiting for us. There is a shower if you do want to rinse off quickly afterwards as well. The GoPro video they create is amazing and worth the purchase. It may be a bit of a drive from Cape Town but we are glad we made the trek!
WSDC proved to me that they respect the environment, the wildlife and their clients! I brought my fiancée for a trip in S.A. and Namibia and made several arrangements to get the most out of our trip without costing so much money. The WSDC staff provided one of the best services I ever had regarding the reservation process! Through several emails, they took the time to answer all of my questions and provided several tips for our stay in S.A. On the boat, Mitch and his team are a wonderful group of people!. They definitely know what they're doing. Everything is secure and fun! Book with them without any hesitation!
Had a great trip with white shark diving company. We were lucky enough to see 3 great white sharks and a few bronze sharks. Got plenty of time to view the sharks and was welcomed back to the harbour with a nice lunch.
Excellent activity. The staff were amazing and provided an excellent service. The cage diving itself was magnificent and let us see the majestic sharks up close and personal. Would really recommend.
Cage diving with sharks in South Africa has been on my bucket list forever, and this company definitely met, and exceeded, all my expectations. We saw four bronze whalers, but no great white sharks. Even though we didn't see any white sharks, the experience was great! And booking with a different company won't make the white sharks magically appear, so you may as well go with the best option. I did the hotel pick up, and the driver was on time and the van was comfortable for the two hour drive from Cape Town to Gansbaai. They took video footage throughout the day and edited it while we were eating lunch. I definitely recommend purchasing the video because they got great footage of the sharks. Overall, 10/10 experience.

It is hard to choose between the tour companies but having spoken to a few of them, I would say this is the best one. Staff are wonderful - they take care of the entire experience, including a warm lunch afterwards, and also inform about shark and marine conservation and the important research they're conducting. Any wildlife related experience must be done with care and they've done an excellent job working with wildlife and allowing us to have an amazing experience. You have to be lucky to see a white shark as sadly, their populations have drastically declined but the other wildlife you see and even just being on the boat was wonderful. Customer service wasn't the same with some of the other companies and I can say that the staff here genuinely care about what they do and about wildlife.
Paul, the marine biologists and the crew are all brilliant. The day was one to remember. They have thought of everything and tried their best to provide the best experience possible. I will be back to see some Great Whites next. Would highly recommend!
