        Great White in Mossel Bay

        No communication at all.
        This company has the worst response time for e mail. We booked a trip for Great White diving. It was cancelled the day before. Was asked if we can move it to another day. Mind you we travelled from the USA to do this. We have other plans booked I was told National Geographic has blood their boats for two weeks. We stayed in Mossel bay as it was on our way to Cape Town. I am not sure whom it is to blame. Jaman booking agency/ Trip advisor or the diving company. I could have saved myself a lot of time and traveled to another town to see sharks (probably not Great whites though ) as they are not found in other locations. Summary get your act together.

        Great
        I liked the experience and the company very much. They were always in touch prior to the trip answering all kinds of questions. The trip was nice, the crew great, videographer with a great sense of humor took videos that we got. I was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast and lunch we were offered. Well organized. The company is definitely recommended. As for experience I would like to have some more :) It was quite quick for me and not enough to enjoy to the fullest. May be will try again one day.

        Great!!!
        I loved it. It was definitely the highlight of my trip. I saw about 30 different sharks. It was scary but definitely safe and worth the experience.

        Excellent tour with up-close views of sharks
        I recently went on the shark cage diving tour in the beginning of Feb and had a very good experience with the whole trip. I was picked up within the time frame as communicated (get whatsapp as it is the best communication tour while in South Africa for foreigners), we were provided breakfast and lunch, the crew was very well organized and gave very detailed explanations of everything and the boat and cage launch were very smooth. It is a great learning experience too as you get to learn more details regarding how sharks play a role in the marine life and how they're misunderstood creatures. Highly recommend this tour!

        Well organized.
        I really enjoyed my shark diving trip this morning. The company picked me up right on time and was very efficient is picking up the other passengers in Cape Town. When we arrived in Gansbaai, they checked everyone in, handed out wetsuits, and served breakfast. The boat was nice and they had stairs that rolled up to the boat which is a nice touch for folks that don’t do a lot of boating. We entered the cages in groups of five (there were ten on the boat), and there were about 6-7 sharks (wow!) that had a good time with us. Lunch was served and showers were provided when we returned to land. They shared a video of the day and drove us back to Cape Town by about 3pm. Fun experience!

        Great White Ventures
        Me and my boyfriend visited Cape Town for the first time. Since many years we dreamed to Shark Diving and so we booked the tour with Great White Ventures in Gansbaai. We left at 10 am around from the beach, after the breakfast included in the ticket. We saw many sharks, mostly bronze. They told us it's quite difficult to see the great white because it depends of the season, of the movements of the seals and because there are only a three thousand in the total World. We were so excited of this adventure and we recommend it a lot. Valentina & Alessandro from Italy

      Unfortunately we didn’t see any sharks but the boat staff tried very hard to lure them in for several hours. When we finally gave up they took us on a quick ride to see the seals which was cool. They also provided good snacks and water/juice on the boat. There was also fresh coffee at the meet up location and our shuttle driver was very nice. (Note: first outing was canceled due to weather a couple days prior so we fit this in on our last day in Cape Town)

      Personally think they should either give a partial refund when that happens or offer a voucher to use at a different time. In addition they charged more than half for our additional 4th person to ride on the boat with us (not diving) and the boat was less than half capacity. (Her son was diving so she wanted to be there to take pictures and watch.)

      Lastly, they did not provide anyone to take any photos so come with camera ready! 😉

      Dear JJ Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately no one can ever guarantee sightings for obvious reasons. We dealing with wild animals in the open ocean. Viewers do pay the same price as divers otherwise everyone would want to come on the boat to take pictures. As you mentioned our crew tried for several hours to attract sharks and as always endeavor to do so. I believe it’s totally ingenious to base your rating on the fact there were no sightings as your review title mentions. If you go on an excellent game drive but see no animals it would be unfair to give it a poor rating. I’m very disappointed with this review as I find it baseless. We do in fact do vouchers to come back another time free of charge Regards Stephen Owner We unable to do monetary refunds as it is very costly to run a tour for obvious reasons too (fuel, staff, etc)
