Highly professional. Before I boarded the boat all my anxiety disappeared, thanks to Jess. Great facilities for before and after the adventure!! Skipper and crew extremely professional, felt completely safe. Made my experience extremely pleasant and worth it all round. Very accommodating and open to questions posed by all on board.
For any first timer and next timer I highly recommend WHITE SHARK PROJECTS.

White shark project trip was a wonderful 1/2 day trip. We were pickup at our hotel in Cape Town at 4:15 am and drove for two hrs. My family slept but I stayed awake and watched the sunrise over the mts. And vineyards on the way.
Once there we were fed a wonderful breakfast and told what to expect.
We traveled only a short distance out and then the cage was dropped in . Six people go in at a time. We saw numerous copper whaler sharks ( up to 10) the largest being 15’ and a short tale stingray. Unfortunately no great whites as the orca whales are eating them and they know to stay away. We were given 2-3 opportunities to go into the cage. After 2 hrs on the water we headed back in and we were fed lunch and changed into dry clothes for the journey home. Great experience!

Fantastic experience great day out.
The team were very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable with your safety paramount.
It was the most amazing experience we saw a great white and a few other sharks, seeing the sharks so close up was breath taking.
There was great camaraderie between the crew and the passengers all eager to ensure you had the best time.
My son took some amazing photos, the crew also take a video of this experience that you can purchase at the end of your day
I would recommend this trip, I would go back again in a heartbeat.

We see some small sharks. We pay the full price while the organizers know full well that we will not see great white sharks. Since the guides tell us in the boat that the great whites were chased by killer whales. Okay, that's nature. But then why keep the same prices as for the great whites? And the name of the activity is misleading. It should be called "shark cage diving" and no longer "Great White Shark cage diving".

The most fun and adventurous trip I have ever been on!! The team at White Shark Projects were so lovely and knew so much about the sharks! Was very impressed! I felt very safe and secure on the boat and the team made sure we were all okay which made me feel very happy. It felt so surreal actually seeing the sharks in the flesh compared to seeing them on a screen in a nature documentary perhaps - it was so insane!! I had seen a 4 metre whale shark, and two bronzer whale sharks! Scary but honestly so breathtaking! The thrilling atmosphere on the boat and seeing the people around us so excited was something that will stick with me for a long time.

When we came off the boat, we were able to see pictures and videos that the team had taken of us - an amazing team that you could tell were extremely passionate about the project and would give you an amazing experience every time!

We were treated with immaculate breakfast and lunch facilities, served by lovely, friendly staff who couldn't have done more for us this entire trip. Our lodge and shower facilities were super and out of this world!

Thank you so much to White Shark Projects for making this incomparable experience I will never ever forget. Our South Africa trip was truly made. I would definitely return back here in a heartbeat. The BEST!!!!

Hello Bobby! Our team is highly experienced and we have had some of the same staff for the past 16 years which really shows when it comes to customer service. Are lodge in the past year has undergone massive renovations and now we have the best facilities in this area for cage diving clients. I know you were enquiring about accommodation and coming back at some point so please contact us. Above our ocean view lodge we have a 5 bedroom luxury guest accommodation so you can literally sleep, eat, breath and dream with our sharks. I will pass your review back to our team and they will be thrilled to hear what a jawsome time you had hear with us. hanks again!

Needed to write this review to thank the White Shark Project for a fantastic experience from start to finish. The team made us feel very welcome and explained everything about the trip and answered all our questions. I was impressed by the knowledge of the crew and how conservation of the sharks in their environment is paramount ( they also touched on reducing plastic) The equipment on the boat was well maintained and there was wet suits to fit all sizes and plenty of help to get them on 😉. The most incredible moment was when we saw a 4 metre white shark which was breathtaking!!! We couldn't believe that this was then followed by 2 bronze whaler sharks, the atmosphere on the boat was thrilling everyone was so excited to see these beautiful fish we were very privileged. When we got off the boat the team were eager to share our experience by reliving it and showed us a video that they'd taken on board. You could tell they are very passionate about this project and the sharks,I was so impressed. We had breakfast and lunch which was of high quality served by friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us while we were there. Shower facilities were out of this world. The team/crew treated us like a family, I felt very safe there on land and at sea and would love to return back there. Great value for money. Thank you again !!!

07:00 is the perfect time to visit Sharks in Gansbaai as they are the most active early in the morning. It was perfect weather and with a great breakfast spread before getting a safety brief by an excellent Marine guide.The friendly staff fitted us with life jackets before boarding the boat. For the next 2 hrs we were rotated in and out the cage for Shark viewing of 13 Sharks around the boat with seals in the mix. Allround a wonderful day out.

What a great setup and team. From breakfast to the end it was great. Never saw, a great white but saw few sharks and an amazing stingray who stay close all the time. The team were so friendly and knowledgeable. The weather, was perfect and a great time was had by everyone on board. Highly recommended.

Had the Best time with Tim and the crew! Take sea sick pills if you are not used to the water as there can be some decent waves, a few people on our boat were not feeling too hot but had plenty of warning about sea sickness.
The sharks were awesome, and we even got to see a huge stingray up close. Unfortunately no Great White, but any sharks that close to you when you are in the cage is pretty crazy!
