About
For a memorable and unique Cape Town adventure, nothing can be more exhilarating than a cage diving and surface viewing tour to meet the mighty great white shark. One of the few places in the world where white sharks can be observed regularly at any time of the year, Gansbaai is known as the shark diving capital of the world. The watery habitat of the apex predator is not glamorous and this tour is highly weather dependent - this is mother nature at her most temperamental and raw; only when you see your first flash of steely grey sliding purposefully towards the boat, will you understand the magnetic beauty of the great white shark. Indescribable. No previous diving experience is necessary to enter the cage and everything you will need to fully enjoy the tour is provided, from your meals, to your dive equipment and even the convenient and comfy shuttle that Shark Zone can provide to get you there. As Cape Town's #1 booking agent for great white shark tours, Shark Zone will make sure you get the best deal, hassle-free!

Had an amazing trip, the crew worked really hard for us. We managed to see some magnificent great white sharks in Mossel Bay.

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)

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.
