I have to admit I was really hesitant to even get on the boat and was only going because it was a bucket list item for my friend... but after hearing how passionate the crew was about shark conservation and safety, I even got in the cage!! It exceeded my expectations. I felt safe and got to see these beautiful... More

I did see sharks...and they allow us to be in the cage for quite a long time. I would say is pretty good. Only problem is the water isnt really clear so can only see the sharks when they are real close in the water.

Great team ensured an educational and exciting experience. Got within 6 inches of a great white shark in the water as it thrashed around! Amazing! Worth hacking the visibility of the sea so you manage expectations, on the day we went out it. Was only about 1.5m of vis. Even if you're not going in the water you still get... More

This was hands down one of the coolest things I've ever done. Cage diving with sharks has been on my bucket list since forever and White Shark Africa made it happen. They took really good care of us from the start and worked so hard to get the sharks to come visit us. After anchoring up outside Seal Island we... More

We were very lucky to get a trip out as the weather had turned during our stay and the boats were not going out in the rough conditions. We were very excited to learn that our trip was going ahead and travelled to Mossel Bay in the morning. The early trip returned while we were having breakfast and they were... More
