Having wanted to do this since I was little, there was a huge amount of expectation but I wasn't disappointed. After a very early pick up in camps bay we were greeted in Gansbaai with a beautiful sunrise and breakfast. There was time for everything to be explained thoroughly, with questions and we never felt rushed. The boat had space... More

With family from Australia this had been a bucket list item. Very well organised and a friendly, knowledgeable and caring crew. We were very fortunate that within 15 minutes of having dropped anchor we got to see our first of seven Great Whites - which we were advised was not that common. Excellent sightings both from the boat and from... More

We were spoilt with 5 sharks around the boat with the biggest being 4m's. The company have everything very well arranged with breakfast ready on arrival, jackets for the boat and lunch on return. A great experience.

In a nutshell, everything about this trip was awesome. I feel privileged to have met such a great team who clearly care deeply about the protection and conservation of one of the most misunderstood creatures on earth. It's a 'must-do' for anyone thinking about it. Thank you to everyone on the team for everything, it was an experience we will... More

The Volunteer Team introduced us to to their research methods and allowed us to participate side by side in their efforts. I gained an invaluable understanding of these... More

We had a load of fun doing this trip! After waiting a bit we got to see a big shark followed by two smaller ones. They fed us a nice lunch and took us back home, we really enjoyed it. Now for the somewhat unfortunate parts of the experience.. I did buy this as my boyfriends 30th birthday gift and... More

What an amazing experience and time with the White Shark Diving Co., I flew in from the states and they assisted me along the way on pick up times and updates on the dives coming up. We had been rained out on the first day, and they had set up a car and driver to take up around to anywhere... More

Not only an outstanding tour and an experience I've wanted since I was a kid but service was above all. Had a three day package with two shark dives but the first got cancelled due to weather, the white shark diving company organized a driver to the tip of Africa so that the weather wouldn't hinder our vacation. On the... More

After a long time dreaming about seeing a Great White Shark, my dream came true. The trip with White Shark Dive Comany was very professional. The pre-dive brief was very detailed. On the boat,dive suits was given to each person. The only downside was the suits were cold and wet. Yes, this can be the case during diving. I have... More
